The article profiles Lawrence Gartner, best known for his studies of the relationship between breastfeeding and newborn jaundice. Through 40 years of infant and animal studies, Gartner has demonstrated that prolonged physiologic jaundice in the breastfed infant is a normal and regularly occurring phenomenon. Gartner has also demonstrated that the breastfed infant who receives less than optimal milk intake can have a different form of exaggerated jaundice known as starvation jaundice of the newborn or breast-nonfeeding jaundice. For the past 35 years, Lawrence Gartner has devoted himself to the improvement of breastfeeding education for physicians, nurses, and the general public.
