Objectives: Current literature suggests that infant oral anatomy may impact breastfeeding outcomes.
Our research seeks to evaluate superior labial frenulum (SLF) attachment site grade utilizing a modified existing system and investigate the correlation with breastfeeding outcomes.
Two hundred and eight dyads were recruited from the nursery at Brooke Army Medical Center.
The neonate's SLF and lingual frenulum were evaluated and photo-documented. Photos were assessed by blinded reviewers utilizing a modified Stanford SLF grade.
Breastfeeding mothers completed surveys on attitudes and associated pain with feedings 24 h postdelivery, at 2 weeks and at 2 months. Categorical data were analyzed using chi-squared tests or Fisher's exact tests.
Means and standard deviations were analyzed using analysis of variance or Wilcoxon's test.
