Hey ladies I am in my OB rotation of nursing school and we have to do a poster presentation on anything women's health. I have found that sadly even some of my instructors knowledge of breastfeeding (especially after 1 year) is a little lacking. I want to do my presentation on either tandem breastfeeding or breastfeeding while pregnant because these are areas I think provider knowledge tends to fall short in. (my clinical instructor is very "pro bfing," but sees the WHO recommendation of bf-ing until age 2 as "population control") this is where you lovely ladies come in, I need sources. Professional research journals are best, so none of this Kellymom stuff unless it happens to cite a refference I might be able to use.
Thank you in advance for all your help! Lets teach my classmates that I am NOT "crazy breastfeeding girl," but rather that I gave my son an amazing head start in life!
