How baby-led parenting is important for breastfeeding

I did some research a couple of years back with my fellow academic Dr Bronia Arnott looking at the link between early parenting styles and breastfeeding. We found that when mums tried to use high levels of routine and worried about being too responsive to their babies needs, they were less likely to continue breastfeeding.

I filmed a lovely piece with some local breastfeeding mums about the work which has turned up on youtube!

It was also discussed in the Courier  on the eco childs play website, by parenting science and by La Leche League.
