Editorial Reviews

Jo Peer-Haas
According to Huggins and Ziedrich, weaning babies very early has been a practice in patriarchal cultures throughout history. In this follow-up to Huggins' popular, recently revised "Nursing Mother's Companion", the authors take a pro nursing stance, attacking problems that often prevent babies from nursing as long as they could. The book goes beyond the usual how-to approach, beginning with a fascinating (and telling) history of weaning in Western societies. The main text is a year-by-year discussion on making breast-feeding successful, despite the roadblocks that appear as babies grow. Weaning in positive ways, no matter what the baby's age, is encouraged; and there is even a daring presentation of the downside of formula feeding. Aimed especially at mothers tempted to wean before their children are really ready, the advice given is wise, practical, and baby-friendly--a nice touch. Because all nursing mothers reach the point where they need information on stopping, and support for breast-feeding is so lacking, "The Nursing Mother's Guide" would be an important addition to parenting titles.
