Preterm infants have lower rates of breastfeeding (BrF) initiation and duration than those for term infants in the US and preterm infants in other countries. Supplementation of BrF may possibly interfere with BrF outcomes for this population. The long-term objective of this research program is to identify suitable methods for supplementation of BrF for preterm infants. The first research project describes and compares physiologic responses of preterm infants serving as their own controls for two feeding methods: bottle feeding with the orthodontic nipple and BrF. The second study describes the mechanics used to obtain milk during cup feeding and reports the coordination of milk delivery via the cup with breathing. For both studies, the following variables were measured noninvasively and recorded continuously: sucking and oral mechanics (stretch-sensitive mercury strain gage), breathing (nasal thermistor), Sa02 (pulse oximeter), and volume of intake (test-weighing). Data were analyzed from 14 BrFs, 15 bottle feedings and 18 cup feedings. Differences in physiologic responses for the three feeding methods will be described. Additionally, issues related to the continuous measurement of physiologic variables will be discussed, including parental and infant responses, accuracy of physiologic measures, analysis of waveform data and repeated measures.
