Publisher Comments:

A newly revised and updated version of a definitive bestselling book on breastfeeding.

One of the most influential child-care books ever published, the newest edition of The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding includes the latest scientific information about the health benefits of breastfeeding.

A wealth of helpful hints such as preparing for breasffeeding, returning to work, nutritional advice for mothers, and the weaning process is provided. General child-care tips on handling colicky babies, the father's role in the baby's life, and toddler discipline are also contained in this comprehensive book. This updated version adds new information on the effects of labor medications on newborns, exercising and losing weight safely while nursing, research that shows breastfed babies have higher IQs, and much more.

The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding is written in a warm, encouraging and positive voice that better informs us about the important benefits offered to mother and child. It is filled with loads of expert advice from healthcare professionals, plus the real-life experiences of other breasffeeding women offering invaluable support and guidance no new mother can do without.

Synopsis:

All parents want the best for their babies, and there's no doubt about the fact that human milk is the ideal food for human babies. What's the secret of successful breastfeeding? For almost fifty years mothers who have been in touch with La Leche League have found the kind of information and support they needed to breastfeed their babies.
