Many Ob-Gyn Textbooks Lack Good Info on Breast-Feeding

That could mean the wrong advice getting passed on to new moms, experts say

TUESDAY, May 6 (HealthDay News) -- Doctors coaching new nursing mothers will find little practical advice to share from some of the classic obstetrics textbooks, a new study suggests.

Some of the texts omit key information for solving breast-feeding problems and others are inaccurate about the key steps involved, according to a study presented at this week's annual meeting of the Academy of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, in New Orleans.

He was not involved in the new research.

Breast-feeding is not as easy as people think and "needs a lot of encouragement and support early on," he added, and "with frustration, mothers can switch very quickly to the bottle."

On the other hand, gentle and accurate instruction about how to hold the baby to the breast properly can reduce some of the discomfort some nursing mothers experience, Aponte said.

The new review covered what the authors called "the five most popular obstetrics and gynecology textbooks based on sales." Ogburn gave two of the textbooks in the study -- the 2003 edition of Maternal-Feta
