  Purpose

Early use of oral maxalon can hasten and improve the establishment of breastfeeding in diabetic mothers after preterm and term deliveries.

Maxolon promotes breastfeeding by working on the central nervous system which increases the milk producing hormone, prolactin which in turn helps to increase the milk supply for breastfeeding. Successful early breastfeeding establishment is important for continued breastfeeding.

Detailed Description:

The study aims to determine the breastfeeding initiation and duration rate of a cohort of pregnant women with gestational diabetes(diet-controlled) and insulin dependent and pre-existing diabetes, assess the impact of a post natally administered galactogogue, metoclopramide on the milk volume production and timing of lactogenesis II in diabetic women on diet control and insulin and determine the prolactin response to lactation among diabetic women on diet control and insulin.
