INTRODUCTION: Mothers and infants are at high risk for inadequate vitamin D status. Mechanisms by which vitamin D may affect maternal and infant DNA methylation are poorly understood. OBJECTIVE: This study quantified the effects of vitamin D3 supplementation on DNA methylation in pregnant and lactating women and their breastfed infants. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In this randomized controlled pilot study, pregnant women received vitamin D3 400 international units (IU) (n = 6; control) or 3,800 IU (n = 7; intervention) daily from late second trimester through 4-6 weeks postpartum...

BACKGROUND: Mother-infant skin-to-skin contact (SSC) immediately after birth helps transition infants to the post-uterine environment and increases the likelihood of breastfeeding initiation and duration. This study examines trends in U.S. maternity practices related to SSC, and variations by facility demographics. METHODS: Data were from the Maternity Practices in Infant Nutrition and Care (mPINC) surveys (2007-2015), a biennial assessment of all U.S. maternity facilities...

BACKGROUND: Despite a mother's intention to breastfeed, there are many barriers to feeding preterm infants that decrease breastfeeding rates. OBJECTIVE: The objective of this research was to determine factors associated with successful direct breastfeeding (DBF) of the preterm infant at hospital discharge. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A retrospective chart review of 69 preterm (<34 weeks' gestational age) infants in the neonatal intensive care unit, whose mothers intended to breastfeed, was conducted...

BACKGROUND: Breast milk is considered the normative nutrition for human infants, and exclusive breastfeeding for the first 6 months of life is recommended by several national and global societies. Female physicians are a high-risk group for early unintended weaning. We aimed to assess and compare the most common barriers to successful breastfeeding perceived by female physicians in various stages of training and practice. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Female faculty physicians and trainees (medical students, resident physicians, and fellows) affiliated with a large medical university in 2016 were surveyed via an anonymous web-based survey distributed through institutional e-mail lists...

OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to evaluate the analgesic effects of maternal milk odor on newborns. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We searched the literature in PubMed, MEDLINE, CINAHL, EMBASE, Web of Science, and the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL) and collected all the randomized controlled trials (RCTs) investigating the effects of maternal milk odor versus scentless or other odors on procedural pain in newborns. The quality of included studies was assessed by the Cochrane Collaboration Risk of Bias tool...

A central goal of the Academy of Breastfeeding Medicine is the development of clinical protocols, free from commercial interest or influence, for managing common medical problems that may impact breastfeeding success. These protocols serve only as guidelines for the care of breastfeeding mothers and infants and do not delineate an exclusive course of treatment or serve as standards of medical care. Variations in treatment may be appropriate according to the needs of an individual patient.

INTRODUCTION: Serratia marcescens is an opportunistic pathogen and common cause of infectious outbreaks in pediatric units, leading to both significant morbidity and mortality in immunocompromised hosts. Environmental and some clinical strains may produce a characteristic red pigment, prodigiosin. Colonization can hence turn breast milk and fecally-soiled diapers pink, which can lead otherwise unaffected patients to present to their physicians and also interrupt breastfeeding. No clear guidance exists regarding the outpatient management of breastfeeding mothers and infants colonized with S...

Lea Pounds, Valerie Shostrom
BACKGROUND: Benefits of breastfeeding are well established. What is more, breastfeeding is associated with lower healthcare costs. More U.S. hospitals are adopting the World Health Organization's Ten Steps to Successful Breastfeeding; however, most hospitals fall short on key factors. OBJECTIVE: To our knowledge, this project is the first of its kind to use national-level data and a complex statistical modeling approach to identify a more complete picture of the variables related to breastfeeding duration within the postpartum period...

OBJECTIVE: Mothers of premature infants confront barriers to coming to volume (CTV; ≥500 mL/day mother's own milk [MOM] by postpartum day 14), a strong predictor of continued MOM provision at neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) discharge. We sought to determine concentrations of secretory activation biomarkers (MOM sodium, total protein, lactose, and citrate) during the first 14 postpartum days and to describe relationships among these biomarkers, pumped MOM volume, CTV, and pumping frequency...

OBJECTIVES: Recently, an increasing number of studies have implied that breastfeeding has a protective effect on maternal hypertension, but it remains controversial. The aim of this study is to evaluate the effect of breastfeeding on maternal hypertension through meta-analysis. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Eligible studies were searched and identified in various databases. Meta-analysis was conducted to assess the association between the duration of breastfeeding and maternal hypertension...

BACKGROUND: Latching is an important process of breastfeeding and should be taught and practiced by the postpartum mother. OBJECTIVE: The objective is to compare latching outcomes between video-assisted and routine teaching methods among postpartum women. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A randomized controlled trial was conducted. Postpartum women who had deliveries without complications were randomized into two groups: 14 cases in the video-assisted teaching group and 14 cases in a routine teaching group...

BACKGROUND: Maternal breast engorgement is one of the most common problems in the postpartum period. There are several alternative treatments, but there have not been any randomized controlled trial studies about the effects of herbal compresses for breast engorgement. OBJECTIVE: The objective is to investigate the effects of herbal compresses for maternal breast engorgement. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A randomized controlled trial was conducted...

BACKGROUND: Numerous studies have reported the associations between the type of feeding during infancy and subsequent chronic diseases. OBJECTIVE: The objective of this systematic review is to synthesize the available literature concerning the effect of breastfeeding in infancy on physical and cardiorespiratory fitness in children and adolescents. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We performed a comprehensive search of medical bibliographic databases to identify observational studies reporting the association between breastfeeding and cardiorespiratory or physical fitness...

BACKGROUND: It is not uncommon for mothers to have persistent pain with breastfeeding beyond the first few weeks after birth. Persistent pain can be multifactorial, with neuropathic pain maintained by central sensitization being one dimension. Our knowledge in delineating categories of persistent pain is simple and not very sophisticated. METHODS: We have developed and tested a Lactation Quantitative Sensory Test (L-QST) to quantify the neuropathic component of persistent breastfeeding pain...

OBJECTIVES: Among opioid-exposed newborns, breastfeeding is associated with less severe withdrawal signs, yet breastfeeding rates remain low. We determined the extent to which hospital, maternal, and infant characteristics are associated with breastfeeding initiation and continuation among opioid-exposed dyads. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We examined breastfeeding initiation and continuation until infants' discharge among opioid-exposed dyads from 2006 to 2016. Among dyads meeting hospital breastfeeding guidelines, we assessed hospital (changes in breastfeeding guidelines and improvement initiatives [using delivery year as a proxy]), maternal (demographics, comorbid conditions, methadone versus buprenorphine treatment, and delivery mode), and infant (gestational age and birth weight) characteristics...
