Objectives for our session l.jpg

Objectives for our session:

  • Understand the relationship between human milk and the rates of necrotizing enterocolitis infections

  • Identify the elements that promote the use of human milk in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit

  • Practice motivational interviewing skills used for supporting health behavior changes


Why should premature infants be fed their mother s milk l.jpg

Why should premature infants be fed their mother’s milk?

  • Because they derive the same benefits that term infants derive

  • Because, in addition, premature infants derive special, strong benefits


Health benefits all infants associated with mother s milk use l.jpg

Health benefits (all infants) associated with mother’s milk use

Long term

  • Asthma

  • Obesity

  • Diabetes type 1 and 2

  • Childhood leukemia

  • CV risk factors (cholesterol, blood pressure)

  • Intelligence

    Ip et al. 2007

Why should premature infants be fed mother’s milk?

Short term

  • Acute otitis media

  • Gastroenteritis

  • Severe lower respiratory tract infection

  • Atopic dermatitis

  • SIDS

    Ip et al. 2007


Mother s milk and the infant s immune system l.jpg

Mother’s milk and the infant’s immune system

Breast milk complements and stimulates the immature immune system of the infant, and protects the infant while the immune system is getting up to speed

The premature infant’s immune system is particularly immature (hence the high susceptibility to infection) and strong protection human milk provides for the premature infant

Sepsis

El-Mohandes et al., 1997

Hylander et al., 1998

Furman et al., 2003

Schanler et al., 2005 (not for donor milk)

Sepsis + NEC

Schanler et al., 1999

Meinzen-Derr et al., 2008


Meinzen derr et al for nrn j perinatology 2009 29 57 62 l.jpg

Meinzen-Derr et al. for NRNJ Perinatology 2009;29:57-62

  • The likelihood of NEC or death after 14 days was decreased by a factor of 0.83 (CI 0.72-0.96) for each 10% increase in the proportion of total intake as human milk


How much does nec cost l.jpg

HOW MUCH DOES NEC COST?

  • Hospital charges for a NEC infection are estimated at $200,000 per survivor Bisquera, JA et al PEDIATRICS Vol. 109 No. 3 March 2002, pp. 423-428.

  • WOW….one case of NEC is expensive not to mention painful for the baby!!!!!!!


Human milk is better tolerated than formula l.jpg

Human milk is better “tolerated” than formula

Faster gastric emptying =shorter gastric half-emptying time Cavell et al., 1981 HM 48 min vs Form 78 min

Ewer et al., 1994: HM 36 min vs Form 72 min

Van den Driessche et al.,1999:

HM 47 min vs Form 65 min

“Full feeds more quickly” (Simmer et al., 1997)

Less GE reflux with HM than formula (Peter et al., 2002)


Nicu targets recommended by vermont oxford network l.jpg

NICU Targets Recommended by Vermont Oxford Network

Aims

  • 100% of VLBW infants should receive their mother’s milk for at least the first two weeks of life.

  • Have moms pumping within 6 hours of delivery

    Measures

  • The proportion of premature infants receiving > 50% of the volume of their feedings from their mother’s milk at 2 weeks of life.

  • The proportion of mothers who are providing breast milk at 2 weeks.


Nicu strategies l.jpg

NICU Strategies

  • Educational programs for parents and staff stressing the benefits of human milk

  • Incorporate an experienced lactation consultant into the NICU setting

  • Identify procedures for human milk collection, storage, and handling

  • Encourage provision of maternal contact (skin-to-skin) to stable infants

  • Include lactation support and breast milk pumping counseling in admission orders

  • Provide or facilitate access for mothers to an appropriate breast pump in home and hospital setting

  • Encourage and support breast feeding prior to introduction of bottle/nipple feeding when developmentally appropriate


Nicu strategies13 l.jpg

NICU Strategies

  • Create uniform policies regarding human milk fortification and supplementation with appropriate vitamins and minerals as indicated

  • Monitor maternal milk supply as a "vital sign" with a pumping log

  • Track feeding tolerance and selected outcomes including duration of human milk use, days to full feeds, days of TPN use, incidence of feeding intolerance, incidence of NEC, use of human milk fortifiers, and successful establishment of breast feeding

  • Facilitate communication with obstetricians and primary care providers around issues of lactation initiation and benefits of human milk

  • Encourage obstetric providers to actively support breast feeding and breast pumping, before the infant is delivered


Potential barriers to change l.jpg

Potential Barriers to Change

  • Maternal perception that small initial milk volumes are inadequate

  • Desire to initiate feeds regardless of breast milk availability

  • Perception of difficulty in collection, labeling, and safe storage of breast milk

  • Lack of appreciation that mother's milk is a priority in the care of a premature infant

  • Perception that infants fed human milk grow more poorly than infants fed preterm formula

  • Lack of knowledge, policy, or available resources regarding fortification of human breast milk

NICU Project to Increase Mother’s Milk Use in VLBW Infants and Reduce NEC


A new outcome measure for nicus l.jpg

A New Outcome Measure for NICUs

  • Percent of NICU Moms with premature infants who are providing Milk:

    44%


Motivational interviewing mi l.jpg

Motivational Interviewing (MI)

  • Ask permission to discuss breastfeeding and the importance of mother’s milk

  • STOP GIVING ADVICE about it

  • Giving advice on health behaviors can backfire and cause people to resist your advice


Readiness ruler l.jpg

Readiness Ruler

10

  • On a scale of 0-10

  • How ready are you

    • To provide breast milk?

    • To try pumping?

    • Consider breastfeeding?

  • 0 = Not ready

  • 10= Very ready

0
