Editorial Reviews

Breastfeeding is one of the greatest gifts you can give baby. But for many women it's easier said than done. The REAL DEAL on BreastfeedingTM shows modern moms how to make breastfeeding work; it gets moms from OUCH! to AAAHH... Viewers get a lactation consultation, a breastfeeding support group and a one-on-one latch-on lesson all in one reasonably priced 25-minute video. Moms also get invaluable girlfriend-to-girlfriend advice along with some much-needed laughs! In this award-winning video, viewers watch as a brand new mother learns techniques for latch-on, positioning and holds, eliminating discomfort and increasing supply. You'll also get answers to common questions such as: What are the health benefits for mom & baby? How long should I nurse? Can I have a glass of wine? Can I get pregnant while nursing? And much more.

I bought this DVD midway through my pregnancy in order to prepare for breadstfeeding in any way I could. I was incredibly disappointed though. While the video did have clips of women having discussions on breastfeeding topics, they were not very indepth. Also, there was very little actual video of mothers breastfeeding and illustrating actual techniques, a huge upset to me as this was my main reason for buying a DVD. I wanted to see( and not just READ from books)exactly the kinds of things I would need to know.

I have already breastfed two children, but not without problems. I was happy to view this dvd and pick up some pointers to make the third time easier. I was particularly impressed with the demonstration of latching on and the explanation for why the various holds are so important for proper latching on. It is difficult to really appreciate these techniques from books and even with assistance from a lactation specialist the view is rather awkward looking down at yourself. There really is no substitute for seeing another woman correctly hold and position a newborn for nursing. Due to my schedule and obligations I was never able to attend a support group and I don't anticipate being able to this time around. Therefore, the Real Deal has been exactly what I need to prepare and to feel like I have a readily available resource for those 2am feedings when things don't seem to be going exactly right. I have suggested the Real Deal to my sister-in- law and plan to tell my pediatrician about it -- I am too reluctant to give up my copy until feeding is well established!

This DVD is great! Before my son was born I read numerous books and articles on breastfeeding, but it was the Real Deal on Breastfeeding video that brought it all together. I strongly urge purchasing the video for anyone who is a first time breastfeeder or for anyone who had a tough time and gave up sooner than planned in the past.

I received the Real Deal on Breastfeeding DVD about a week before I gave birth. As mentioned above, although I read a lot on breastfeeding this DVD really pulled it together for me. The zoomed in demonstrations truly helped me to understand what the books and articles were describing. When I watched the video I literally said,

In 25 minutes this video takes you through the how-tos of breast feeding. It was clearer, cheaper and faster than the 2 hour class I took because it actually demonstrates up-close how to effectively breast feed, something you can't really get from diagrams and descriptions in classes or books. The question & answer section asks & answers everything you want to know but wouldn't have time (or would be too embarrassed) to ask in a class. Most importantly, if I forget something I can replay the video and remind myself. Great shower gift!

I found this video to be both instructional and inspirational and a true cause for optimism. The "everyday" moms featured on the video offered realistic concerns and solutions to many of the common breastfeeding myths and challenges. For a user-friendly and comforting look at how to breastfeed your baby, watch this video!
