  1. Nursing Behaviour and its Relation to Duration of Post-Partum Amenorrhoea in an Andean Community.V. J. Vitzthum - 1989 - Journal of Biosocial Science 21 (2):145-160.
    SummaryNuñoa is a high altitude rural Peruvian community characterized by socioeconomic stratification and differential access to the market economy. Nursing practices and the effects of nursing are also stratified; this translates into a risk of menses at 12 months post-partum nearly seven times greater in wealthier than in poorer women.Most nursing occurs in the morning, among those who practise on-demand breast-feeding. Nursing episodes are clustered into sessions; the amount of breast-feeding is regulated by varying the number of episodes per session (...)

  • Attenuation of Nursing-Related Ovarian Suppression and High Fertility in Well-Nourished, Intensively Breast-Feeding Amele Women of Lowland Papua New Guinea.Carol M. Worthman, Carol L. Jenkins, Joy F. Stallings & Daina Lai - 1993 - Journal of Biosocial Science 25 (4):425-443.
    SummaryIntense, sustained nursing lengthens inter-birth intervals and is causally linked with low natural fertility. However, in traditional settings, the effects of such nursing on fertility are difficult to disentangle from those of nutrition. Results from an prospective, direct observational study of reproductive function in well-nourished Amele women who nurse intensively and persistently but who also have high fertility are here presented. Endocrine measures show that ovarian activity resumes by median 11·0 months postpartum. Median duration of postpartum amenorrhoea is 11·3 months, (...)

  • Lactation, Birth Spacing and Maternal Work-Loads Among Two Castes in Rural Nepal.Catherine Panter-Brick - 1991 - Journal of Biosocial Science 23 (2):137-154.
    The nursing behaviour of rural Nepali women, from two castes inhabiting the same village, is quantified on the basis of 2202 hr of continuous and direct day-time observation over 1 year. Feed duration, interval, total time and daily frequency are examined in relation to women's work, particularly the type of subsistence activity and seasonality. ‘Opportunity’ feeds are governed both by infant demands and maternal activity. Caste differences in birth intervals are also discussed.
