Breast-feeding and post partum amenorrhoea in Central Africa. 3. Milk production in an urban area

For part 1 see NAR/A 51, 8800. Studied were 167 breast-feeding women from Bukavu, a large city in Zaire. Their infants were weighed before and after each feeding during a 24-h period. The cumulative frequency of women who had resumed menstruation when the children were 1 and 2 years old was 50 and 100%. The quantity of milk produced in 24 h was 600 to 800 g during the 1st year; it declined rapidly with age of the child.
