Overview

Breastfeeding is natural, but it's not always easy.  It is the biological norm, but it is not the cultural norm. By learning the seven basic principles in this book, mothers can dramatically increase their likelihood of success and make breastfeeding the enjoyable experience it should be. The seven laws taught in this book are easy for mothers to understand and are sure to help them avoid some of the pitfalls that they might otherwise face.

The seven principles include:
· Babies Have the Urge to Self-Attach
· Use the Power of Skin-to-Skin: A Baby's Natural Habitat
· Breastfeed Ad Lib
· Reach for the Comfort Zone
· Expect Cluster Nursing
· More Milk Out = More Milk Made
· Babies Outgrow Breastfeeding

The book also addresses how to solve common problems and deal with special situations such as breast reductions and babies with special needs. The authors describe some of the social, psychological, and cultural reasons why breastfeeding is not currently the norm, and what this implies for mothers. In all, this is an easy-to-use breastfeeding resource for new mothers, which includes all the latest research and techniques used by those in the lactation field.

Two breastfeeding specialists team up to provide new mothers with a set of seven basic principles-representing the most up-to-date information in the field-that lead to successful breastfeeding.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"I recommend this groundbreaking book to all my clients."
—Diane Wiessinger, MS, IBCLC

"I fell in love with this book; every page is a jewel. It simply ‘delivers’ what every mother needs—the natural laws to build a breastfeeding relationship. Understanding the first forty days has changed the way I talk to new parents and teach breastfeeding supporters. Finally, here is a book that talks about breastfeeding without all the rules. This book lives in my bag to share with everyone!"
—Carrie Finger, BFA, IBCLC, LCCE, lactation program director at Aviva Institute
