Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    If a baby has Duarte galactosemia can the be fully breastfeed?

    • A.

      Yes, definitely!

    • B.

      No, never!

    • C.

      They may be partially breastfeed

    Correct Answer
    C. They may be partially breastfeed
    Explanation
    Babies with Duarte galactosemia have a milder form of the condition, which means they can tolerate small amounts of galactose, a sugar found in breast milk. However, they may still have difficulty fully digesting galactose, so it is recommended to partially breastfeed them and supplement their diet with a lactose-restricted formula.

      Yes

    Correct Answer
    B. No, they recommend a minimum of one year of breastfeeding
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "No, they recommend a minimum of one year of breastfeeding." This means that the AAP (American Academy of Pediatrics) suggests that mothers breastfeed their babies for at least one year. This recommendation is in line with the World Health Organization's guidelines, which also recommend breastfeeding for a minimum of one year. It is important to note that breastfeeding for longer than one year is also beneficial for both the mother and the baby.

    The average pumping amount for mother nursing at the breast is?

    • A.

      3-4 oz.

    • B.

      1/2-2 oz.

    • C.

      5-6 oz.

    • D.

      1-2oz.

    • E.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. 1/2-2 oz.
    Explanation
    The average pumping amount for a mother nursing at the breast can vary, but it is generally between 1/2-2 oz. This range takes into account that every mother and baby is different, and the amount of milk produced can vary depending on factors such as the baby's age, the mother's milk supply, and the frequency of feedings. It is important to note that this is an average range and individual experiences may vary.

  • 5. 

    A retained piece of placenta after birth can cause?

    • A.

      Oversupply

    • B.

      Failure of mom' milk to come in

    • C.

      Extreme pain in her breast

    • D.

      Poor quality BM to be produced

    Correct Answer
    B. Failure of mom' milk to come in
    Explanation
    Retained placenta after birth can cause failure of mom's milk to come in. This is because the retained placenta can interfere with the normal hormonal changes and signals that stimulate milk production. When the placenta is not fully expelled, it can disrupt the release of oxytocin, a hormone responsible for milk letdown and production. As a result, the mother may experience difficulties in producing an adequate milk supply for her baby.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    At 10 months old, solids should be what percentage maximum of a breastfed baby's diet?

    • A.

      25%

    • B.

      50%

    • C.

      5%

    • D.

      75%

    • E.

      10%

    Correct Answer
    A. 25%
    Explanation
    At 10 months old, solids should be a maximum of 25% of a breastfed baby's diet. This is because breast milk or formula should still be the primary source of nutrition for babies under one year old. Introducing solids gradually helps babies develop their eating skills and allows them to explore different tastes and textures. However, breast milk or formula should continue to provide the majority of their nutrition until they are closer to one year old.

  • 8. 

    Green frothy poop in a breastfed baby is most likely an indicator of?

    • A.

      Milk protein intolerance

    • B.

      Fore-milk/hind-milk imbalance

    • C.

      Lactose intolerance

    • D.

      Too many green vegetables in mom's diet

    • E.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. Fore-milk/hind-milk imbalance
    Explanation
    Fore-milk/hind-milk imbalance occurs when a baby does not receive enough of the fatty hind-milk during breastfeeding. This can lead to green frothy poop in a breastfed baby. The fore-milk, which is the milk at the beginning of a feeding, is higher in lactose and lower in fat. If the baby only consumes fore-milk and not enough hind-milk, it can cause an imbalance and result in green poop.

    A. All phenothiazines
    C. Ortho Tricyclen
    D. Lithium
    Explanation
    Phenothiazines, Ortho Tricyclen, and Lithium are contraindicated for use while breastfeeding. Phenothiazines are a class of antipsychotic medications that can pass into breast milk and cause sedation and other adverse effects in the infant. Ortho Tricyclen is an oral contraceptive that contains estrogen and progestin, which can decrease milk production and affect the quality of breast milk. Lithium is a mood stabilizer that can pass into breast milk and potentially cause toxicity in the infant. Therefore, it is not recommended to use these medications while breastfeeding.

    D. Less then 6-8 wet and 3-4 dirty diapers per day average
    Explanation
    The lack of weight gain and having less than 6-8 wet diapers and 3-4 dirty diapers per day are good indicators of low milk supply. These signs suggest that the baby is not getting enough milk to meet their nutritional needs.

  • 12. 

    Which of the following has been show to increase a mother's milk supply?

    • A.

      Blessed Thistle

    • B.

      Beer

    • C.

    • E.

      Goat's milk

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Blessed Thistle
    C. Domperidone
    D. Oatmeal
    Explanation
    Blessed Thistle, Domperidone, and Oatmeal have all been shown to increase a mother's milk supply. Blessed Thistle is an herb that has been used for centuries to promote lactation. Domperidone is a medication that can stimulate the release of prolactin, a hormone that helps with milk production. Oatmeal contains beta-glucan, a type of fiber that may increase prolactin levels and enhance milk supply. These options have been found to be effective in increasing milk production in breastfeeding mothers. Goat's milk and beer do not have the same proven effect on milk supply.

    The average weight gain for breastfed babies at at 5 months is:

    • A.

      4-5 oz per week.

    • B.

      5-7 oz per week.

      2-4 oz per week.

    • E.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. 4-5 oz per week.
    Explanation
    Breastfed babies typically gain an average of 4-5 oz per week at 5 months. This is a healthy weight gain for infants who are exclusively breastfed. Breast milk provides all the necessary nutrients for a baby's growth and development, and this rate of weight gain is considered normal. It is important to note that every baby is different, and there can be some variation in weight gain. However, 4-5 oz per week is generally considered a healthy range for breastfed babies at this age.

    The act of an infant sucking the nipple stimulates the production of this hormone?

    Correct Answer
    Prolactin
    Explanation
    When an infant sucks the nipple, it stimulates the release of prolactin hormone. Prolactin plays a crucial role in lactation and milk production in females. It is responsible for stimulating the mammary glands to produce milk. Therefore, the act of sucking triggers the release of prolactin, which helps in the production of breast milk for the infant's nourishment.

    The let-down reflex and orgasms both require this?

    Correct Answer
    Oxytocin
    Explanation
    The let-down reflex and orgasms both require oxytocin. Oxytocin is a hormone that is released during sexual arousal and orgasm, as well as during breastfeeding. It plays a crucial role in facilitating bonding, trust, and pleasure. During breastfeeding, oxytocin triggers the let-down reflex, which allows milk to flow from the breasts to the baby. Similarly, during sexual activity, oxytocin is released, leading to pleasurable sensations and orgasm. Overall, oxytocin is essential for both the let-down reflex and orgasms.
