Investigating the Psychological Impact of Breastfeeding on the Long-Term Mother-Child Relationship

Project Abstract

This study explores the relationship between breastfeeding and the long-term mother-child relationship. The authors hypothesize that people who were breastfed as infants will report closer relationships with their mothers across the long-term than people who were fed using other methods (i.e. bottles, formula, etc).
