I'm about to start my dissertation and i'm looking into behaviour of bf and FF babies but as of yet I cannot find much literature on my limited uni journal resource.

Anyone know of any places, books or available published articles on this?

Kelly mom is the site to look at.

ABM will also be very helpful

What sort of behaviour? Do you mean behaviour rather than health outcomes?

Actual behaviour organiccarrotcake like how long babies can play by themselves, whether they cry when there's nothing obviously wrong, ie clean, full, comfy and not poorly etc

They need to be from credible sources to be used so kellymom isn't one but thanks anyway smile

Kellymom is a highly credible source, humpty. Firstly she's an IBCLC herself, and secondly all her writings are referenced so you can work through what she says and read the actual research that backs it up - and that would be work that you could reference.

I've never really seen research into behaviour of this sort. There is some into length of sleeping which Tiktok's been posting recently but I've not yet read it which might be of interest to you. You might try posting on the Analytical Armadillo's Facebook page - there's lots of people there who may have some ideas for you.

I think what I'm trying to think around is the "nothing obviously wrong" behaviour. I mean, some babies might cry because they are reacting badly to a formulla, say, but this would come under a health category I should think. I can't see how FF or BM would affect how they'd play. hmm I'll have a think though and if anything comes to mind I'll forward it on. I'd be interested to see anything you find smile

Ah ok I didn't realise about kellymom, sorry blush, I'll deffo check that out then.

I don't think I'll find anything significant, eventhough I suppose if I don't find anything significant it's still significant iyswim lol how confusing!

It stems from my friend who FF and her baby could never be on her own but my bf always could. Obviously a LOT of other surrounding factors so will be doing small interviews too to explore that. Just wanted to do something that would be interesting, unusual and get me noticed in the big world of psychology haha smile

Oh and it's also on 'experiences of motherhood' and whether these differ bf bs FF smile

Ahh, now, the "experiences of motherhood" might reap more results for you. I expect that that would be very interesting.

Regarding your baby V her baby, this is undoubtedly just different babies (there you go, I've made a definitive statement because I know and I am not to be contradicted grin). But seriously, while there may (possibly) be reasons why her baby ended up being FF BECAUSE she was a clingy baby, it won't be the other way round - although there is significant evidence that high needs babies need responsive parenting to become as confident in the world as they can be, so some styles of separating parenting can continue to drive their clinginess. This is in no way a comment at your friend's parenting, just background on the research. But I'm sure you understand that smile
