Breastfeeding is really one of those wonders of nature even though we mostly take it for granted. This is an experience between a mother and her child that involves the child’s nutrition and protection from certain childhood diseases but also from diseases they would otherwise develop later on in life if they were not breastfed.

In addition to being their food source however, breastfeeding is also a source or emotional security and comfort for the child and as such, the weaning process has to be gradual rather than abrupt as an abrupt end to breastfeed will more than likely have a negative impact on both the child as well as the mother.

Breastfeeding is also a great way in which a woman can lose the weight she gained during pregnancy. In fact, a woman who is breastfeeding will lose a lot more weight than her counterpart who is not breastfeeding or not doing so exclusively until her child gets to the six month stage of his or her life.

Breastfeeding does not mean that a woman will always lose interest in sexual intercourse with her partner. Admittedly, there are some factors that will cause a breastfeeding woman to have a lessened libido such as being tired all the time and because of vaginal dryness due to the lack of ovulation. There are a significant number of women who are still quite sexually active while they are breastfeeding, but it is imperative that their partner be understanding and realize that their breastfeeding partner may not always want to have sex even though they do enjoy having sex. It just takes love and understanding to make it work for both the mother and her partner.

Meet the Author

Debra Ann Shanahan is a mother but she is a mother who have never had the experience of breastfeeding none of her three children as for some reason she was not able to produce enough milk to be able to effectively nourish her babies.

She has always regretted not having that great bonding experience with her children and therefore made it her mission to write about all the possible aspects of the breastfeeding process so as to give expectant and new mothers all the information they need to make them enjoy and recognize the importance of their breastfeeding experience with their baby, in the way she never got to do herself.

Not only has it given her at least some degree of satisfaction to do research having to do with the joys of breastfeeding, but she has the distinct pleasure of having new and worried mothers tell her how very helpful her book was in them breastfeeding their child and having the optimal experience in doing so. She now works as a lay person in shelters as well as with teenagers and other women who are in their final trimester; teaching them about all they need to know about breastfeeding.

She is proud of the fact that her book is helping to answer all the questions that expecting and new mothers have and helping to quell their fears by giving step to step instructions as well as great tips that they would have had to search all over to find otherwise.

Being a woman of faith, she firmly believes that not being able to suckle her precious babies at her own breasts was a blessing in disguise as now she is passionate about making sure that those who are fortunate enough to experience this wonderful time with their baby.
