  Background and Objective: Early breastfeeding initiation in the 1st h after delivery seems unsuccessful. This study aimed to analyze the impact of socio-demographic, knowledge and social support factors toward the failure of early breastfeeding initiation. Materials and Methods: An observational prospective approach was used with 238 selected purposively pregnant women who were followed through delivery in South Sulawesi province. Field data were collected from April-December, 2015. Results: The study results showed that marital age (OR:1.88, 95% CI:1.07-3.31), place of delivery (OR:1.81, 95% CI:0.99-3.29) and midwife social support (OR:2.74, 95%:CI:1.62-4.66) were significant predictors of early breastfeeding initiation, whereas mother’s knowledge was not a significant predictive factor. Home birth was found to be significantly different from hospital birth. Conclusion: To make early breastfeeding initiation successful, it is necessary to combine good practices among an educated midwife, family and traditional birth attendant.

  Objective: The objective of this study was to identify the total bioactive compounds, nutritional value and antioxidant activity in red dragon fruit powder. Methodology: Red dragon fruit powder was prepared using fresh red dragon fruit by sorting, bark stripping, cutting and pureeing the fruit into a slurry with a vacuum evaporator. Chemical analysis was performed using a spectrophotometer included total flavonoid, total phenolic acid and total anthocyanin. An approximate analysis was also performed. Results: The bioactive contents of red dragon fruit powder were: 210.02±0.83 mg/100 g total flavonoids, 386.09±1.52 mg/100 g total phenolic acid and 81.75±1.43 mg/100 g total anthocyanins. Red dragon fruit powder contained: 11.53% moisture, 4.17% ash, 5.30% crude fiber, 5.68% protein and 0.43% fat. Conclusion: Red dragon fruit powder contains highly bioactive compounds (antioxidants) and is a good functional food ingredient with the potential to scavenge 50% of free radicals using 1195.181 ppm red dragon fruit powder. This powder can also be stored for a long time.
