Variability of breast sucking, associated milk transfer and the duration of lactational amenorrhoea

Variability of breast sucking, associated milk transfer and the duration of lactational amenorrhoea

Journal of Reproduction and Fertility 115(2): 193-200

Quantitative relationships between physical parameters of sucking, milk transfer and the duration of amenorrhoea were examined in normal mother-infant pairs under exclusive breast-feeding conditions. Sucking pressures were recorded twice on the second and once on the fifth month after birth, during complete breast-feeding episodes, by means of a catheter attached to the nipple and connected to a pressure transducer, the signals of which were analysed by computer.
