Mother and Daughter Kangaroo Care

Promoting “Exclusive Breastfeeding” at Discharge

–European Federation for the Care of Newborn Infants (EFCNI)

“Stress can block [a mother’s milk] let-down-reflex … making breastfeeding more difficult.”


As preterm research continues to mount across the global; this past week celebrates World Breastfeeding Week 2018—#WBW2018. From research in North America to Europe, spanning more than 14 countries the evidence is taking new shape to better explain the benefits and effects of #breastfeeding.


Breastfeeding Further Promotes Baby-Parent Bonding

Here is what the research is saying, “stress can block [a mother’s milk] let-down-reflex … making breastfeeding more difficult.” There are many ways to reduce stress to help make breastfeeding easier.  In fact, the simple act of breastfeeding is known to release oxytocin and prolactin hormones, which are known for lowering the stress hormone, cortisol. Mother’s looking for peaceful and relaxing ways to breastfeed, will soon have access to Beibamboo’s newly designed “kangaroo top.”

Beibamboo has worked in partnership with a Finnish NICU to design a #KangarooTop specifically to aid new moms during Kangaroo Care, which often includes breastfeeding. Many NICUs that support a system for more breastfeeding during Kangaroo Care often see greater success in preemies as they adjust to #ExclusiveBreastfeeding at the time of discharge.

The existing findings provides new insight on “breast milk feedings for very preterm infants.” Of those findings, researchers have found that the benefits of breast milk prevent a variety of morbidities and cultivate brain development through “exclusive breastfeeding … for the first six months of age.”
