Ohio clinic finds breastfeeding more likely to occur if newborn’s first bath is delayed

Today 07:01 GMT

Although our findings need to be replicated in other studies, they reinforce the connection between delayed bathing and greater likelihood of newborn breastfeeding that may extend into the postdischarge feeding plan and practice,” the researchers said in the study.

The study, published Monday in the Journal for Obstetrics, Gynecologic, and Neonatal Nursing, found that delaying a newborn’s first bath by about 12 hours “was associated with increased in-hospital exclusive breastfeeding rates and use of human milk as a part of the discharge feeding plan.”
