Résumé : "Objective: To explore Chinese adults’ perceptions and attitudes toward breastfeeding in public places.
Materials and Methods: This was a web-based survey including 10 items on breastfeeding participants (N = 2,021) who were recruited by convenience sampling.
Results: Almost 95% believed that public places should have lactation rooms, 86% thought it was acceptable for mothers to breastfeed in this location, and 65% of respondents agreed that it was acceptable for mothers to breastfeed in public. Though 47% believed that viewing women breastfeeding in public was embarrassing, more than 80% felt that breastfeeding in public was appropriate and decent and did not violate social morality. More than 90% of respondents approved of policies supporting breastfeeding in public. Women, married people, those who had children, had some knowledge about breastfeeding, or had the experience of viewing women breastfeeding in public were more likely to hold positive perceptions and attitudes toward breastfeeding in public places.
Conclusions: Prior experience and knowledge about breastfeeding have a great influence on people's perceptions and attitudes toward breastfeeding in public, so education about breastfeeding is very important. Breastfeeding education should not only include the techniques of breastfeeding practices but also include information policies that support breastfeeding in public, including the importance of lactation rooms."

Résumé : "Background: Approximately one in five Western women who breastfeed are likely to experience acute mastitis. This study investigated the incidence and risk factors of acute mastitis in a cohort of Iranian women.
Subjects and Methods: Subjects were 672 participants of the Shiraz Infant Feeding Study conducted between June 2014 and March 2015. Mothers were recruited from the maternity ward and followed up at 1, 3, 4, and 6 months postpartum to obtain information on their breastfeeding practices and experiences. The occurrence of acute mastitis in the first 26 weeks postpartum was self-reported and the occurrence of acute mastitis in the first 4 weeks and between 5 and 12 weeks postpartum was treated as separate outcomes. The risk factors for acute mastitis were explored using multivariable logistic regression analysis.
Results: In total, 130 mothers (19.3%, 95% confidence interval: 16.3–22.3%) experienced at least one episode of acute mastitis. Having expressed breast milk and use of a pacifier were significantly associated with acute mastitis in both the first 4 weeks and between 5 and 12 weeks postpartum. Persistent problems with cracked or sore nipples, or engorged breasts, and a reduction in breastfeeding were associated with acute mastitis between 5 and 12 weeks.
Conclusions: The incidence of acute mastitis experienced by this cohort of Iranian women is similar to that reported for women in Western countries. The risk factors of acute mastitis identified in this study are potentially modifiable and could be prevented or ameliorated with adequate support and anticipatory guidance provided in the early postpartum period."
