Little is known about the work patterns of mildly malnourished lactating women: are they modified to accommodate the demands of lactation?
What factors influence their pattern of work during this period of nutritional stress?
These questions were addressed using quantitative and qualitative data collected from 36 randomly selected women living in a poor community in Madura, Indonesia.
Work patterns of the lactating women and their family members were documented for the first 12 months post-partum.
Changes in work activity were analysed within four time periods corresponding to Madurese views on development during infancy: the vulnerable neonatal (birth-40 days), early (6-12 wk) and mid (13-31 wk) stages and the independent late (32-54 wk) stage.
