TITLE: Bacterial Culture Outcomes from Spiked Breastmilk; the Effects of Supplemental Chemicals
Authors: Carol Hulland MEd, Anne Eglash* MD, FABM, Jose Pantoja MV, MS, Carol Spiegel PhD,
Pam Ruegg DVM, MPVM, Richard Proctor, MD
Institutions: University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health, and University of
Wisconsin Department of Dairy Science
Background
Lactating women who have chronic breast and nipple pain are at risk for weaning. There is evidence that a
subset of CBNP is due to chronic infections in the breast. Antibacterial properties in breastmilk make it
difficult to interpret breastmilk culture results.
Objective
This study describes the effect of adding chemicals to breastmilk on bacterial culture results.
Method
Breastmilk samples were supplemented as follows: (a) milk only (b) ferrous ammonium sulfate with
ascorbic acid, (c) 2mg/mL sodium citrate.
Five bacteria were used to spike the milk samples. Two isolates were coagulase negative
staphylococci , two were Staphylococcus aureus, and one was a small colony variant Staphylococcus aureus.
The milk samples were cultured as follows; immediately after spiking milk; 8 hours after initial plating, and
20 hours after first plating. Numbers of cfus were counted after 48 hours, and again after 5 days.
Result
Total bacteria and staph species growth declined as more time elapsed after initial spiking but before
culturing.
Two supplements supported greater bacterial growth, for both total counts, and for staphylococcus species
only. These were unsupplemented milk, and milk supplemented with 2mg/mL sodium citrate.
Total staphylococcus counts from all supplements including plain milk declined over 20 hours before
culturing.
Conclusion
Supplementing breastmilk samples with 2mg/ml sodium citrate may enhance bacterial culture growth
including growth of staphylococcus. Adding the supplement to the breastmilk sample and culturing the
sample immediately may also yield greater bacterial growth.
Funding
