A SYSTEMATIC REVIEW: HOW DOES EARLY INFANTS BREASTFEEDING PRACTICES REDUCE THE INFECTION- SPESIFIC?

Nenden Nur Asriyani Maryam

Abstract


Introduction. Early infants breastfeeding may reduce neonatal mortality by decreasing the ingestion of infectious pathogens and provides many immunocompetent factors. Despite the many known benefits of early infants breastfeeding on neonatal infection, these practices is still not well applied in Indonesian healthcare settings. Aim. The aim of this study was to conduct an evidence-based systematic review and provide an academic estimation of the effect of early infants breastfeeding on neonatal infection. Method. The search for resources of this study is confined solely to EBCOHost, Proquest, and Pubmed. Studies published in English from 2007-2017 inclusively considered as criteria in this review. The quantitative component of the review was considered as experimental and epidemiological study. Data extracted and summarized by reviewer using Joanna Briggs Institute (JBI). Four systematic review were included in this review. Result. The result of this systematic review showed that early infants breastfeeding reduced infection - specific neonatal mortality. Conclusions and Recommendations. Early infants breasfeeding can benefit infants, families and health care providers as well. Policy makers are able to utilize this review in its display of early infants breasfeeding as reducing practices against infection - specific neonatal mortality.
