La Leche League approves ABCs of Breastfeeing for their store! For the new mom and her baby, breastfeeding provides countless physical and emotional benefits. Breast milk provides proper nourishment, helps strengthen a baby's immune system, and deepens the mother-child bond. However, breastfeeding doesn't always happen as naturally as one might expect. As a Neonatal Practitioner and Board Certified Lactation Consultant (and mother of two), Stacey H. Rubin knows the difficulties new moms can experience. Now, in The ABCs of Breastfeeding, she offers a practical and reader-friendly guide that will help every new mother feel comfortable and confident about feeding her baby. From pregnancy to weaning, this helpful book will show nursing mothers how to: - find a doctor who is breastfeeding-friendly - hold their baby comfortably after birth - recognize the signs that a baby wants to be fed - take necessary steps that will prevent breastfeeding difficulties - build a healthy milk supply - manage the right diet - continue breastfeeding immediately after returning to work - know when to stop breastfeeding Illustrated with real-life stories from the author's own private practice of women who have overcome common and not-so-common breastfeeding difficulties, The ABCs of Breastfeeding will help expectant and new mothers turn their nursing experiences into a joyful one-for themselves and their new babies.
