Barriers to Breastfeeding: Supporting Initiation and Continuation of Breastfeeding

Nutrition During Pregnancy and Lactation: Exploring New Evidence: Proceedings of a Workshop. Genetic and Physiological Factors Affecting Human Milk Production and Composition. HMOs, a structurally complex and diverse group of glycans, represent the third most abundant component in human milk right after lactose and lipids (excluding water) [115].

Genetic and Physiological Factors Affecting Human Milk Production and Composition

HMOs are thought to participate in numerous functions including metabolism, probiotic and prebiotic, antimicrobial, modulation of infant intestinal epithelial cell responses, immune response, nutritional effects, as well as brain development [70,115,116,117,118,119]. Like blood groups, the composition of HMOs depends on the expression of certain glycosyltransferases. On the basis of the secretor (Se) and Le blood group system, which is determined by the activity of two gene loci encoding for the α1-2-fucoslyltransferase FUT2 (encoded by the Se gene) and the α1-3/4-fucosyltransferase FUT3 (encoded by the Le gene), four milk groups were assigned: Le-positive secretors (Se+Le+), Le-negative secretors (Se+Le−), Le-positive non-secretors (Se−Le+), and Le-negative non-secretors (Se−Le−) [116].

Optimal nutrition in lactating women and its effect on later health of offspring: A systematic review of current evidence and recommendations (EarlyNutrition project): Critical Reviews in Food Science and Nutrition: Vol 57, No 18. Long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acid supplementation during lactation The seven systematic reviews enclosed a total of 10 publications (describing outcomes of five randomized trials), including the three RCTs we identified.

The remaining seven publications were published before the year 2010, and were therefore not individually identified by our search (Helland et al., 2001 Helland, I. Position of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics: Promoting and Supporting Breastfeeding. For example, preterm infants are at increased risk of developing necrotizing enterocolitis compared with term infants, and human milk feedings reduce the incidence.9 Studies show an absolute difference of 5% in the risk of necrotizing enterocolitis when comparing outcomes between preterm infants receiving human milk or a substitute.

This is considered a meaningful clinical difference due to the high case-fatality rate of necrotizing enterocolitis.26 Milk from the infant’s own mother contains bioactive components and immunomodulatory factors, and is the first choice for feeding preterm infants.9, 29 Although mother’s own milk is desirable, donor milk is recommended when mother’s own milk is not available9, 29 (use of donor milk is expanded upon in the practice paper2).

Maternal Diet and Nutrient Requirements in Pregnancy and Breastfeeding. An Italian Consensus Document. During pregnancy, micronutrient requirements increase more than those of macronutrients, and inadequate intakes (and, thus, a low nutritional quality of the diet) can have significant consequences for both the mother and the developing fetus.

In particular, there is evidence to support the physiologic role played by selected minerals and vitamins [12,32]. 3.1. Iron Involved in numerous enzymatic processes, iron (the foremost constituent of hemoglobin, myoglobin and various enzymes) plays essential roles in the transfer of oxygen to tissues. Iron deficiency causes anemia, a very common condition worldwide, affecting 22% of women of childbearing age in Europe and as much as 50% in developing countries [33]. Meat and fish, but also legumes and green leafy vegetables are the main dietary sources of iron.

During pregnancy, iron requirement progressively increases until the third month, in parallel with the accumulation in fetal tissues. Table 2. 3.2. 3.3. 3.4. Table 3. 3.5. USPSTF Recommendation: Interventions to Support Breastfeeding. Importance There is convincing evidence that breastfeeding provides substantial health benefits for children. However, nearly half of all US mothers who initially breastfeed stop doing so by 6 months, and there are significant disparities in breastfeeding rates among younger mothers and in disadvantaged communities.

Objective To update the 2008 US Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) recommendation on primary care interventions to promote breastfeeding. Evidence Review The USPSTF reviewed the evidence on the effectiveness of interventions to support breastfeeding on breastfeeding initiation, duration, and exclusivity. The USPSTF also briefly reviewed the literature on the effects of these interventions on child and maternal health outcomes. Including information for breastfeeding mothers. World Breastfeeding Week.
