Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Well-known pediatrician Neifert (Dr. Mom's Guide to Breastfeeding; Dr. Mom's Prescription for Preschoolers) covers breast-feeding basics, from preparing before birth through the early weeks of parenthood. In sub-sequent chapters, she provides information on expressing milk, coping with common problems, breast-feeding while working (an especially well-done section), and breastfeeding in special situations (e.g., illnesses in mother and baby, birth defects, breast-feeding multiples). The author combines detailed, readable medical explanations with practical tips for success and addresses potential challenges honestly rather than glossing over them with bland reassurances. Each chapter seems designed to stand alone, making it easy for time-pressed mothers to find the information they need without reading the entire book. VERDICT New moms can find lots of literature on breast-feeding, but often it is too general or too judgmental to be useful. Neifert, however, provides medically sound information to help women breast-feed successfully, as well as clear but gentle and supportive encouragement to breastfeed. Highly recommended for all new and expecting parents considering breast-feeding. (Illustrations and index not seen.)—Janet A. Crum, Oregon Health & Science Univ. Lib., Portland
