About this website
This website was developed to provide evidence-based information on breastfeeding while serving in the military. I hope that the articles are helpful and encouraging to you.
- The Breastfeeding in Combat Boots WEBSITE consists of evidence-based informational articles, FAQ’s, Policies and Resources on breastfeeding in the military (US-centric, but gradually expanding to include international militaries).
- The Breastfeeding in Combat Boots BLOG consists of my experiences, opinions and thoughts on the state of breastfeeding in the military, as well as the occasional how-to post.
- The Breastfeeding in Combat Boots FACEBOOK PAGE is where I post current articles and events relating to breastfeeding in the military, and where military mothers worldwide can come together to discuss breastfeeding while serving in the military (Active, Reserve, Guard).
- The Breastfeeding in Combat Book BOOK is where mothers serving in the military can find expanded, in-depth, evidence-based information about breastfeeding successfully while in the military.
- For more military-centric breastfeeding news and information, follow Breastfeeding in Combat Boots on TWITTER – @BFinCB!
- Breastfeeding in the military is the main focus of Breastfeeding in Combat Boots – however many factors can affect the breastfeeding relationship so there are sometimes articles on other subjects.
- The information and suggestions here are not all or nothing – use what works for your family and leave the rest. My aim is to provide the information you need to make your own decisions about what is best for your child and your family in your situation.
- Resources (articles, studies, etc.) posted by Breastfeeding in Combat Boots relate to breastfeeding in the military specifically, but may also include information on pregnancy/birth/parenting.
