A study by La Trobe University is looking at whether infant feeding type plays a role in babies sleep

by Kim (follow)
La Trobe University researchers are looking for mothers, who have had babies in the past six months, to take part in an online survey to better understand the relationship between feeding type and babies’ sleep, in the hope it will shed light on the important issue.



Through the national survey, researchers would like to hear from mothers who breastfeed, use formula, express and pump milk or a combination. In particular, researchers want to hear from working mothers, to look at whether the timing of a mother expressing breast milk, and when it is fed to the baby, has any impact on baby’s sleep.

Dr Booker has been researching sleep-related projects for over 10 years. Her own experience as a mother and knowledge in circadian rhythm development intrigued her to pursue the study.

“Outcomes from this study would help guide changes in education and recommendations around labelling of expressed pumped breastmilk for both the mother, as well as hospitals and breastmilk donor banks to match expressed time with consumption - ultimately changing policies and practices. Furthermore, findings could help direct future research on the long-term consequences of mistimed breast milk consumption,” Dr Booker said.

“Understanding the role feeding plays on baby’s sleep, could be important when parents are making decisions about what is right for them.”
