Effect of bottles, cups, and dummies on breast feeding in preterm infants: a randomised controlled trial
TLDR
Dummies do not affect breast feeding in preterm infants and cup feeding significantly increases the likelihood that the baby will be fully breast fed at discharge home, but has no effect on any breast feeding and increases the length of hospital stay. Expand
Neurodevelopmental Outcomes of Preterm Infants Fed High-Dose Docosahexaenoic Acid
TLDR
Although ingestion of a high-DHA dose does not increase the MDI scores of all preterm infants born before 33 weeks, it was associated with an increase ofMDI scores among girls, and future trials with higher doses should be considered. Expand
Effect of increasing protein content of human milk fortifier on growth in preterm infants born at <31 wk gestation: a randomized controlled trial.
TLDR
A higher protein intake results in less growth faltering in human milk-fed preterm infants and it is possible that a higher-protein fortifier than used in this study is needed. Expand
An evaluation of the satisfaction of midwives' working in midwifery group practice.
TLDR
Examining changes in midwives' attitudes to their professional role following the introduction of midwifery group practice (MGP), a positive change in attitudes to professional role was reflected in all sub-scales in the period between start-up and 18 months later; a reduction in scores occurred in Round 3. Expand
Relaxation techniques for pain management in labour.
TLDR
The effects of mind-body relaxation techniques for pain management in labour on maternal and neonatal well-being during and after labour were examined and found that relaxation compared to usual care provided lowered the intensity of pain. Expand
High-Dose Docosahexaenoic Acid Supplementation of Preterm Infants: Respiratory and Allergy Outcomes
TLDR
DHA supplementation for infants of <33 weeks' gestation reduced the incidence of bronchopulmonary dysplasia in boys and in all infants with a birth weight of <1250 g and reduced the probability of reported hay fever in boys at either 12 or 18 months. Expand
Impact of fatty acid status on growth and neurobehavioural development in humans.
TLDR
Maternal n-3 LCPUFA supplementation during pregnancy has consistently resulted in modest increases in birth size, and the most recent study suggests that this is also true from women from low-income environments, although the effect of maternal supplementation on global neurobehavioural outcomes for children born at term remains unclear. Expand
A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis of Human Milk Feeding and Morbidity in Very Low Birth Weight Infants
TLDR
HM provided a clear protective effect against NEC, with an approximate 4% reduction in incidence, and any volume of HM is better than EPTF, and the higher the dose the greater the protection. Expand
Neurodevelopmental outcomes of preterm infants fed high-dose docosahexaenoic acid: a randomized controlled trial.
TLDR
A DHA dose of approximately 1% total fatty acids in early life did not increase MDi scores of preterm infants overall born earlier than 33 weeks but did improve the MDI scores of girls. Expand
Complementary and alternative therapies for pain management in labour.
TLDR
Acupuncture and hypnosis may be beneficial for the management of pain during labour and the outcome measures were maternal satisfaction, use of pharmacological pain relief and maternal and neonatal adverse outcomes. Expand
