This book is written by experienced midwife and Lactation Consultant, Jo Gilpin. It brings refreshing, easy to read, evidence based information about breastfeeding for mothers and their babies, and covers many aspects that impact on breastfeeding success in baby's first year. It is ideal for anyone expecting a baby, anyone with a young baby, or anyone who has had a past history of breastfeeding disappointment. It is also ideal for grandparents to bring them up to speed with modern breastfeeding strategies and ideas. Jo emphasises the great value of birth and the first feeds and explains the small challenges that commonly arise in the first weeks and months, as well as those more significant like low milk supply, mastitis, reflux and slow weight gain. In all, nothing is too difficult to overcome, and she encourages a positive, relaxed and enjoyable breastfeeding relationship between Mother and baby. Fathers are encouraged to be a major source of involvement and support. As baby moves through the first year Jo targets other aspects that can impact on the breastfeeding relationship, like starting solids, settling, sleep and returning to work. This book will enthuse and create confidence not only to give babies the most perfect food in their early lives with all its health benefits, but also a priceless life-long attachment between a Mother and her baby.
