  1. Columns: Probe name = LEP CpG sites from Illumina Infinium MethylationEPIC Beadchip significantly associated with total breastfeeding duration; Estimate = coefficient denoting the increase or decrease in methylation by one unit (in week) of increase of total breastfeeding duration; SE = standard error of coefficient; P value < 0.05 was considered significant. Only the four CpG sites considered significant are included, see Additional file 1: Table S5, for all 23 CpG sites tested
