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: Despite strong evidence for the health benefits of breastfeeding, many mothers cannot continue breastfeeding their infants upon their return to work or school. Students are especially affected by this transition because they do not have legal protection that requires designated lactation space or time to express milk to be provided by places of education. Furthermore, limited research has been completed that specifically addresses the return to school of mothers who are students.
Materials and Methods: One hundred fifty-seven colleges and universities from across the United States were contacted through telephone and/or e-mail, and their websites were searched to assess the support they offer for lactating students. The presence of a formal policy for lactating students and designated lactation rooms, accessible to students, were the key measures.
Results: Information was gathered from 88.53% (n = 139) of the colleges and universities. A mere 3.6% (n = 5) had an official policy for lactating students and/or had the lactation spaces mentioned in the student handbook. However, more than half of the colleges and universities (54.68%; n = 76) had designated lactation spaces accessible to their students.
Conclusion: The vast majority of the sample did not have a policy for lactating students, and almost half of the schools did not have designated space for milk expression accessible to students. Lactating students will likely encounter challenges in simultaneously sustaining breastfeeding and meeting their educational goals in these contexts. To meet the recommendation of the American Academy of Pediatrics of 6 months of exclusive breastfeeding and continued breastfeeding for 1 year or more, American colleges and universities must establish not only designated spaces for milk expression but also policies to support lactating students.

Mots-clés : [article de synthèse], [revue systématique] Résumé : "Background: Many mothers experience barriers to maintaining a breastfeeding relationship with their infants upon returning to work and, consequently, terminate breastfeeding earlier than recommended or intended. As such, employers are in a unique position to help further increase breastfeeding rates, durations, and exclusivity.
Objective: The purpose of this review is to examine the literature regarding employer-based programs, policies, and interventions to support breastfeeding among working mothers.
Materials and Methods: A systematic literature search was conducted for peer-reviewed articles published before April 2016. Studies were included if they focused on workplace-based lactation/breastfeeding support programs, policies, or interventions to promote breastfeeding among employees. For inclusion, articles must have measured at least one outcome, such as breastfeeding duration, breastfeeding exclusivity, or employee satisfaction.
Results: Twenty-two articles were included, representing 10 different countries and both public- and private-sector employers, including governmental offices, schools, hospitals, manufacturing/industrial companies, and financial settings, among others. Providing a lactation space was the most common employer-based support accommodation studied, followed by breastfeeding breaks and comprehensive lactation support programs. The majority of studies analyzing these three support types found at least one positive breastfeeding and/or nonbreastfeeding outcome.
Conclusions: This review suggests that maintaining breastfeeding while working is not only possible but also more likely when employers provide the supports that women need to do so. Although some employers may have more extensive breastfeeding support policies and practices than others, all employers can implement a breastfeeding support program that fits their company's budget and resources."

Mots-clés : workplace Résumé : "Popular knowledge is that the United States has a major problem in supporting mothers who wish to continue with exclusive breastfeeding at least for 3 months, let alone for the recommended 6 months. The absence of paid maternity leave, except for rare state programs (such as in New York, California, New Jersey, and Rhode Island, which have enacted programs to provide partial pay to workers taking time off to bond with a new child), is most likely “a” if not “the” major variable that results in the disappointing statistics. As such, for want of a better solution, the emphasis has been on the development of employer-based programs that provide proper designated clean facilities and adequate release time during the work hours to allow for pumping and storing mother's own milk. Such programs, in turn, result in the availability of adequate volumes of mother's milk and thus facilitate an infant being at least nourished exclusively by human milk while not exclusively breastfeeding."

Titre : National Survey of Convention Centers’ Lactation Facilities Type de document : texte imprimé Auteurs : Kristin Koo, Auteur ; Diane L. Spatz, Auteur Année de publication : 2016 Article en page(s) : pp.735-739 Langues : Anglais (eng) Catégories : Convention
Résumé : Background: There is little published about lactation accommodations in public spaces.
Objective: The objective of this study was to determine what lactation facilities, if any, convention centers in the United
States are providing to accommodate breastfeeding moms.
Methods: A list of national convention centers was collected from meetings-conventions.com and recorded in an Excel
spreadsheet, with the name of the center, total meeting square feet, number of meeting rooms, address, and telephone
number. Each convention center was contacted by phone and administered the survey. Questions were asked as to what
type of lactation accommodations were available, if any.
Results: A response rate of 78.7% (326 of 414 convention centers) was achieved. A mere 5.5% reported permanently designated
lactation rooms, whereas 32% made temporary accommodations. While the phone survey was conducted, a wide variety of
qualitative responses were provided by participants, demonstrating an overall lack of awareness of this as a public health issue.
Conclusion: Return to work and breastfeeding in public are commonly reported barriers to breastfeeding. This survey
clearly demonstrates a lack of accommodations in very public areas that are visited by women on a regular basis. Policy
changes are necessary so all women can be supported in reaching their personal breastfeeding goals. [Résumé de l'auteur]
