Comparison of the Macronutrient Content of Colostrum: Locals with Refugees.

Breastfeed Med 2020 May 28. Epub 2020 May 28.

Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, Ankara City Hospital, University of Health Sciences, Ankara, Turkey.

Breast milk (BM) is considered the ideal and natural way of feeding for all infants. Although previous studies evaluated the factors influencing the content of BM, data concerning the effect of being a refugee on macronutrient contents of BM are rather inadequate. Therefore, we aimed to compare the macronutrient content of colostrum samples of Turkish and Syrian mothers. Read More

Parity and the Association Between Maternal Socio-Demographic Characteristics and Breastfeeding.

Breastfeed Med 2020 May 22. Epub 2020 May 22.

Department of Pediatrics, Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina University, Greenville, North Carolina, USA.

Although clinicians recognize the importance of breastfeeding for child health, breastfeeding initiation can be limited by maternal characteristics such as race/ethnicity, age at first birth, and educational attainment. We hypothesized that the strong influence of prior infant feeding experiences on multiparous women's decision to initiate and continue breastfeeding may mean that these maternal characteristics influence breastfeeding more strongly for primiparas than multiparas. Using PRAMS (Phase 8) survey data from 2016 to 2017, we analyzed mothers' responses to the supplemental question about parity, "Before you got pregnant with your new baby, did you ever have any other babies who were born alive?" Study variables were summarized by using weighted means and proportions and compared according to parity by using Wald tests. Read More

Exclusive Breastfeeding Rates at 6 Weeks Postpartum as a Function of Preconception Body Mass Index Are Not Impacted by Postpartum Obstetrical Practices or Routines.

Breastfeed Med 2020 May 15. Epub 2020 May 15.

Knight Cardiovascular Institute, Oregon Health & Science University, Portland, Oregon, USA.

Women with overweight/obesity have significantly lower rates of exclusive breastfeeding (EBF) at 6 weeks postpartum compared with women of normal weight. We sought to determine whether differences in Baby-Friendly Hospital Initiative (BFHI) adherence, obstetric practices, or social support explain these weight-related EBF disparities. One hundred forty-two healthy women who intended EBF (61 normal weight, 50 overweight, and 31 obese by preconception body mass index [BMI]) were enrolled in a cross-sectional study. Read More

Neurodevelopmental Outcome of Extremely Low Birth Weight Infants Fed an Exclusive Human Milk Diet Is Not Affected by Growth Velocity.

Breastfeed Med 2020 Apr 20. Epub 2020 Apr 20.

Westchester Medical Center, Division of Newborn Medicine, Maria Fareri Children's Hospital, Valhalla, New York, USA.

An exclusive human milk (EHM) diet in extremely low birth weight (ELBW) infants (birth weight ≤1,000 g) is linked to an increased likelihood of extrauterine growth restriction (EUGR, weight <10% at discharge). Past studies associated EUGR with worse neurodevelopmental (ND) outcomes; however, its impact when an EHM diet is used is unknown. Determine whether EUGR adversely affects 2-year ND outcomes of ELBW infants fed an EHM diet. Read More

Economic Analysis of Exclusive Human Milk Diets for High-Risk Neonates, a Canadian Hospital Perspective.

Breastfeed Med 2020 Apr 17. Epub 2020 Apr 17.

Ottawa Hospital Research Institute, Ontario, Canada.

There is increasing evidence that premature newborns and infants with low birth weight can benefit substantially from an exclusive human milk-based diet (EHMD), consisting of human milk supplemented with a pasteurized donor human milk-derived fortifier. However, compared with the standard infant diet, EHMD also represents a significant added cost to the hospital and/or health system, thereby raising important questions about the economic feasibility of incorporating EHMD into newborn care. We conducted a cost analysis and estimated the potential cost savings to a Canadian tertiary hospital based on the attributable complications averted from EHMD among low-weight neonates. Read More

Characteristics of and Sources of Support for Women Who Breastfed Multiples for More than 12 Months.

Breastfeed Med 2020 Apr 14;15(4):213-223. Epub 2020 Feb 14.

The Ohio State University College of Public Health, Division of Epidemiology, Columbus, Ohio.
