Editor’s Note: In recognition of AWHONN Lifelines’10th anniversary year, we’ll be taking an opportunity in this and other issues this year to look back at articles from the AWHONN Lifelines archives to see how the knowledge of and evidence surrounding certain topics have changed 10 years later. In this issue, we revisit the subject of breastfeeding from an article by Clarke and Deutsch, which appeared in the December 1997 issue of AWHONN Lifelines.

As we all know, evidence, knowledge and practice guidelines are continually changing and evolving—sometimes at alarming speed and causing great controversy and consternation for nurses and the women and families we work with. The intent of this feature is not to criticize the original article(s) or author(s) but rather to point out how research and the evidence it produces change our way of thinking and of practicing over the years. Or, in the case of breastfeeding, how we are still dealing with many of the same issues we did 10 years ago. Breastfeeding continues to present challenges to nurses and the mothers we work with. We still have to work hard to encourage women to breastfeed and now we have to emphasize the importance of continuing for at least six months.
