In recent years there has been a resurgence of interest in breastfeeding. Yet first-time mothers often lack the support and the knowledge they need. Many of the available books fail to address the practical challenges that confront many women (especially women who work outside the home) when they choose to breastfeed. For these women, The Breastfeeding Book is a godsend -- with comprehensive, reassuring, authoritative information on:
-- how to get started, including tips for latching on
-- increasing your milk supply
-- breastfeeding in absentia
-- pumps and the new technology associated with breastfeeding
-- making sure your nursing baby gets the nutrition he/she needs

Customer Reviews of The Breastfeeding Book: Everything You Need to Know About Nursing Your Child from Birth Through Weaning

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent! This book was the answer to all my questions about breastfeeding! It covers all the aspects of it, from the basics concepts needed for a good start (correct latching on, positions, feedings frequency..) to the more complex challenges face by mothers who are returning to work or who want to breastfeed their toddler, twins or any mother/baby pair with otherwise special needs. It also gives useful information concerning some aspects often left aside by other books such as the mother nutrition, a guide to breastfeeding products and clothes (what really is useful? plus some useful web sites addresses are provided) and last but not least the father's role in breast feeding. It is THE BOOK I would recommand to any pregnant woman who is considering nursing her infant (and even those who are not, they migth change thier minds!). One warning though, the authors seem to favor natural attachment parenting (they encourage co-sleeping, cue feeding, sling wearing..) which was fine by me but might not be appreciated by everyone.
