Résumé : "Background:
Over the past 2 decades, southern states in the United States have recorded the lowest breastfeeding rates. It is not known whether awareness of breastfeeding laws and provision of resources play any role in their breastfeeding practices.
The aims were (a) to describe awareness of breastfeeding laws and provisions by students and employees of institutions of higher learning in the state of Georgia, (b) to describe awareness by race and ethnicity, and (c) to determine factors associated with awareness of breastfeeding laws and provisions among students and employees within Georgia institutions of higher learning.
A cross-sectional online survey of students (n = 1,923) and employees (n = 1,311) associated with five institutions within the University System of Georgia (N = 3,271) was completed. Convenience sampling was used. Data were collected through Qualtrics. Chi-square test was used to examine differences between groups, while logistic regression was used to examine associations.
Participants included 33.3% undergraduate, 26.2% graduate students, 24.6% staff, 14.2% faculty, and 1.7% administrators. Over two thirds were female and white. Almost one third reported having a child or children. Awareness of breastfeeding laws and provisions was very low among respondents, with 26.6 and 9.6% aware of federal and state provisions, respectively. While less than 10% were familiar with the Baby Friendly Hospital Initiative program, 52.6% reported their institution provides a supportive environment for breastfeeding. Being a student and being a minority were negatively associated with awareness of laws and provisions that support breastfeeding.
The need for focused efforts on increasing awareness of legislative and institutional provisions and support for breastfeeding exists." [Résumé de l'auteur]

Index. décimale : PE_ Résumé : The authors analyzed data from a trial assessing the efficacy of breastfeeding peer counseling (PC) for increasing exclusive breastfeeding (EBF) to (1) examine whether different ethnic groups responded differently to the intervention and (2) document the determinants of EBF. At 2 months postpartum, the prevalence of EBF in the intervention group was 11.4% among Puerto Ricans compared to 44.4% among non-Puerto Ricans (P = .008). Multivariate logistic regression analyses showed that women who had the intention prenatally to engage in EBF were more likely to do so and those whose mothers lived in the United States were less likely to engage in EBF at hospital discharge. At 2 months postpartum, mothers who were breastfed as children were more likely to engage in EBF, whereas non-Puerto Ricans had a significantly greater response to the intervention than Puerto Ricans (odds ratio, 6.40; 95% confidence interval, 1.45-28.33). There is a need for further studies to determine why different ethnic groups respond differently to EBF promotion interventions. Permalink :

Note de contenu : "Background: Lack of breastfeeding support is a common barrier reported by African American mothers, whose breastfeeding rates remain significantly below the national average. Despite mothers’ reported use of social network sites to access support on topics relating to child rearing, few studies have examined their use to exchange breastfeeding support.
Research aims: To describe (1) the experiences of African American mothers who participate in breastfeeding support groups on Facebook and (2) the breastfeeding beliefs, practices, and outcomes for this population of mothers."
