The article presents a study on the association between high prepregnancy body mass index (BMI), breast-milk expression, and breast-milk production and feeding. The study included lactating women whose BMI and breast-milk production, feeding, and expression are collected. It suggests that breast-milk expression behaviors may differ by maternal BMI category only in the early postpartum period.
