Correlation between Candidate Single Nucleotide Variants and Several Clinicopathological Risk Factors Related to Breast Cancer in Jordanian Women: A Genotype-Phenotype Study
This study aim to investigate the association of breast cancer risk and prognostic factors with single nucleotide variants of the BRCA1, BRCA2, DAPK1, MMP9, TOX3, and TP53 genes in Jordanian women. Blood samples were collected from 230 Jordanian breast cancer patients for use in DNA extraction followed by genotyping and subsequent statistical analysis. We found that two single nucleotide variants (SNVs) of the BRCA2 gene, namely rs1799944 and rs766173, were significantly associated with breastfeeding status. Likewise, the rs11141901 and rs1041326 SNVs of the DAPK1 gene were linked with co-morbidity (p-value = 0.002) and fa...

Maternal dietary inflammatory potential and quality are associated with offspring asthma risk over 10-year follow-up: the Lifeways Cross-Generation Cohort Study.
CONCLUSIONS: Our results suggest that a proinflammatory and low-quality diet during pregnancy is associated with a higher risk of offspring asthma. Pending confirmation from other studies, optimizing these aspects of maternal diet can be a promising strategy for reducing childhood asthma risk. This prospective observational study was registered at the ISRCTN Registry as ISRCTN16537904. PMID: 31826246 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Parental Concerns about Newborn Feeding Post Hospital Discharge
Background: Post hospital discharge newborn feeding education mostly focuses on breastfeeding and is primarily targeted at term infants. Preterm and late-preterm infants are at risk for poor feeding postdischarge, and feeding challenges are common after discharge from the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). Families often have questions about feeding their infants after hospital discharge. Purpose: The goal of this project was to collect data on what questions parents have about feeding their baby after discharge and what strategies may be helpful to improve feeding experiences. These data were intended to inform pla...

Breast Cancer Screening During Lactation: Ensuring Optimal Surveillance for Breastfeeding Women.
Abstract Breast cancer is the most common malignancy among reproductive-aged women, and an increasing number of women are breastfeeding at the time of screening initiation. The literature was reviewed to identify evidence-based guidelines for breast cancer screening during lactation. Health care providers should consider routine age-related or high-risk screening; they should also discuss alternate surveillance strategies, including deferment until cessation of breastfeeding. Shared decision-making and individualized patient care should involve consideration of the limitations of current evidence. Lactation-relate...

Breastfeeding, Baby-Friendly, and Safety: Getting the Balance Right
Breastfeeding has multiple health and social benefits and is regarded by most experts, including the American Academy of Pediatrics, as the optimal feeding practice for newborns. Even so, in the US, rates of breastfeeding initiation and continued breastfeeding at 6 and 12  months remain well below Healthy People 2020 national goals. In 1991, the World Health Organization and the United Nations Children's Fund launched the Baby-Friendly Hospital Initiative to improve breastfeeding initiation at birth and breastfeeding duration through the first year of life.

Breast Milk –Acquired Cytomegalovirus in Premature Infants
Infection with human cytomegalovirus (CMV) is ubiquitous, with a global seroprevalence of approximately 85%. In all human history, most CMV infections have probably been acquired from breastfeeding. Hayes et al in 1972 demonstrated that CMV could be cultured in breast milk, and breastfeeding was proposed as a mechanism by which the virus could be transmitted to the neonate. Subsequent work showed that such postnatal infections are generally innocuous in full-term infants, in contrast to the potentially devastating neurodevelopmental and audiological consequences of CMV infections acquired in utero.

Iodine nutrition in pregnant and breastfeeding women: sufficiency, deficiency, and supplementation.
Authors: Delshad H, Azizi F Abstract Iodine is a micronutrient used by the thyroid gland to produce thyroid hormones, which manage different aspects of body metabolism. Humans depend on exogenous sources of iodine to maintain the normal concentration of thyroid hormones. Pregnancy alters iodine turnover and is associated with significant changes in thyroid function. Daily iodine requirement during pregnancy increases to 250 μg, compared with 150 μg for nonpregnant women. According to recent guidelines of scientific organizations, to improve maternal thyroid status and to prevent child neurocognitive defects, al...

The association between breastfeeding and attachment: A systematic review.
CONCLUSIONS: The findings provide some evidence that breastfeeding might contribute to child attachment security. Furthermore, maternal attachment style might play a role in breastfeeding behaviour. However, more prospective studies are needed to draw a solid conclusion. IMPLICATIONS FOR PRACTICE: With regard to breastfeeding recommendations, health professionals should be aware of and communicate towards clients that the effect of breastfeeding on child attachment might be rather small. Screening of maternal attachment style as a part of maternity practice could be useful to support insecure attached mothers experien...
