A comprehensive, easy-to-read guide for pregnant and nursing moms,
This review is from: Great Expectations: The Essential Guide to Breastfeeding (Paperback)
This book presents up-to-date information and advice from a doctor who has many years of experience in breastfeeding medicine (and who breastfed her own five children!) I loved the encouraging tone of the book. It's comprehensive yet accessible and enthusiastic yet non-judgmental. It offers everything to get breastfeeding off to a good start and to deal with any challenges or changes in the breastfeeding relationship. It covers the early days, adjusting to parenthood, pumping and storing breast milk, tips for working mothers, common breastfeeding problems, and special situations such as multiples or pre-term babies. While I wish Dr. Neifert were in favor of bed sharing, I was happy to see that she included guidelines on co-sleeping.
As a breastfeeding counselor and breastfeeding mother myself, I highly recommend this book for expecting, new and experienced mothers.
