Happy World Breastfeeding Week!

World Breastfeeding Week (WBW) is an annual celebration of the role of lactation in our homes, our communities, and the world. The 2017 theme is Sustaining Breastfeeding Together. Join International Lactation Consultant Association® (ILCA®) and World Alliance for Breastfeeding Action (WABA) in observing WBW 1-7 August 2017.

This year’s theme celebrates working together for the common good, which produces sustainable results greater than the sum of our individual efforts. Evidence of the benefits of breastfeeding is already available to us. We know that breastfeeding aids the survival of infants and helps them thrive, provides long-term health benefits for women, yields economic benefits, and enhances the well-being of all. The challenge for champions of breastfeeding is to translate globally agreed policies into positive action in our communities.

In September 2015, world leaders committed to 17 goals aimed at ending poverty, protecting the planet, and ensuring prosperity. These goals are known as the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Breastfeeding and Sustainable development are connected to the 17 SDGs. These goals can be divided into four themes: Nutrition, Food Security, and Poverty Reduction; Survival, Health, and Well-Being; Environment and Climate Change; and Women’s Productivity and Employment. For more information on these connections, see this Lactation Matters post from our 2016 celebration.

Breastfeeding and Maternal Responsiveness

Breastfeeding and Maternal Responsiveness Literature Review, from Advances in Nutrition

The journal Advances in Nutrition has released an article entitled, “Associations between Breastfeeding and Maternal Responsiveness: A Systematic Review of the Literature.” The systematic review synthesizes the accumulating bodies of evidence aimed at understanding associations between mother’s feeding experiences and responsive feeding in an attempt to clarify the nature of associations between feeding mode and responsive feeding. Cross-sectional observational studies consistently reported greater responsiveness among breastfeeding mothers than among formula-/bottle-feeding mothers. In addition, longitudinal studies showed that longer breastfeeding durations predicted lower use of nonresponsive feeding practices during later childhood, and some, but not all, found that breastfeeding mothers showed greater increases in responsiveness across infancy than did formula-/bottle-feeding mothers. However, a limited number of longitudinal studies also reported that greater responsiveness during early infancy predicted longer breastfeeding durations. In sum, although there is consistent evidence for an association between breastfeeding and responsive feeding, more research is needed to better understand the mechanisms underlying this association.
