    Default Nursing beyond 12 months online survey-please participate

    Dear forum users, this survey took me about 10 minutes and I had 3 kids to cover. It's quick, easy and anonymous. -LLLMeg

    From LLL USA:
    The Chief of Developmental & Behavioral Pediatrics at the Cohen Children's Medical Center of New York contacted LLLI for help with a breastfeeding survey. His division is interested in studying the experiences of mothers who chose to breastfeed their infants beyond one year of age. They are particularly interested in learning more about these mothers' experiences with their health care providers, families, and friends regarding prolonged nursing and where these mothers found the support they needed.

    LLLI forwarded the project to the LLL USA Council since the survey focuses primarily on mothers in the USA.

    No mothers, babies, milk supplies, or breastfeeding relationships will be put at risk by a mother's participation in this study. There is no outside funding or conflict of interest. The survey has been reviewed and approved by the Cohen Children's Medical Center Institutional Review Board. The LLL USA Council has also reviewed the survey.

    Eventually the researchers' goal is to share the results at the annual Pediatric Academic Societies' meeting --- the preeminent pediatric research meeting. They also plan to submit the findings to one of the peer-reviewed pediatric journals for publication and perhaps to the American Academy of Pediatrics as well. The results could eventually impact the training of young pediatricians during their residencies. The results may also provide support for funding opportunities for LLL.

    Please help in the distribution of this survey through all the appropriate channels to which you have access and encourage others to do the same. We are hoping for a very large nationwide response from current and former LLL Leaders, members, friends, and from mothers who have not yet met LLL, too! This survey is for all mothers who have ever breastfed a child beyond a year.

    Here is the link: www.BreastfeedingToddlers.org

    The survey is also posted on the LLL USA Facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/LaLecheLeagueUSA

    While we are hoping for a surge of responses right away, the study will continue through mid-April.

    Thank you for your help in sharing the survey!

    LLL USA Council

    I was so happy to see this survey - I think there definitely needs to be more research into factors that influence breastfeeding beyond a year. And I agree with LLLMeg, it was straightforward and did not take long.
