Synopsis

Solve breastfeeding challenges quickly and safely with this beloved and reliable guide!



Breastfeeding is natural, but it can be challenging for new moms and their babies. Hospitals and doctors' offices often do not have the time to respond to the many questions new moms have about nursing their babies-especially when hurdles arise on nights or weekends, as they inevitably do. This book fills the gaps, with accurate advice and a warm and wise tone.



The Nursing Mother's Companion has been among the top two best-selling books on breastfeeding for more than 30 years, with more than one million copies sold. It is respected and recommended by professionals, including The International Lactation Consultant Association, Dr. T. Berry Brazelton, and The American Academy of Pediatrics, and is well loved by new parents for its encouraging and accessible style.



Kathleen Huggins equips breastfeeding mothers with the information they need to overcome potential difficulties and nurse their babies successfully from the first week through whenever they choose to wean. This fully updated and revised 8th edition provides information on topics such as:



How to cope with breastfeeding obstacles and challenges

Incorporating a nursing routine into a working life

Treating postpartum headaches and nausea

Weaning, and introducing solid foods

Expressing, storing, and feeding breast milk

How to choose and use a breast pump, with details on specific models



Nursing Mother's Companion comes complete with "Survival Guides" set off by colored bands on the pages for quick reference, as well as appendices on determining baby's milk needs in the first six weeks, and the safety of various drugs during breastfeeding.



You will also find an insightful foreward by Jessica Martin-Weber, creator of the popular website The Leaky Boob, and a preface by Kelly Bonata, creator of the go-to site KellyMom. These two much-loved authorities speak to the importance of owning an authoritative breastfeeding book that cuts through the jumble of opinions, information, and misinformation on the web.
