I'm looking for suggestions

Posted by   + Show Post

I am working on the final part of my English paper. : )

I have to discuss TWO effects of more moms nursing for at least one to two years. She asked for a short-term effect and a long-term effect. For the short-term, I am going to talk about how babies get antibodies to keep them healthier. 

I would like suggestions for something to use for the long-term effect.

I'm not sure what you are saying.

I have already used the CDC as a reference, so I need somewhere else to get information.

Have you heard the term "virgin gut"? It has to do with the bennifits of breastfeeding exclusively for 6 months. Also these articles will often include evidense based reasearch about longterm bennifits as well. There is so much research there it shouldnt take you long. Good luck!


Does that make more sense?

One of the best long term Effects of BF is better "attachment" which was for to be critical to child development by Bowlby and Ainsworth. There is lots of info available on the Internet about this so it should be easy to write about.

I copied and pasted this from a website : "Attachment theory is based on the belief that the mother-child bond is the essential and primary force in infant development, and thus forms the basis of coping, negotiation of relationships, and personality development.1 If the mother is absent or unavailable, a primary caregiver serves the mother's role. Attachment can be defined in both behavioral and emotional terms. From a behavioral perspective, attachment is represented by a cluster of instinctive child behaviors that serve to create the attachment bond, protect the child from fear and harm, and assist in the safe exploration of the world.2 These behaviors include reaching, clinging, sucking, and locomotion, and all facilitate maximum physical and emotional development.3"

Yes, I have. I know all of the benefits. I was trying to decide on two specific ones to write about. I only have 350 words for this. I can't go on about everything as much as i would love to.
