Résumé : BACKGROUND: Strong recommandations have been made for exclusive breastfeeding of infants for the first 6 months of life, with continuations throughout the first year. In an attempt to optimize support for breastfeeding, particular barriers in populations with decreased rates need to be analysed.
OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to determine if participation in the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, parents or other caregivers, and participation in early skin-to-skin contact after birth are associated with the decision to breastfeed or bottle feed among this adolescent population.
METHODS: A retrospective chart review of 457 adolescent patients who delivered January 2010 through May 2013 at the University of Louisville Hospital was conducted. Nursing documentation was used to determine the patient's intention to breastfeed or bottle feed, participation in WIC, involvement of the infant's father, involvement of the patient's parents, and participation in early skin-to-skin contact after delivery. These factors were compared using Fisher exact test.
RESULTS: Three hundred one adolescents reported a plan to breastfeed (65.9%) and 156 reported a plan to bottle feed (34.1%) when questioned pre-delivery. There was no significant difference between the groups with respect to WIC participation or involvement of the infant's father. The bottle-feeding group had a significantly higher percentage who reported parental early skin-to-skin contact after birth (74.5% vs 58.1%, P=.0064).
CONCLUSION: Involvement of the adolescent mothers' parents or caregivers was associated with the decision to bottle fed. Participation in early skin-to-skin contact after birth was associated with the decision to breastfeed. [Résumé de l'auteur]
