Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Breastfeeding is natural, but it's not always easy. It is the biological norm, but it is not the cultural norm. By learning the seven basic principles in this book, mothers can dramatically increase their likelihood of success and make breastfeeding the enjoyable experience it should be. The seven laws taught in Breast Feeding Made Simple are easy for mothers to understand and are sure to help them avoid some of the pitfalls that they might otherwise face.

    The seven principles include:
  • Babies Have the Urge to Self-Attach
  • Use the Power of Skin-to-Skin: A Baby's Natural Habitat
  • Breastfeed Ad Lib
  • Reach for the Comfort Zone
  • Expect Cluster Nursing
  • More Milk Out = More Milk Made
  • Babies Outgrow Breastfeeding

The book also addresses how to solve common problems and deal with special situations such as breast reductions and babies with special needs. The authors describe some of the social, psychological, and cultural reasons why breastfeeding is not currently the norm, and what this implies for mothers. In all, this is an easy-to-use breastfeeding resource for new mothers, which includes all the latest research and techniques used by those in the lactation field.

Synopsis:

Two breastfeeding specialists team up to provide new mothers with a set of seven basic principles--distilled from the most up-to-date information in the field--that they need to breastfeed successfully.

Synopsis:

In Breastfeeding Solutions, breastfeeding expert and bestselling author Nancy Mohrbacher provides mothers with the latest solutions to common breastfeeding challenges—including pain, milk expression, and weaning, among others—in a quick, easy-to-reference format.
