While human milk is the ideal food for all babies, it is critically therapeutic medicine for premature babies. Prior surveys demonstrated that the population most at risk for failed lactogenesis was the mother of the extremely low birth weight (ELBW) infant. The purpose of this pilot project was to determine the feasibility of, and the development of an educational program for, a future research study on maintaining lactogenesis in mothers of ELBW infants. A literature review using multiple online search engines provided benchmark data, confirmed current evidence regarding maintaining lactogenesis in mothers of preterm babies, and identified gaps in the literature. This project was guided by the Havelock Linker Change Model which provided a theoretical framework for the dissemination of knowledge into practice. A program of concentrated lactation support, including assurance of adequate pumping equipment and weekly support/education from lactation staff was theorized to promote maintenance of lactogenesis throughout the NICU stay. A convenience sample, drawn from a base sample of mothers already planning to breastfeed their infants, was observed during their baby‟s NICU stay. Five out of five ELBW babies had breast milk available throughout the NICU stay. Results indicate that it is reasonable to pursue a large-scale research study applying concentrated lactation support to mothers of ELBW babies.
