Abstract

BACKGROUND: Exclusive breastfeeding can be beneficial for both the baby and the mother. Efforts are needed to increase milk production so that mothers can still only breastfeed their babies. Moringa leaves can increase breast milk production because they contain flavonoids and polyphenols. Moringa leaf cookies were chosen because they are liked by many nursing mothers, can be stored for a relatively long time, and processing can lose nutrients.

AIM: The purpose of the study was to analyze the effectiveness of Moringa leaf cookies in increasing breast milk production.

METHODS: This was a quasi-experiment with pre-test and post-test non-equivalent control group design. The number of samples was 46 respondents on the 1st day of primiparous postpartum mothers who were divided into two into 23 intervention groups given Moringa leaf cookies (125 g/day) for 14 days and Vitamin A and Fe tablets and 23 control groups were given Vitamin A and Fe tablets. In this study, milk production was measured through indicators of infant weight with the right level of accuracy. The analysis used in this study is the paired t-test, independent t-test, and multivariate Test.

RESULTS: There was a difference before and before being given Moringa leaf cookies in the intervention group, while the statistical test results obtained p = 0.000 < 0.05. There was a difference in body weight in the intervention group and the control group and the results of the statistical test p = 0.000 < 0.05.

CONCLUSION: Moringa leaf cookies (125 g/day) for 14 days were effective in increasing breast milk production based on the baby’s weight.
