There is a range of reasons why for many in the UK, breastfeeding represents a challenging choice.

This study by Kim Baldwin at The Open University is to investigate attitudes to breastfeeding among women of varying ages. The survey is looking at the relationship between personality and attitude to breastfeeding.

With many studies basing their research on mothers with babies or young children, this study looks at women regardless of their age, or their child's age.

I am exploring whether personality traits has an effect on attitudes. My area of interest is women’s attitudes to breastfeeding. I have devised a survey that taps into previous research and asks a few demographic questions before taking the participants to two sets of statement questions, one is about personality traits and the other regrading views on breastfeeding.

Could you pass this to all the women you know as I need to get 500 or more participants to complete this part of my degree. The more participants I get the greater the data for my results section. This can be women with or without children. All is explained on the information sheet before you consent to taking part.

I've done it for you

Done! I think that you're going to get a bit of a skewed sample size though as I think that more people who breastfeed will be likely to take a survey like this than people who FF. n

Just to say, I dot it and I choose to exclusively formula feed

Done. I breast fed for 8 months then changed to formula due to serious biting issues. He managed to make me bleed through shields! confused

Done. Nice survey. Much better than most. Still a bit 'leading', though.

I agree calling it an infant feeding survey might be more accurate so you get a mix of bf and ff responses. Also surprised you didn't ask if we had bf or ff or combo!

i missed the writing at the end,
did it say extroverts breast feed in public?
anyone remember?
