Comparing Alternative Breast Milk Feeding Questions to U.S. Breastfeeding Surveillance Questions.

Summary of "Comparing Alternative Breast Milk Feeding Questions to U.S. Breastfeeding Surveillance Questions."

Most mothers in the United States express their milk, which is then bottle fed to their infants. The National Immunization Survey (NIS), used to report national breastfeeding prevalence, asks about infant breast milk consumption, regardless of whether it is consumed at the mother's breast or from a bottle. The NIS data are often erroneously interpreted, however, to mean prevalence of at-the-breast feeding. We hypothesized that over half of infants classified as breastfed at 3, 6, and 12 months by the NIS questions would also be consuming expressed breast milk.
