MILQ: Mother-Infant Lactation Questionnaire

Why do we want to know about how you feed your child?

The aim of the MILQ study is to follow mother-infant pairs over the first 12 months of life to understand how families are feeding their full-term infants, and what challenges they experience.

We hope to use this information to inform the support services at South Australian hospitals and postnatal care providers. The information collected will also help us understand the current practices for the introduction of complementary feeding.

What is involved in the study?

Participation involves completing short online surveys. The frequency and number of surveys you will receive will depend on your baby’s age at enrolment and their feeding practices.

Each survey will take between 5-10 minutes to complete.

Who can take part?

Families of

  • Singleton born babies,
  • Born between 37 and 42 weeks gestation, and
  • Who are currently less than or equal to 49 days (7 weeks) of age

  • How to participate?
