The WSU College of Nursing is conducting a study on breastfeeding relationships between mothers and babies, and researchers need to hear from more participants.

Moms who are breastfeeding healthy newborns will be asked to fill out a 10- to 15-minute online questionnaire, and there are chances to win a gift card.

Specifically, the study is looking for breastfeeding mothers who are one week to 12 weeks postpartum with one healthy, full-term baby.

The requirements also seek moms who haven’t yet returned to work or school and are breastfeeding directly on the breast as part of their feeding methods.

Participants will need to be able to speak and write in English.

For taking part, 20 mothers who join the study will be randomly chosen to receive a $25 Amazon gift card. Mothers will only be asked for their address if they want to be part of the raffle.

For more information and to participate, go to bit.ly/breastfeedingstudy2.

If you have questions about this study, contact Natsuko Wood, the principal investigator, at natsuko.wood@wsu.edu or (509) 324-7397.
