Maternal Dairy Consumption and Hematochezia in Exclusively Breastfed Infants.

J Hum Lact 2019 Apr 23:890334419838476. Epub 2019 Apr 23.

1 Division of Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology, and Nutrition, Department of Pediatrics, NYU Winthrop Hospital, Mineola, NY, USA.

Background: When an exclusively breastfed infant develops hematochezia, the pediatrician may recommend elimination of dairy and soy products from a mother's diet, but there is limited scientific evidence to indicate that altering the maternal diet will lead to resolution of the problem.

Research Aim: To estimate the likelihood that maternal dairy and soy avoidance will resolve rectal bleeding in an exclusively breastfed infant.

Methods: This was a prospective, longitudinal, one-group pre/post study involving mothers of exclusively breastfed infants at least 2 weeks but less than 6 months of age with a positive stool guaiac test in the absence of an intestinal lesion or other explanation for the blood. Read More

Lactation Support for LGBTQIA+ Families.

J Hum Lact 2019 May;35(2):244-247

3 Durham Lactation LLC, Durham, NC, USA.

Background: Despite a documented underutilization of healthcare by the LGBTQIA+ community due to fear of mistreatment, reproduction incurs a likely dependence on the medical system. Within breastfeeding medicine, the language used for breastfeeding or chestfeeding has broadened and there is an emphasis on inclusion of all types of gender identities; however, that care can be heavily biased toward the inclusion of all breasts/chests in infant feeding.

Research Aim: The purpose of this case study was to examine the impact of queer identity on the gestational and postpartum experience of a bisexual woman married to, and parenting with, a transgender man. Read More

Expressing Motherhood: Wet Nursing and Human Milk Banking in Brazil.

J Hum Lact 2019 May 28;35(2):354-361. Epub 2019 Mar 28.

1 Departments of History and of Romance Languages and Literatures, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI, USA.

In early twentieth-century Brazil the proponents of human milk banking considered this development to signal the end of wet nursing and the start of a whole new day, one altogether better for the paid donors of human milk, their children, and the children in need of human milk. But wet nursing persisted alongside the new human milk banks for most of the twentieth century. Moreover, as this paper argues, the organizers and directors of milk banks drew on and constructed ideas about wet nursing, and about the generations of poor Afro-Brazilian women who had performed this labor, in the design and operation of the first milk banks.

Reflexivity in Qualitative Research.

Authors:
Joan E Dodgson

J Hum Lact 2019 May 8;35(2):220-222. Epub 2019 Mar 8.

1 Saint Louis University, Saint Louis, MO, USA.

All qualitative research is contextual; it occurs within a specific time and place between two or more people. If a researcher clearly describes the contextual intersecting relationships between the participants and themselves (reflexivity), it not only increases the creditability of the findings but also deepens our understanding of the work. The issues surrounding the researchers' reflexivity are many and complex; however, journal space for discussing them may be very limited. Read More

Maintaining Breastfeeding During Severe Infant and Maternal HSV-1 Infection: A Case Report.

J Hum Lact 2019 Mar 6:890334419830994. Epub 2019 Mar 6.

2 Professor of Perinatal Nursing & Helen M. Shearer Professor of Nutrition, University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing, Philadelphia, PA, USA.

Introduction:: Childbearing women with primary or secondary Herpes Simplex Virus type 1 infection are at risk of transmitting neonatal herpes infection to their infants; a medical emergency that is associated with high mortality and morbidity. Neonatal herpes infection has been commonly associated with Herpes Simplex Virus type 2, or genital herpes, but can be caused by either subtype and the presentations are indistinguishable. This case describes the course of diagnosis, treatment, and recovery for a mother and infant during a severe maternal and neonatal herpes infection, and how lactation was maintained and breastfeeding re-established.

Queering Lactation: Contributions of Queer Theory to Lactation Support for LGBTQIA2S+ Individuals and Families.

Authors:
Robyn Lee

J Hum Lact 2019 May 6;35(2):233-238. Epub 2019 Mar 6.

1 Department of Sociology, University of Alberta, Edmonton, AB, Canada.

In this article I explore some contributions of queer theory to the provision of lactation support services. In doing so, I also undertake an intersectional analysis of queering lactation, recognizing that forms of oppression do not impact all individuals equally or in the same ways. While recognizing the history of tensions between queer and feminist politics and activism, I argue that queering lactation holds significant benefits for supporting lactation among LGBT families, as well as opening up possibilities for rethinking gender and possibilities for gender equality more generally.

J Hum Lact 2019 May 5;35(2):301-317. Epub 2018 Dec 5.

1 California Adolescent Health Collaborative.

Background: Young mothers (age 14-24 years), who are often low income, are less likely than other mothers to breastfeed for 6 months. They also are more likely to be diagnosed with aggressive forms of breast cancer; breastfeeding significantly reduces this risk. While adolescent breastfeeding has been investigated from the perspective of the individual, the social ecological model recognizes the influence of factors at multiple levels. Read More

Designing Longitudinal Clinical Studies Involving Lactating Women.

J Hum Lact 2019 Feb 27;35(1):32-36. Epub 2018 Nov 27.

3 Women's and Children's Services, Medical University of South Carolina, Charleston, SC, USA.

In designing longitudinal lactation research studies, certain factors must be taken into account that are necessary for the generation of meaningful data. Perhaps more like longitudinal childhood research studies in terms of ongoing changes that occur during childhood that challenge study design, longitudinal lactation research studies encompass a period of tremendous change in both the mother and her breastfeeding infant that affect study design, implementation, and analysis. Given this changing dynamic, studies should be designed to accommodate a whole host of factors, such as changes in maternal and infant health; coexisting conditions during the lactation period; the stage of lactation; diurnal variations; the frequency and exclusivity of breastfeeding; maternal diet and any complementary/supplementary foods given to the infant; geography; socioeconomic factors; body mass index; physical activity; and any changes in milk composition that occur across longer periods of lactation.

Background:: Insufficient milk production is among the most cited reasons by mothers for discontinuing breastfeeding. Medications that can increase milk production, such as domperidone, an off-label galactagogue, are often prescribed. Domperidone is controversial as it is not approved for any purpose in the United States and is approved only for gastrokinetic purposes in Canada and other countries. Read More
