Are we "overselling" breastfeeding? Are advocates trying to force women to breastfeed? Or are we looking for changes to a system that have only ever provided the illusion of choice?
New headlines suggest that there is no link between breastfeeding and IQ, but a closer look at the research suggests this isn't what can be said. It seems we're no further along in answering this question than before.
The debate over how much parents matter to their children's outcomes and well-being is one that has raged for years. New research suggests that our society may be underestimating just the impact us parents can have.
New research is out touting the long-term "benefits" of breastfeeding so of course the Internet explodes with people complaining. I thought I'd tackle some of those comments and concerns in this particular bit of research.
Recently, news reports are making the rounds suggesting that the lack of a set bedtime in children 3 to 7 is associated with greater behavioural problems. Parents are getting panicked if their child doesn’t go to sleep at the exact same time every night... but should they?
Recently, an article by Anna Price and colleagues has been covered in the media as it supposedly touts that there are no long-term effects of infant sleep interventions. I got my hand on the article (which is still in early release through Pediatrics) and decided to write my own peer review.
