Comparing Alternative Breast Milk Feeding Questions to U.S. Breastfeeding Surveillance Questions.

Breastfeed Med 2019 Apr 2. Epub 2019 Apr 2.

1 Division of Nutritional Sciences, Cornell University, Ithaca, New York.

Background: Most mothers in the United States express their milk, which is then bottle fed to their infants. The National Immunization Survey (NIS), used to report national breastfeeding prevalence, asks about infant breast milk consumption, regardless of whether it is consumed at the mother's breast or from a bottle. The NIS data are often erroneously interpreted, however, to mean prevalence of at-the-breast feeding. Read More

A Pilot Study to Assess Breastfeeding Knowledge, Attitudes, and Perceptions of Individuals Who Work in Perinatal Opioid Use Disorder Treatment Settings.

Breastfeed Med 2019 Mar 19. Epub 2019 Mar 19.

1 Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Thomas Jefferson University, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Background: Although current evidence suggests that there are unique benefits of breastfeeding for mothers receiving comprehensive treatment, including counseling and pharmacotherapy, for opioid use disorder (OUD) and their infants, breastfeeding rates in this population are low. Support and counseling about breastfeeding are key predictors of infant feeding behaviors. Thus, identifying knowledge and attitudes regarding breastfeeding of individuals who work in OUD treatment facilities could offer insight into targets for breastfeeding-promotion interventions in such settings.

Is Frozen Human Milk That Is Refused by Mother's Own Infant Suitable for Human Milk Bank Donation?

Breastfeed Med 2019 Feb 21. Epub 2019 Feb 21.

3 Rogers Hixon Ontario Human Milk Bank, Toronto, Canada.

Background: Infant refusal to feed previously frozen human milk is thought possibly attributable to lipase, an enzyme that cleaves fatty acids from milk triglycerides potentially changing the taste of the milk. Previous reports suggest that this milk is not harmful to infants; however, the lipase activity, macronutrient content, concentration of free fatty acids (FFAs), pH, and bacterial load of milk that meets this criterion are not fully understood.

Objective: The objective was to determine whether refused frozen milk is different in composition from typical milk deposits received at a human milk bank. Read More
