You might notice that some of the articles on The Truth About Breastfeeding directly contradict information widely available elsewhere on the Web, including sites of a purportedly medical or scientific nature. When this happens it is not in an attempt to create controversy. The only ‘agenda’ of The Truth About Breastfeeding is to report the facts as they currently appear based on the scientific evidence, so that women can make informed choices about the way they feed their babies, and deal with any problems that arise in the most expedient way. Unfortunately, many other information sources simply recycle out of date or inaccurate information, without checking its validity.
So that you know the information contained here is based on the scientific evidence, links to any studies that are discussed are provided at the bottom of each post. Hopefully, the studies reported are those most recent and relevant to the topic: if you notice anything missing, please get in touch!
