In 120 nursing mothers, the quantity of milk suckled was evaluated during the first days of the puerperium.

It was noted that, as the parity of the mother increased, the mean quantity of breast milk suckled/24 hours increased on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd day of the puerperium, as well as during the last 24 hours prior to discharge from the hospital (3rd or 4th post-partum day). Given the importance of a satisfactory flow of breast milk during the first days of the puerperium in the successful initiation of the breast-feeding experience, the authors would like to emphasize the increased risk of failure in the primipara and to suggest that greater attention be given to the effect of maternal parity in programs which promote breast-feeding.

Abstract

In 120 nursing mothers, the quantity of milk suckled was evaluated during the first days of the puerperium. Measurements of the milk intake were based on the difference between the weights of the neonate before and after each feeding. It was noted that, as the parity of the mother increased, the mean quantity of breast milk suckled/24 hours increased on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd day of the puerperium, as well as during the last 24 hours prior to discharge from the hospital (3rd or 4th post-partum day). Given the importance of a satisfactory flow of breast milk during the first days of the puerperium in the successful initiation of the breast-feeding experience, the authors would like to emphasize the increased risk of failure in the primipara and to suggest that greater attention be given to the effect of maternal parity in programs which promote breast-feeding.
