Relationship among Breastfeeding Exposure, Knowledge, and Attitudes in Collegiate Males Residing in East Texas.

J Hum Lact 2018 Dec 13:890334418817516. Epub 2018 Dec 13.

2 Sam Houston State University, College of Health Sciences, Family and Consumer Sciences, Huntsville, TX, USA.

Background: Researchers exploring breastfeeding attitudes and knowledge among women suggest the decision to breastfeed is influenced by the male partner, yet few studies address males. Because collegiate males will soon enter fatherhood, assessment of their attitudes and knowledge may inform interventions aimed at increasing intention to breastfeed.

Research Aim: This study aimed to describe collegiate males' exposure to, attitude toward, and knowledge about breastfeeding. Read More

Multilevel Factors Influencing Young Mothers' Breastfeeding: A Qualitative CBPR Study.

J Hum Lact 2018 Dec 5:890334418812076. 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 2018 Nov 27:890334418812362. 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.

J Hum Lact 2018 Nov 27:890334418812069. Epub 2018 Nov 27.

2 Discipline of Pediatrics, Faculty of Medicine, Memorial University of Newfoundland, St. John's, NL, Canada.

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

Black Nurse, White Milk: Breastfeeding, Slavery, and Abolition in 19th-Century Brazil.

Authors:
Cassia Roth

J Hum Lact 2018 Nov 19;34(4):804-809. Epub 2018 Sep 19.

1 Department of History, University of Georgia, Athens, GA, USA.

Brazil imported more enslaved Africans than any other slave-owning society in the Americas, and it was the last country in the western hemisphere to abolish the institution. Whereas many enslaved persons toiled on plantations and in mines, urban slavery was also prominent, with enslaved men carrying coffee through the streets and enslaved women washing clothes. One gendered aspect of urban slavery in 19th-century Brazil included slave owners renting out enslaved women as wet nurses to breastfeed the children of elite families. Read More

Methods: A prospective, quantitative, and self-report online survey design was used. Read More

Breastfeeding Without Nursing: "If Only I'd Known More about Exclusively Pumping before Giving Birth".

Authors:
Fiona M Jardine

J Hum Lact 2018 Jul 1:890334418784562. Epub 2018 Jul 1.

1 College of Information Studies, University of Maryland, College Park, MD, USA.

Background: Human milk is understood to be the optimal nutrition for infants, yet many women struggle to nurse. Although exclusively pumping human milk can provide a solution, women may be unaware of this possibility and, thus, experience unnecessary frustration. Research aim: This study aimed to (a) determine the proportion of respondents who had heard of exclusive pumping prenatally, (b) describe sources that respondents turned to and/or received breastfeeding-related information from prenatally, (c) explore the ways in which respondents learned prenatally about exclusive pumping, (d) describe how useful respondents found various information sources when learning about exclusive pumping, and (e) describe the differences between respondents who first heard the term exclusive pumping prenatally versus postpartum.
