i often see in debates on CM "well the AAP says..." as proof that the CMer's option is the best (and sometimes only) one. however, i also see these same moms going against what the AAP suggests in another area. such as using the AAP's breastfeeding suggestions as fact, but being against vaccinating their child (which the AAP suggests). or using the AAPs suggestions on vaccinations as the only way but being against extended rear facing (which the AAP recently added to their guidelines).
if the AAP is a trusted enough organization that one feels their data is correct enough to use in one's defense of a child-rearing issue...then why do so few follow ALL the AAP guidelines? why would one trust the AAPs findings on one issue but not another?
