The Influence of Feeding Position on Pulmonary Morbidity in Young Children
The Influence of Feeding Position on Pulmonary Morbidity in Young Children
Supine feeding position is associated with serous otitis media. The hypothesis is that supine feeding is associated with recurrent otitis media, tonsillar and adenoid hypertrophy and recurrent pneumonia secondary to recurrent aspiration.
The aim of the study is to compare two "mother and child health clinic" stations with similar socioeconomic background. Mothers from the study station will be instructed to feed their children only in an upright position since birth. In the control station mothers will continue to feed their children as usual. Pulmonary morbidity will be evaluated prospectively through the computer system of the insurance companies.
