Effect of the maternity ward system on the lactation success of low-income urban Mexican women.
We compared the lactation performance of 165 healthy mothers who planned to breastfeed and gave birth by vaginal delivery, without complications to a healthy infant in either a nursery (NUR) (n = 58) or a rooming-in hospital where formula supplementation was not allowed.
In the rooming-in hospital, women were randomly assigned to a group that received breastfeeding guidance during the hospital stay (RIBFG) (n = 53) or to a control group (RI) (n = 54).
Women were interviewed in the hospital and at 8, 70 and 135 days post-partum (pp).
The groups were similar in socio-economic, demographic, anthropometric, previous breastfeeding experience and prenatal care variables.
