Women's Decisions about Breastfeeding and Maternal Employment.
Lindberg, Laura Duberstein
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v58 n1 p239-51 Feb 1996
Extends the concept of role incompatibility to examine potential incompatibilities between breastfeeding and maternal employment. Hypothesizes women may face both structural and attitudinal conflicts between these behaviors. Found significantly more women employed part-time are likely to breastfeed and for longer durations than women employed full-time, suggesting conflicts between breastfeeding and working at a job vary by intensity of employment.
