Post a reply: Relactation retention data

Use of en-net is subject to the Terms and Conditions.

WHO recommends that infants below 6 months with lactation failure and diagnosed with severe acute malnutrition (SAM) should undergo intensive re-lactation during admission. Studies have demonstrated efficacy of using supplementary suckling technique in relactation i.e. >50% infants having achieved exclusive breastfeeding at the point of discharge. Is anyone aware of studies or has data that demonstrate the success of breastfeeding retention weeks after discharge (with or without additional breastfeeding support)?
