Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Breastfeeding is natural, but it is not entirely instinctive for either mothers or babies. The Nursing Mothers Companion has been among the best-selling books on breastfeeding for 25 years, and is respected and recommended by professionals and well loved by new parents for its encouraging and accessible style. Kathleen Huggins equips breastfeeding mothers with all the information they need to overcome potential difficulties and nurse their babies successfully from the first week through the toddler years, or somewhere in between.
 
This fully updated and extensively revised edition provides new information on topics such as:

• Nursing after a cesarean

• How to resume breastfeeding after weaning (relactation)

• Nursing a “near-term” (3-to-5 weeks premature) baby

• Treating postpartum headaches and nausea

• Nutritional supplements to alleviate postpartum depression

• Sharing a baby with baby (co-sleeping) and the risk of SIDS

• Introducing solid foods

• Expressing, storing, and feeding breast milk

• Reviews of breast pumps

 
Readers will also find Hugginss indispensable problem-solving “survival guides,” set off by colored bands on the pages for quick reference, as well as appendices on determining babys milk needs in the first six weeks and the safety of various drugs during breast-feeding. Now more than ever, The Nursing Mothers Companion is the go-to guide every new mother should have at hand.

Synopsis:

Breastfeeding may be natural, but it is not always instinctive. The 20th Anniversary Edition of this classic guide to breastfeeding, beloved by a generation of women, has been completely revised and updated to provide even more practical, reassuring advice and support for today's expectant and nursing mothers. Easy-reference survival guides help identify and resolve problems at each stage. An appendix on drug safety is a unique feature among breastfeeding books.

Synopsis:

PRAISE for THE NURSING MOTHER'S COMPANION

“A delightful, beautifully illustrated, and thoroughly practical book.” - Sheila Kitzinger, author of The Complete Book of Pregnancy and Childbirth

 
“A complete, practical, and easy-to-us guide which will help mothers prevent or solve the usual and not-so-usual breastfeeding problems. Hugginss expertise and warmth shine through every page.” - Penny Simkin, co-author of Pregnancy, Childbirth, and the Newborn
 
“With a unique format that is easy to follow, The Nursing Mothers Companion is a welcome addition to the growing wealth of information available to nursing mothers today.” - Marian Tompson, co-founder of La Leche League
 
“I loved The Nursing Mothers Companion. Helpful, complete, and readable, its ideal for every nursing mother.” - Michelle Harrison, M.D., author of Women in Residence
 
“Health care providers seeking a single book to which they can refer nursing mothers need look no further. The Nursing Mothers Companion will fill the bill.” - Kathleen Auerbach, Ph.D., professional lactation consultant

Synopsis:

The best-selling The Nursing Mother's Companion, now in its fully-updated fifth edition, will help you get off to a good start and guide you through the early months, covering all the basics of breastfeeding and including easy-reference "survival guides" for quick problem-solving. Since its original publication in 1986, more than 1 million nursing moms have relied on this classic guide.
 
Breastfeeding has major benefits for both you and your baby-- it provides the best nutrition (according to the American Academy of Pediatrics and the World Health Organization), it saves money (on sick-baby doctor visits and formula and bottles), and it creates a unique bond between you and your child. Breastfeeding is not always easy, but with proper guidance and encouragement, you can overcome almost any challenge you may encounter and continue to breastfeed for as long as you choose.
