Editorial Reviews

Fit Pregnancy
Praise for the first edition: Full of practical hints on overcoming social and workplace obstacles to breastfeeding.
Library Journal

In this welcome revision of a 1997 title, Pryor (Nursing Your Baby) and Huggins (The Nursing Mother's Companion) supply a wealth of updated information on legal rights in the workplace, breast pumps, and the basics of expressing, storing, and feeding breast milk. Women planning on returning to paid work will find excellent advice to make breastfeeding a long-term reality even if mother and baby are separated for many hours of the day. The breastfeeding techniques and especially the exacting logistics (e.g., the number of times and the time of day to pump, how many ounces to expect) will greatly assist new mothers. The completeness of the information--the updated resource list includes web sites, rental information, and support groups--makes this an essential read for women committed to both nursing and resuming employment outside of the home. Libraries owning the 1997 edition will want to update, and all others should purchase the new edition. Highly recommended. (Illustrations not seen.)
