Breastfeeding an Adopted Baby and Relactationby Elizabeth Hormann
La Leche League of Germany originally published this book to support the desire of adoptive mothers and mothers relactating to breastfeed their babies. We do not believe that the success of a breastfeeding relationship should be judged by the amount of milk produced, but rather by the mutual trust that develops between a mother and her child as a result of the closeness involved in breastfeeding. What we know about relactation and induced lactation is a work in progress and you are a part of it. Our fervent wish is that you and your baby have a breastfeeding relationship that is satisfying for both of you, regardless of how you achieve that goal.
This book is primarily for adoptive parents and relactating mothers, but it was also written for all those who work with these parents and are involved in breastfeeding counseling. La Leche League is an internationally recognized not-for-profit organization that is active in more than 63 countries with about 7000 volunteer LLL Leaders. It was founded to provide encouragement and information to mothers who want to breastfeed their babies.
An LLL Leader is specially trained by La Leche League to support mothers through regular Group meetings and through telephone counseling. She is available to parents during the entire breastfeeding period and offers both emotional support and practical help when there are difficulties. You can get in touch with an LLL Leader via the national La Leche League addresses, through the international hotline, or via the Internet at www.llli.org.

Good book. Super short. A little dated compared to what you can learn on line re the same topic. Probably wouldn't have purchased since I gathered more information from on line sources and a lactation consultant.
