Publisher Comments:

Make the Most of your Nursing Experience

Dr. Marvin Eiger, a nationally known pediatrician and breastfeeding authority, and Sally Wendkos Olds, an award-winning medical writer who nursed her own three childrem, provide you with all the new information you need to make nursing your baby a deeply rewarding part of your life.

Praise For The Third Edition:

"This edition is a wonderful blend of the art and science of breastfeeding. We all need it!...It is the only breastfeeding book that can be used by both health care personnel and the nursing mother and father. It is established as a classic in the medical field. The resource appendix and the emphasis on breastfeeding support systems are most welcome." - Cheston M. Berlin, Jr., M.D. University Professor of Pediatrics, The Pennsylvania State University College of Medicine

"This brilliant update of a classic book is an invaluable resource for contemporary nursing families. You'll find yourself picking it up daily for its practical advice, warmth, and comfort. It's like having a lactation expert in the house." - Barbara Seaman, Author and Co-founder, National Women's Health Network

"The Complete Book of Breastfeeding lives up to its title! It is a skillful blend of personal and professional information, reflecting the expertise of its outstanding authors and others in the field of lactation." - Betty L. Crase, IBCLC, Former Director of the Center for Breastfeeding Information, La Leche League International

Synopsis:

The classic work with over one million copies in print has been completely revised and updated to cover the new American Academy of Pediatrics guidelines. Photos & line illustrations.

Synopsis:

With over one and a half million trade and mass-market paperback copies in print, The Complete Book of Breastfeeding is one of the recognized classics in its field. Now it has been completely revised and updated, and dovetails perfectly with the recent major policy statement by the American Academy of Pediatrics, which recommends exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months and continued nursing for at least one year and as long thereafter as mother and child desire. In addition to incorporating the new AAP guidelines throughout the book, the Third Edition draws on the very latest research from prominent scholars and practitioners in the field. It presents new information on how breastfeeding offers protection against various diseases for both child and mother; new discussion of the positive impact of breastfeeding on a child's cognitive development; a greatly expanded section on available support systems and their importance; guidelines to help a mother-to-be choose a hospital or birthing center with breastfeeding-positive policies; and a new section on signs of baby's adequate milk intake, with charts. Plus new and expanded sections on nutrition for lactating mothers, the mother's social life, the role of the father, the nursing working mother, how to express, store, and offer breast milk, and how to wean your child. This is the warm, accessible, and authoritative guide for every new mother.
