Martin, an award-winning journalist (and a mother), and Krebs, a pediatrician who specializes in nutrition (and a mother), have come together to create a pragmatic breastfeeding guide. Its format is question-and-answer, and its organization is alphabetic. Thus, if you wonder whether it is advisable to nurse when you have the flu, you!ll find the answer under Flu, Breastfeeding When You Have. Based on questions that were asked on the lactation consultant hotline at the Children!s Hospital of Denver, this book addresses common issues of new mothers (e.g., latching on, sore nipples, night feedings) as well as less common situations, such as breastfeeding babies with special needs. The scope of the Q&A is wide, providing a wealth of detailed information from a modern-day perspective (e.g., see the section on Pierced Nipple ). Highly recommended for consumer health collections and for nursing mothers as a ready-reference tool."Linda M.G. Katz, Florence A. Moore Lib. of Medicine, MCP Hahnemann Univ., Philadelphia
