Retrospective and Prospective Determination of the Cow's Milk-Related Symptom Score (CoMiSS™) Values in Symptomatic Infants.

Pediatr Gastroenterol Hepatol Nutr 2021 Jul 5;24(4):384-391. Epub 2021 Jul 5.

Department of Paediatrics, Medical University of Warsaw, Warsaw, Poland.

Purpose: The Cow's Milk-related Symptom Score (CoMiSS™) was developed as an awareness tool for evaluating cow's milk-related symptoms in otherwise healthy children.

Clinical Evidence of Vestibular Dysregulation in Colicky Babies Before and After Chiropractic Treatment vs. Non-colicky Babies.

Jan Hoeve

Front Pediatr 2021 28;9:668457. Epub 2021 May 28.

Chiropractie Staphorst, Staphorst, Netherlands.

To date, after 65 years of research that was primarily directed at differentiating between normal and colicky crying, the cause of infantile colic remains elusive and no definitive cure has been found. Given the general absence of pathology, colicky crying is widely considered the extreme end of a spectrum of normal crying behavior. However, evidence gleaned from scattered sources throughout the literature suggests that infantile colic may be the behavioral expression of physiological brainstem dysregulation, particularly of the vestibular and autonomic systems.

(Re-)activity in the caregiving situation: Genetic diversity within Oxytocin-Vasopressin Pathway is associated with salivary oxytocin and vasopressin concentrations in response to contact with a crying infant-simulator.

Psychoneuroendocrinology 2021 Jun 1;131:105294. Epub 2021 Jun 1.

Intercollegiate Faculty of Biotechnology of University of Gdańsk and Medical University of Gdańsk, ul. Abrahama 58, 80-307 Gdańsk, Poland. Electronic address:

Oxytocin (OT) and vasopressin (AVP) hormones as well as their receptors (OXTR and AVPR1a) have been deemed crucial for caregiving and sensitive responsiveness to infant cues. However, previous research on genetic polymorphisms and OT and AVP levels in the context of caregiving were sparse and have brought contradictory findings. The aim of this reported observational study was to examine the impact of genetic variations within genes related to OT and AVP signaling pathway on hormones levels' changes in response to the caregiving situation.

Background: Mothers' lack of information about crying spells in infantile colic and feeling of insufficiency create anxiety in mothers, a decrease in satisfaction with being a mother and make them feel insufficient and tired. Fatigue in breastfeeding mothers can also lead to changes in milk biology and cause insufficient milk secretion.

Methods: This study aims to determine the perceived breast milk insufficiency of mothers of infants with infantile colic and mothers of healthy infants. Read More

A comprehensive model of women's social cognition and responsiveness to infant crying: Integrating personality, emotion, executive function, and sleep.

Infant Behav Dev 2021 May 25;64:101577. Epub 2021 May 25.

Meredith College, United States.

Disparate lines of research suggest that women's (a) emotion regulation and personality, (b) executive function and (c) sleep may be important predictors of mothers' cry responding in part through their effects on social cognition. However, the extent to which each contributes to cry responding independently remains unknown. We examined this question in a convenience sample of 109 nulliparous undergraduate women. Read More

Department of Psychology, Stony Brook University.

: Attachment theory suggests that parent responsiveness to infant distress predicts secure parent-child attachment and subsequent healthy child development. While much is known about microsystem factors that interfere with responsive caregiving, there is a paucity of research investigating how exosystem factors, such as neighborhood crime, affect parenting.: In a sample of 200 diverse caregivers and their 5- to 21-month-old infants ( = 11.

Preventing abusive head trauma: can educating parents reduce the incidence?

Pediatr Radiol 2021 May 17;51(6):1093-1096. Epub 2021 May 17.

Public Health Sciences, Penn State College of Medicine,, Penn State Health Hershey Medical Center, Hershey, PA, USA.

Abusive head trauma (AHT) is the most lethal form of child abuse; preventing AHT should be a national priority, but research into this area is woefully underfunded. Prevention programs have primarily focused on universal parent education during the neonatal period, a time when parents are a captive audience of the health care establishment whose focus is on the needs of their newborn infant, and who will soon be exposed to the frustration and anger of infant crying. Research has suggested a strong causal link between infant crying and AHT, and parents - particularly fathers and father figures - have been identified as the most common perpetrators of AHT.

Commentary: Response to commentary by Davis and Kramer (2021).

J Child Psychol Psychiatry 2021 May 11. Epub 2021 May 11.

Department of Psychology, University of Warwick, Coventry, UK.

Davis and Kramer (2021) in their commentary on our study (Bilgin & Wolke, 2020) state that we 'argue that leaving an infant to "cry it out", rather than responding to the child's cries, had no adverse effects on mother-infant attachment at 18 months' (Davis & Kramer, 2021, p. 1). Instead, we wrote that 'contemporary practice by some parents to occasionally or often "leaving infant to cry it out" during the first 6 months was not associated with adverse behavioural development and attachment at 18 months' (p.

Ann Palliat Med 2021 Apr;10(4):4384-4390

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Women's Hospital of Nanjing Medical University, Nanjing Maternity and Child Health Care Hospital, Nanjing, China.

Background: Heel blood sampling of newborns plays an important role in the diagnosis of neonatal hypothyroidism, phenylketonuria, and other inherited metabolic diseases. Embracing breast milk sucking (EBMS) can increase the newborn's sense of security and can relieve pain. The purpose of the present study was to explore the effect of EBMS on alleviating the pain of neonatal heel blood sampling. Read More

Replication crisis lost in translation? On translational caution and premature applications of attachment theory.

Attach Hum Dev 2021 Aug 5;23(4):422-437. Epub 2021 May 5.

Department of Clinical Child and Family Studies, and Amsterdam Public Health, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

In the biomedical, behavioral and neurobiological sciences reproducibility and replicability of research results have become a major issue. The question is whether attachment research is also plagued by lack of replicability, and if so whether one can speak of a crisis? Furthermore, discussions about the applicability of attachment research findings to policy and (clinical) practice have recently been intensified. The subsequent question arises whether one could even speak of a "translational crisis". Read More

Empathy and Hormonal Changes as Predictors of Sensitive Responsiveness towards Infant Crying: A Study Protocol.

Int J Environ Res Public Health 2021 04 30;18(9). Epub 2021 Apr 30.

Department of Psychology, Education and Child Studies, Erasmus University Rotterdam, 3062 Rotterdam, The Netherlands.

Sensitive responsiveness refers to parents' ability to recognize and respond to infants' cues and has been linked to parental empathy. Additionally, oxytocin (OT) and vasopressin (AVP) are hormones important for sensitivity and empathy. The aim of this study is to test the links between dispositional empathy along with changing OT and AVP levels and responsiveness to a life-like doll in couples and to verify whether these factors are predictors of responsiveness to a child's cues.
