Background and aim: Since hypoglycemia sequel includes neurologic damage resulting in mental retardation, it requires immediate attention. Due to the risk of hypoglycemia in healthy term infants with inappropriate diet, this study was designed to determine the effectiveness of feeding on blood sugar levels in healthy term infants. Methodology: This clinical trial study was conducted on 85 eligible pregnant women. Samples were randomly assigned to two groups of cases and controls. Three sessions of 90 minutes theoretical and practical classroom training were held in the last month of pregnancy for the cases for a period of one month. Blood samples were taken at 1,3,and6 hours of life and blood sugar levels were recorded in a special form. Then the collected data were analyzed in Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS,16) using appropriate statistical procedures such as independent t-test, Chi-square, Pearson correlation, Regression and Anova. Results: The highest mean blood glucose was observed in the cases and the lowest blood glucose in the controls. The highest rate of hypoglycemia was observed 3 and 6 hours after birth in the cases. The statistical analysis showed no significant relationship between the qualitative and quantitative demographic variables and the infants, blood sugar levels. Height in newborn within the first 24 hours of life (by controlling other variables) in the p value less than 0.05 showed a significant correlation with hypoglycemia (pvalue= 0.003). The correlation was negative ,i.e. an increase of 1 cm in neonates’height reduced the risk of neonatal hypoglycemia up to 40%. Conclusion: The correct method of breastfeeding significantly increased the blood glucose in healthy term infants and reduced the incidence of hypoglycemia in them. Therefore, despite the ongoing trainings in breastfeeding, further training sessions are needed for proper breastfeeding in pregnant and primiparous women. So paying attention to the low plasma glucose levels in the absence of proper breastfeeding in term infants is recommended.
