Every year approximately 1.4 infants per 10,000 are born with
gastroschisis, a congenital defect of the abdominal wall involving
evisceration of the abdominal contents. Feeding these infants is often a
challenge. Despite the many benefits of breastfeeding, most studies
exploring the benefits of breast milk exclude infants with gastroschisis,
All of these infants, however, will be admitted to an NICU, a known
stressful environment. Therefore there are both physical and environmental
stressors confronting both the infant and family. Consistent with Roy's
Adaptation Model, nursing is responsible for promoting adaptation.
Therefore, it was theorized that the exclusive provision of breast milk
may be one intervention that could facilitate adaptation. To this end, a
retrospective study was conducted to compare the length of stay, based on
feeding source, in infants with gastroschisis. Charts of 62 infants
admitted with a diagnosis of gastroschisis from 1997 - 2003 were reviewed.
Of these, 25 (40%) were exclusively fed breast milk, while 24 (39%) were
fed formula and 13 (21%) received both formula and breast milk. The length
of stay was significantly different among the three groups (F2,59=10.14; p
< .001) with those exclusively receiving breast milk having the shortest
length of stay (m=30.8; sd=13.8) . These findings suggest that there is a
difference in short-term outcomes of infants with gastroschisis. More
research is needed to determine if there are long-term advantages.
