Most women are well aware of the fact that breast-feeding is best for their babies. According to a recent online article even though most American women plan on breast-feeding their newborns, less than one-third of those who expected to exclusively breast-feed for three months or more actually achieve the goal, according to new research. The most significant factor in determining if a woman met her breast-feeding goal seemed to be whether a baby received additional feedings while in the hospital. “We found that mothers able to exclusively breast-feed through their hospital stay were more able to meet their breast-feeding intentions,” said the study’s lead author, Cria Perrine, an epidemiologist in the division of nutrition, physical activity and obesity at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Conclusions of the study were posted online June 4 and are scheduled to be published in the July issue of Pediatrics. The World Health Organization (WHO) and the American Academy of Pediatrics recommend that babies be breast-fed as a sole source of nutrition for the first six months of their lives. Earlier research found that only 35 percent of American infants are breast-fed solely for three months, and only 15 percent for the recommended six months, according to background data in the study. Dr. Stuart Kincaid consults with many mothers who breast-fed and are happy with their decision. It is no secret that pregnancy and breast-feeding can take a toll on the appearance of a woman’s breast. Dr. Stuart Kincaid encourages patients that after breast-feeding the options that are available through plastic surgery are able to not only restore the woman’s shape and contour but in many cases improve it beyond its pre-pregnancy state. In most cases Dr. Stuart Kincaid will recommend a breast augmentation with either saline or silicone gel implants combined with a breast lift to correct the sagging component as well as the loss of volume most women have following breast-feeding. Overwhelmingly patients are pleased with their results and feel as though breast-feeding was the right choice for both the baby and the mother.
