The ABCs of Breastfeeding: Everything a Mom Needs to Know for a Happy Nursing Experience by Stacey H. RUBIN

La Leche League approves The ABCs of Breastfeeing for their store!
For the new mom and her baby, breastfeeding provides countless physical and emotional benefits. Breast milk provides proper nourishment, helps strengthen a baby's immune system, and deepens the mother-child bond. However, breastfeeding doesn't always happen as naturally as one might expect. As a Neonatal Practitioner and Board Certified Lactation Consultant (and mother of two), Stacey H. Rubin knows the difficulties new moms can experience. Now, in The ABCs of Breastfeeding, she offers a practical and reader-friendly guide that will help every new mother feel comfortable and confident about feeding her baby. From pregnancy to weaning, this helpful book will show nursing mothers how to:

find a doctor who is breastfeeding-friendly • hold their baby comfortably after birth • recognize the signs that a baby wants to be fed • take necessary steps that will prevent breastfeeding difficulties • build a healthy milk supply • manage the right diet • continue breastfeeding immediately after returning to work • know when to stop breastfeeding

Illustrated with real-life stories from the author's own private practice of women who have overcome common and not-so-common breastfeeding difficulties, The ABCs of Breastfeeding will help expectant and new mothers turn their nursing experiences into a joyful one-for themselves and their new babies.

I came across this book while breastfeeding my third child and I wish I had found it sooner! The real life examples make moms realize that they are not alone in any problem they might experience. There's also a lot of practical advice, including how to deal with hospital staff, doctors, and family and friends who might not be completely supportive of nursing.
This will definitely be on my gift list for new moms-to-be!

This book was perfect for me - a clueless first time mom-to-be who was unsure and scared about breastfeeding. It really brought to light for me the benefits of breastfeeding and the beautiful bond that can be built between mother and child. The real life stories were great and I can't wait to become a breastfeeding mom now. I also had my husband read select chapters so he will understand what I will be going through and know how he can best provide support. Highly recommend this book.
