Lack of Mother-Baby Interaction at Breast Feeding Can Cause Iron Deficiency

Parent Interventions

The quality of the interaction between mother and baby can have an impact on whether the child develops iron deficiency anaemia (IDA) or not, according to new research. 
A survey was done in a Detroit clinic among infants and mothers. The quality of mother-baby interaction was recorded on video tape. And the blood samples were taken to assess the iron status. It was found that in the case of infants with IDA, their mothers were less sensitive to infant cues. 
The researchers have inferred from the study that IDA in infancy may be related to less than optimal mother-infant interaction at the time of breast feeding.  More research may be required on the future developmental/behavioral outcomes of children.
