The volume of milk consumed by infants is measured with deuterated water at each time point to determine actual infant nutrient intakes. The RVs will be constructed as percentile reference curves so that samples from other surveys and studies can be readily compared. Knowledge of human milk composition is critical for establishing dietary guidelines and the nutritional standards for breast milk substitutes. While human milk composition has been studied over many decades, it has nevertheless not been well defined. Lack of robust characterization of human milk components has been due to several limitations: the number of components to be analyzed; limitations in milk and data collection methods; and the lack of standardized, comparative studies in recent years.
Human milk is known to be highly variable, influenced by stage of lactation, time of day, genetics, maternal diet, and environment. Nevertheless, the role of each of these influences has not been well defined for the many components of human milk. And it is not clear how variable or consistent the composition of human milk is across populations. Reviews of breastfeeding intervention studies have shown that breastfeeding education and support, given during prenatal and postpartum periods with routine care by health professionals or non-health professionals, significantly increase exclusive breastfeeding and initiation of breastfeeding.
The availability and use of digital technologies have rapidly increased globally. Digital technologies bring the opportunity to educate and influence mothers, health professionals and the wider community. From looking at previous interventions, we will identify key elements to consider i. With recent changes to the nutritional strategies for preterm infants, early initiation of enteral nutrition is becoming a standard practice. For Japan, this all started about 20 years ago with a multicenter prospective study on early enteral feeding within 24 hours of birth.
The results were excellent: infants on early enteral feeding had lowered risks for chronic lung disease, necrotizing enterocolitis and cholestasis; they also showed better weight gain and cognitive development at 6 years of age. Initiating enteral feeding within 24 hours of birth was not difficult in those days as it was common practice to use another mother's unpasteurized milk.
With increasing awareness of disease transmission via unpasteurized breast milk, the practice of early enteral feeding was abolished. A new multicenter prospective study is currently under way to inform on the standardization of enteral nutrition using donor human milk DHM for very preterm infants. The other current challenge on infant nutrition is how to move toward an exclusive human milk diet.
We have had instances where infants suffered milk allergy or ileus due to fatty acid calcium stone with the use of bovine milk-based fortifier. We have been successful in lyophilizing MOM with no detectable contamination. Worldwide prevalence of exclusive breastfeeding has improved over the past decades. Although a similar rise has been observed in Malaysia, the practice is still not widespread. This presentation aims to examine breastfeeding rates in Malaysia and to explore barriers and motivators towards exclusive breastfeeding.
Findings from periodical National Health and Morbidity Surveys NHMS have reported increasing rates over the past two decades in ever-breastfeeding at Exclusive breastfeeding was more common among Malay mothers, housewives, and mothers with lower educational levels; while mothers from rural areas tend to breastfeed longer than their urban counterparts.
NHMS also reported that majority of mothers A qualitative study on successful exclusive breastfeeding pratices among mothers found that motivating factors include psychosocial, emotional, economic, adequate information on breastfeeding, and religion; whereas hindering factors were biophysical perceived insufficient supply , physiological changes, inconvenience, returning to work, and lack of facilities. In conclusion, although prevalence of breastfeeding in Malaysia is increasing, there are still large proportions of infants who are not breastfed.
Considerations that may aid in successful exclusive breastfeeding include social support and access to lactation consultant early on during the breastfeeding period. Background: Breastfeeding supports early and long-term development and can reduce disease-related morbidity. Methods: A multidisciplinary working group developed evidence-based, practical guidelines targeting mothers, healthy infants, and infants with specific needs.
Guidelines referenced existing domestic and international practices, while considering the current situation in contemporary China. Results: Guidelines were targeted 3 stages. In neonatology, the guideline includes intervention measures to promote early breastfeeding and early milk secretion, skin contact etc. In pediatrics, the guideline addresses assessment of breastfeeding efficacy, applications of growth curves, use of the Human Breastfeeding Assessment Scale and insufficient milk secretion, cow's milk protein allergy and poor growth, etc.
Conclusions: The guidelines provide scientific support for the actions promoted by the Ministry of Health and should play an important role in breastfeeding promotion in China. Background: Late preterm infants LPIs are at greater risk of short- and long-term morbidity than are term infants TIs. However, whether breastfeeding can reduce the adverse effect of late preterm birth on various diseases remains unclear. Hypothesis: Breastfeeding can modify the adverse effects of late preterm birth on hospitalization for respiratory and gastrointestinal infection from 6 to 18 months of age.
Methods: Data were extracted from a nationwide longitudinal survey of Japanese children. We next stratified the infants by breastfeeding status exclusively breastfeeding vs. Results: LPIs were more likely to be hospitalized for respiratory and gastrointestinal infection aOR, 1. Stratification by breastfeeding status showed that LPIs had a higher risk of hospitalization for respiratory infection in both strata. Conversely, a higher risk of hospitalization for gastrointestinal infection was observed only in the partially breastfeeding and formula-feeding stratum.
Exclusive breastfeeding seems to reduce the adverse effect of late preterm birth on gastrointestinal infection. The human milk microbiome consists of myriad types of bacteria, the presence and composition of which have varied across cohorts and studies. Variation has been associated with factors such as stage of lactation, maternal BMI, delivery mode, and maternal diet. Another major consideration in understanding this variation is understanding and controlling for potential effects of sampling and methodological differences on the results obtained.
To better understand biological, behavioral, and environmental factors contributing to the variation seen in the milk microbiome, the INSPIRE study was conducted. Milk, maternal saliva, and infant feces were collected using standardized protocols and supplies, and detailed information regarding maternal dietary intake, social and behavioral patterns, and family structure was collected in 11 different locations around the world.
Milk from each location was shipped to two laboratories Spain and USA , where DNA from the milk samples were extracted using similar protocols, amplified using PCR primers targeting hypervariable regions of the 16S rRNA gene, sequenced, and data analyzed to characterize the milk samples' bacterial compositions. Results from both laboratories suggest that Staphylococcus and Streptococcus were present in almost all milk samples, but more extensive sets of core bacteria were present in some of the cohorts.
Importantly, substantial intra- and inter-cohort variability existed in bacterial community membership within and among cohorts. Variation in the milk bacterial community was also associated with many factors, including the intake of various foods; for instance, relative abundance of Proteobacteria was higher in milk produced by women who consumed meat than those that did not. The past decade has experienced an immense increase in research on human milk oligosaccharides HMOs , a group of over unconjugated complex glycans that, together, represent the third most abundant solid component of human milk.
Our continuously evolving analytical platform allows us to generate reliable HMO composition data from less than a drop of milk — and from several hundred milk samples per week. This high-throughput approach has enabled us, together with our collaborators from around the world, to investigate which maternal genetic and environmental factors influence HMO composition as well as how HMO composition impacts health and development of infants and mothers.
In parallel to our analytical platform that enables HMO analyses for hypotheses-generating cohort studies, we developed a preparative platform to extract HMOs from pooled donor human milk for efficacy testing in suitable in vitro and in vivo models. We carefully ensure that our HMO preparations are very low in lactose, salt, and endotoxin contaminations, which might otherwise compromise research results. After initial efficacy testing of pooled HMOs, we apply a multi-dimensional chromatography approach for the stepwise fractionation of HMOs to determine structure-function relationships.
So far, this approach of combining association data from human cohort studies with efficacy data from in vitro and in vivo testing has taught us that sometimes specific HMOs are required to exert an effect that is highly structure-specific, dose-dependent, and likely receptor-mediated. Presenting Author: Carolyn M. The link between food and health is complex, particularly for the developing neonate, as the period after birth is the time when long term programming is occurring in the neurologic, immune and metabolic regulatory systems.
Breastfeeding is known to have short- and long-term benefits, and we have previously reported profound differences between breast-fed and formula-fed infants with respect to growth trajectory, immunological development, succession of the gut microbiome and metabolism that indicate development of unique metabolic phenotypes as a consequence of diet.
While the world health organization WHO advises that no other food other than human milk be introduced before 6 months of age, many infants are supplemented with formula or encouraged to consume complementary foods even before 4 months of age. To date, not much is known about the impact of other foods introduced during the first 6 months on the microbiome and metabolism. To investigate how complementary feeding affects the gut microbiome and overall host metabolism, fecal microbial ecology combined with comprehensive metabolic profiling of serum and feces were analyzed in breast- and formula- fed infants.
Our results highlight the need for a greater understanding of how the introduction of complementary foods shape immunity and metabolism in the developing neonate. Boner University of Verona — Department of Paediatrics. Background: Evidence of the mechanisms by which breastfeeding may improve allergic outcomes in early childhood has not been elucidated.
Objective: The aim of this study was to investigate relationships between levels of immune mediators in colostrum and mature milk and infant outcomes in the first year of life. Samples were analysed for immune components. Hepatocyte growth factor was protective for common cold incidence at 12 months. Whereas transforming growth factor 2 was associated with a higher risk of eczema. Conclusions: Data from this study suggests that differences in the individual immune composition of HM may have an influence on early life infant health outcomes.
Background: Our prior studies have shown that the Old Order Mennonite OOM population has a lower prevalence of allergic diseases and asthma than the general U. Objective: To determine if there is variation in breast milk immune composition between OOM, a low allergy risk population with long breastfeeding duration, and a control group from urban Rochester ROC.
Levels were compared between groups and across components using parametric and non-parametric methods to analyze the impact of various maternal exposures on milk composition. Additionally, clustering analysis was performed to identify clusters of cytokines, HMOs and specific IgA. Several bacteria-specific IgAs clustered together E. Conclusion: To our knowledge this is the first multi-component characterization of breast milk between mothers with different lifestyles. OOM milk is richer in many immune components, which together with longer breastfeeding duration may provide protection against allergic diseases.
Methods: Healthy children from the GUSTO cohort participated in repeated neurodevelopmental assessments between 6 and 54 months. Children fed directly at the breast performed better at the deferred imitation task at 6 months 0. Conclusions: These modest significant associations suggest that the nutritional content of breast milk may improve general child cognition, while feeding infants directly at the breast may benefit memory.
Presenting Author: Courtney L. Co-Authors: Michelle K. Background: Human milk, which harbors a diverse microbiome, is an early and consistent source of bacteria to infants. However, there are no data or inconsistent results on whether or how the human milk microbiome HMM is related to maternal characteristics age, parity, time postpartum, birth mode , household environments household composition, animal exposure , and social and behavioral patterns diversity of caregivers, intensity of maternal-infant interactions, and breastfeeding.
Methods: Human milk samples, demographic, and survey data were collected via standardized procedures. Results: HMM alpha diversity and the relative abundance of specific genera e. Conclusion: Our results identify multiple external influences on HMM diversity and community composition and provide initial evidence suggesting that HMM diversity and composition may reflect short- and long-term environmental exposures, possibly priming infants for the worlds in which they are reared.
Presenting Author: Melanie W. Background: Some infants have excessive weight gain during the first months of exclusive breastfeeding. HMO composition has been shown to be associated with infant growth and body composition. Results: All infants were included in the initial analysis.
Three mothers of HW and two mothers of NW infants were non-secretors.

Furthermore, percentage fat mass was negatively associated with diversity, evenness and LNH. Conclusions: These data support that HMO composition is related to both infant growth and body composition. Furthermore, they suggest that maternal BMI has an effect on HMO composition with potential impact on infant health and disease.
It has been known for several decades that maternal vitamin deficiencies can lead to low vitamin concentrations in milk. In , we suggested that in lactation micronutrients can be categorized into two groups. Group I micronutrients include all the B vitamins except folate, all the fat soluble vitamins, iodine, selenium, and probably choline. The concentration of these nutrients in milk is correlated with maternal status, and maternal deficiency can lead to infant depletion.
Conversely, maternal supplementation can increase their concentration in milk. There are fewer Type II micronutrients; folate, iron, minerals such as iron, copper and zinc, and calcium. Status or intake of the mother, including supplementation, does not affect levels of these nutrients in milk, so the mother may become more depleted during lactation while her infant is protected. There are still many questions around this general classification scheme, however.
How deficient does the mother have to be before milk concentrations fall low enough to adversely affect infant status? There are few data on this question for several reasons; reluctance to question the nutritional quality of milk, difficulties related to milk sampling and analysis protocols, and lack of reference values for milk micronutrients and infant status.
Similarly, data are sparse concerning the effects of maternal supplementation on milk micronutrients and infant status. For some vitamins, maternal supplementation during pregnancy may be most important so that the infant accumulates adequate stores in utero. For others, milk concentrations are responsive if the mother is supplemented during lactation, with the amount of response differing among vitamins. In this presentation we will share data on milk composition of women in many countries, some of whom were participants in maternal supplementation or food fortification studies.
The potential effects of maternal nutrient supplementation on human milk lipids, proteins and oligosaccharides HMOs are poorly understood. Women were randomly assigned to receive daily either: 1 iron-folic acid pregnancy ; 2 multiple micronutrients pregnancy and lactation ; or 3 LNS pregnancy and lactation. Breast milk samples were collected at 6 months postpartum and analyzed for milk fatty acids Oaks et al. Prostaglandins Leukot Essent Fatty Acids. J Nutr LNS increased breast milk alpha-linolenic acid levels in Ghana, but not Malawi.
There was no effect in either site on other milk fatty acids including DHA. Milk DHA levels were 2—3 times higher than the worldwide average, likely due to frequent fish consumption. This presentation will discuss other factors related to levels of these milk constituents, and their association with infant growth and inflammation.
Co-Authors: N. Moossavi, A. Becker, P. Mandhane, S. Turvey, T. Moraes, D. Lefebvre, P. Subbarao, M. Background: Among diverse mammalian species, maternal milk synthesis and nursing behavior can differ between male and female offspring. This has rarely been studied in humans. Objective: To assess whether breastfeeding differed by infant sex in two large prospective birth cohorts. Sex differences were evaluated by two-sided t-test and multivariable regression. Results: Breastfeeding initiation rates were Breastfeeding initiation did not differ between mothers of daughters versus sons.
These sex differences persisted in multivariable models, and were similar in magnitude to the effect estimates for established predictors of breastfeeding, such as parity, maternal overweight, post-secondary education, and method of delivery. Conclusions: Results from two distinct human cohorts suggest that mothers sustain lactation longer for daughters than for sons, consistent with evidence from other mammalian species. Further research is needed to explore the biological and social factors underlying these sex differences.
Meanwhile, it is important to consider infant sex in human milk and lactation research. Presenting Author: Nurul Husna M. Background: Breastfeeding involves complex biological and behavioral signaling between mothers and infants. In a randomized controlled trial we found that the use of relaxation therapy by breastfeeding mothers led to reduced maternal stress and increased infant sleep duration, with more optimal infant weight gain. Home visits HV were performed at 2—3 HV1 , HV2 and 12—14 HV3 weeks to measure maternal stress, breast milk composition and infant behavior and growth.
IG mothers were asked to listen daily to a relaxation tape for at least 2-weeks post-HV, including during a breastfeeding session at each HV. Cortisol, leptin, ghrelin and macronutrient content were measured in fore- and hindmilk samples. Conclusions: The relaxation intervention had effects on milk ghrelin, leptin and carbohydrate, raising the hypothesis that these may be biological signals mediating the observed intervention effects on infant behaviour and growth.
These results from an experimental study provide evidence on potential mother-infant signaling mechanisms for investigation in future studies. We hypothesized that the response of fully breastfeeding infants to HBV would differ as a function of both maternal and infant's vit D status as measured by circulating 25 OH D concentration.
Mothers were randomized to receive either vs. Conclusions: HBV titers of fully breastfeeding infants differed at 7 months of age by maternal vi tD treatment and not on the basis of infant vit D status. These findings suggest that the regulation of infant immune response to maternal signals differentially through her breast milk on the basis of maternal vit D status.
Background: The necessity of iodine supplementation in lactating mothers residing in countries with sustained salt iodization programs for iodine-sufficiency of breastfed infants remains unclear. Objective: The aim of the study was to investigate the effect of iodine supplementation on iodine status and growth parameters of lactating mothers and breastfed infants during the first year of infancy.
The primary outcomes were maternal and infant urinary iodine concentrations UICs , breast milk iodine concentrations BMICs , and infant growth parameters, measured at 1, 2, 4, 6, 9, and 12 months during routine health visits. Results: One hundred and eighty mother-newborn pairs participated between October and January Infant anthropometric measurements were similar between three arms of treatment group over the study period.
Objectives: To evaluate the effect of breastfeeding on long-term breast carcinoma, ovarian carcinoma, osteoporosis and type 2 diabetes mellitus and short-term lactational amenorrhoea, postpartum depression, postpartum weight change maternal health outcomes. Outcome estimates of odds ratios or relative risks or standardized mean differences were pooled. In cases of heterogeneity, subgroup analysis and meta-regression were explored. No conclusive evidence of an association between breastfeeding and bone mineral density was found. Exclusive breastfeeding and predominant breastfeeding were associated with longer duration of amenorrhoea.
Shorter duration of breastfeeding was associated with higher risk of postpartum depression. Evidence suggesting an association of breastfeeding with postpartum weight change was lacking. Conclusion: This review supports the hypothesis that breastfeeding is protective against breast and ovarian carcinoma, and exclusive breastfeeding and predominant breastfeeding increase the duration of lactational amenorrhoea.
There is evidence that breastfeeding reduces the risk of type 2 diabetes. However, an association between breastfeeding and bone mineral density or maternal depression or postpartum weight change was not evident. Background: Longer duration of breastfeeding has been associated with a lower risk of diabetes, breast and ovarian cancer, myocardial infarction and hypertension in women. Mexico has one of the lowest breastfeeding rates worldwide, therefore estimating the disease and economic burden of such rates is needed to influence public policy. Objective: Quantify the lifetime excess cases of maternal health outcomes, premature death, DALYs, direct costs and indirect costs attributable to suboptimal breastfeeding practices, using rates in Mexico in Results: The suboptimal scenario was associated with 5, more cases of ALL diseases, 1, additional premature deaths and 66, DALYs as well as Conclusions: Findings suggest that investments in strategies to enable more women to optimally breastfeed could result in important health and cost savings.
Breastfeeding has marked effects on maternal reproductive hormone levels and consistent evidence indicates that it reduces maternal risk of breast cancer. However, its association with other hormonally-related cancers such as endometrial and ovarian cancers is much less clear. Indeed, in its Continuous Update Project, the World Cancer Research Fund found there was insufficient evidence to evaluate whether there was an association with endometrial cancer and that evidence for an association with ovarian cancer was limited but suggestive of a decrease in risk We have conducted case-control analyses and pooled analyses of case-control and cohort studies to examine these relationships.
Using our results and those from the literature we have also calculated the proportions of ovarian and endometrial cancers that may be attributed to a lack of breastfeeding. Our ovarian cancer studies showed similarly protective associations with breastfeeding, results consistent with most, although not all, recent findings.
Our results therefore suggest that in addition to established benefits for babies, supporting women to commence and continue breastfeeding for recommended periods could also contribute to the prevention of these increasingly common cancers. Presenting Author: Julie P. Background: Breastfeeding supports child development through complex mechanisms that are not well understood. Numerous studies have compared how well breastfeeding and non-breastfeeding mothers interact with their child, but few examine how much interaction occurs.
Maternal sleep hours may be associated with nurturing care time. Methods: The study collected weekly time use data from mothers of infants aged 3—9 months recruited via mother's and baby groups, infant health clinics, and childcare services. Participants used an electronic device to record their hour time use for 7 days. Sociodemographic and feeding status data were collected by questionnaire.
Statistical analysis used linear mixed modeling and residual maximum likelihood analysis. Results: Breastfeeding and non-breastfeeding mothers had broadly similar socioeconomic and demographic characteristics. Breastfeeding was associated with more mother—child interaction time, a difference only partially explained by maternal employment hours or other interactive care activities. Older age of infant was associated with reduced maternal sleep hours. Conclusions: This study presents data suggesting that lactating mothers spent significantly more hours weekly on milk feeding and on carrying, holding, or soothing their infant than non-lactating mothers; and on providing childcare.
Understanding mechanisms by which child mental health and development benefits from breastfeeding and nurturing care may have important implications for policies and intervention strategies. Time pressures on mothers of older infants may have implications for maternal sleep, health and wellbeing. Background: Maternal metabolic diseases during pregnancy influence breast milk composition of nutrients and bioactive factors.
Lactational metabolic programming from altered breast milk composition is hypothesized to contribute to the risk of childhood obesity. Milk microRNA profile alterations may mediate regulation of early infant metabolism. Methods: Breast milk samples were collected at 2 weeks postpartum from a total of 36 mothers with maternal obesity 5 , gestational diabetes 5 , polycystic ovary syndrome 5 , and healthy controls 21 through a prospective observational cohort study of mother-baby dyads at the University of Michigan.
Results: A total of microRNAs were identified in the 36 milk samples. Potential actions of these microRNAs include regulation of adipocyte proliferation, fatty acid synthesis, glucose uptake, and potential biomarkers for childhood obesity based on current microRNA literature. Conclusions: The microRNA profile in human milk is influenced by maternal metabolic disease. Additional infant cohort outcome data is needed to determine potential clinical significance of microRNAs in metabolic programming. Co-Authors: Pamela D.
Background: Breast milk provides nutrients, immune factors and other bioactive compounds, including cortisol, for the adequate growth and development of the infant. Environmental and maternal factors modify the composition of this complex and dynamic biological fluid. Objective: To characterize the immunological profile and cortisol concentration in breast milk, and to assess its potential relationship with maternal postnatal psychosocial distress during the first months postpartum.
Methods: Fifty-nine mothers collected breast milk samples at 2, 6 and 12 weeks postpartum and filled in mood questionnaires on experienced stress, anxiety and depression at 6 weeks postpartum. Immune factors were quantified by magnetic beads-based multiplex immunoassays, and cortisol levels by liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry. Results: The concentration of most immunological factors decreased over time, especially between week 2 and 6 postpartum, while that of cortisol increased.
There were no relevant correlations between immune factors and cortisol concentrations in milk. Psychosocial distress did not correlate with any immune compound found in milk but it was positively related to milk cortisol concentration. Conclusions: Globally, the content of most immune components in breast milk decreases during lactation and they are not related to maternal psychosocial distress. In contrast, high maternal psychosocial distress experienced during breastfeeding is associated to high milk cortisol concentration.
Mother's own milk MOM reduces the risk of complications of prematurity during and after neonatal hospitalization. However, mothers of premature, very low birthweight infants produce lower MOM volumes than mothers who breastfeed healthy term infants. Etiologies of this disparity include biological and behavioral components. In addition, potentially most importantly, mothers of very preterm infants are breast pump-dependent for lactation initiation, a critical window when the breast is programmed for long-term MOM synthesis. However, optimal pumping behaviors are challenging when mothers of sick infants are still ill themselves in the post-partum period.
In this preterm population, it is well known that macronutrient composition, especially protein levels in early MOM, differs from term mothers, but seems relatively unaffected by maternal nutritional status or diet. However, new research suggests maternal diet and factors such as obesity may significantly affect other aspects of MOM, from fatty acid, hormone, and cytokine profiles to human milk oligosaccharides that may affect long-term infant health. However, preterm-specific data is lacking, making the study of maternal influence on MOM composition in this vulnerable population a research priority.
Mother's own milk MOM reduces the risk of potentially preventable complications of prematurity and their associated costs in VLBW infants, including necrotizing enterocolitis NEC , late onset sepsis sepsis , bronchopulmonary dysplasia BPD , neurodevelopmental problems and rehospitalization.
This protection is provided by myriad components that function synergistically via anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, immunomodulatory, growth-promoting, neuroprotective and gut-colonizing mechanisms. Many components are concentrated most highly in early lactation MOM and in MOM produced by the immature mammary gland following premature birth. When MOM is unavailable, donor human milk DHM is the recommended global alternative, in part because bovine formulas upregulate inflammation and oxidative stress and contribute to gut dysbiosis.
Presenting Author: Deborah L. Hospitalized infants with elevated nutritional requirements or fluid restriction, may require their mother's milk to be nutrient-enriched. In this talk, the evidence for routine nutrient fortification of mother's milk on short and long term health outcomes will be discussed and gaps in knowledge identified. The challenges associated with human milk nutrient fortification including variability in mother's milk and donor milk composition, variability in the nutritional requirements of hospitalized infants and adherence of fat to feeding tubes will be discussed as will potential solutions.
Finally the evidence in support of the use of hydrolyzed bovine-based, human milk-based fortifiers over intact bovine-protein fortifiers will presented. Secondary outcomes from the trial including a dichotomous mortality and morbidity index, fecal calprotectin e. For sick and vulnerable newborns, evidence shows that those that receive human milk early and exclusively, are more likely to survive.
Currently, over 35 countries have established systems to provide DHM through HMB, including a number in low- and middle-income countries such as Brazil and Vietnam. The following are actions that policy makers can take to strengthen systems to increase access to and intake of human milk for sick and vulnerable newborns: 1 Commit to developing, improving, and enforcing policies and legislation that protect, promote, and support the use of human milk for all newborns; 2 Invest in capacity-building in the optimal feeding of premature, sick and vulnerable newborns; 3 Integrate the provision of DHM from HMB into national strategies and policies as part of a comprehensive approach for newborn care; 4 Establish culturally appropriate national standards for establishing HMB, monitoring distribution and quality control of DHM, and ensuring equitable access to donor human milk; and 5 Ensure that policies and programs to increase access to and intake of DHM do not undermine breastfeeding.
Presenting Author: Sarah N. Co-Authors: Carol L. Background: Preterm birth presents a barrier to breastfeeding and often requires long-term maternal breast pumping and complicated regimens. A post-hospital discharge HD intervention of home hospital grade breast pump, baby weigh scale and pediatric clinic lactation counseling was developed to support mother's goal to sustain milk post-HD.
Methods: Fourteen pediatric clinics in 5 counties in South Carolina were randomized to provide lactation support or serve as control. Results were analyzed by quantitative and qualitative methods. Further analysis will evaluate the effect of the intervention components as well as maternal self-efficacy and attitudes regarding support. Background: Early initiation of milk expression within one hour following delivery has been shown to increase milk production in mothers of very low birth weight VLBW infants.
Objective: The aim of this QI project is to decrease the mean timing to first pumping for mothers of VLBW infants from 12 hours to 2 hours by standardizing the postpartum workflow by July Methods: An interdisciplinary obstetric-neonatal team used QI tools to identify barriers to early pumping initiation and develop a key driver diagram underscoring the following interventions.
Prior to delivery: centralizing supplies for pumping, educating mothers Neonatology consults and a video , and scripting nursing support. Intrapartum: assigned clinician roles to initiate pumping immediately after delivery, excluding mothers that receive general anesthesia. Postpartum: an electronic medical record field was created for easy charting of pumping initiation. Measures included: outcome- time to first pump, process- charting compliance, and balancing- postpartum event. Results: The xmr chart shows that the mean time to pumping initiation decreased from 12 hours to 2. The pre versus post implementation medians were 3.
Conclusions: QI methods significantly improved timing of pumping initiation. Ongoing data collection will evaluate impact on milk volume and donor milk usage. Co-Authors: Lisa K. Scheel, Andreas W. Background: Human mammary epithelial cells undergo major changes within the adult gland during key stages of development including pregnancy, lactation and subsequent involution. Previously, the plasticity of single resting non-pregnancy, non-lactating human mammary epithelial cells isolated from esthetic breast mammoplasties was interrogated by the use of a mammary organoid assay.
Mammary epithelial cells cultured under floating collagen gel conditions yield complex three-dimensional mammary organoids that resemble the morphological and cellular organization of the resting mammary gland Linnemann et al.
