Summary

To determine the antecedents of sucking in infants, the behavior of 24 infants from 48- to 60-hours-old was observed in relation to a sucking device. The device measured pressure and rate of sucking and delivered a controlled flow of nutrient. The interfeeding interval was varied among the experimental and control groups. Little sucking behavior was found in the first half hour after routine feeding, but sucking pressure quickly recovered in the first hour and sucking rate gradually reached its highest level by 3 hours after the meal. While a particular child's sucking pressure doesn't ever vary much, his sucking rate, and thus volume of nutrient consumed, is dependent on a variety of environmental factors, including interfeeding interval, obstetric sedation, level of wakefulness, and type of nutrient. Knowledge concerning the factors influencing sucking rate should be applied to the problem of infants who fail to thrive on routine management. (MH)
