The Milk Growth and Microbiota Study

In the U.S., 8% of all births occur between 34 0/7 and 36 6/7 weeks gestation and are regarded as late preterm birth. Compared to term newborns, late preterm newborns have a much higher risk of morbidity and mortality, in part because of difficulty establishing feeding and growth. Breastfeeding optimizes ...

Phase N/A

Human Milk and Infant Intestinal Microbiome Study

This study will explore the effects of skin-to-skin contact (SSC) between mothers and their babies on the infant intestinal microbiome, the maternal skin microbiome and the breast milk microbiome. This will be accomplished by administering an intervention education session to one group and a placebo education session to the second ...

Phase N/A

Probiotics and Early Microbial Contact in Preterm Neonates

Probiotics are live microbes which, when administered in sufficient amounts, confer a health benefit to the host. According to recent clinical trials, administration of probiotics to very low birth weight infants significantly reduces overall mortality and risk of necrotizing enterocolitis, a devastating inflammatory intestinal disease. The investigators have previously demonstrated ...

Phase N/A

The LATCHING Pilot Project

The purpose of this study is to learn if group-based phone counseling is effective for increasing breastfeeding rates, reducing the early introduction of solids and increasing maternal weight loss after pregnancy.

Breastfeeding Support and Weight Management for Black Women

Excessive pregnancy-related weight retention is an important determinant of obesity and is more common among African American women. At the same time, breastfeeding, which has been recommended as a strategy to decrease weight retention is lowest among African American women. This racial disparity in breastfeeding may partly explain the disparity ...

Mother's Milk Messaging: Evaluation of a Bilingual APP to Support Initiation and Exclusive Breastfeeding in New Mothers

Women of child-bearing age are in the generation most likely to use texting to communicate, and most own a cellular phone, and that cell phones have been demonstrated to be efficacious in increasing Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) medication compliance and smoking cessation, and in improving diabetes management, the investigators consider ...

Is it Possible to Extend the Duration of Breastfeeding to the Premature Infant? - a Prospectivt Study

The purpose of this project, which consists of 3 studies, is to investigate whether insufficient protein in breastmilk and / or inadequate intra oral vacuum of the infant can explain early breastfeeding cessation in the premature infant. Furthermore to test whether the breastfeeding period may be extended by oral stimulation. ...

Phase N/A

Human Milk Composition in Indian Mothers

The study is a 5-month prospective observational cohort study. Approximately 258 mother-infant pairs in 33-42 weeks of pregnancy will be recruited. Eligibility assessment will be done for the mother at enrolment and for the mother-infant pair at delivery. Based on the recorded anthropometric data and BMI (kg/m2) calculated based on ...

Phase N/A

Facilitating Skin-to-Skin Contact In the Postnatal Period

Skin-to-skin contact is used as part of a package of Kangaroo Mother Care across the world. This has been demonstrated to reduce neonatal morbidity, mortality, and inpatient stays for low birth weight and preterm infants (Charpak and Ruiz 2016). This study examines the effect a facilitating garment, the Snuby has ...

Phase N/A

The Effect of Early Versus Traditional Follow-Up on Breastfeeding Rates at 6 Months

This study is a non-blinded randomized controlled trial with intent to treat analysis intended to determine whether early (2-3 weeks postpartum-experimental arm) versus traditional (6-8 weeks postpartum-control arm) follow up increases breastfeeding rates at 6 months' postpartum. For purposes of this study, breastfeeding will be defined as any breast milk ...
