The Nursing Mother's Problem Solver by Claire Martin, Martha Sears

Finally! Answers to your most urgent questions in an easy-to-use format!
Based on questions posed by thousands of real mothers, this A-to-Z guide has a practical, realistic view of how nursing fits into a modern woman's life.
First-time mothers and breastfeeding veterans will find answers to more than 300 questions — from the most common to the most particular.

  • How to know the effect of what you eat and drink on your breastmilk — from antihistamines and antidepressants to spicy food, wine, or caffeine
  • How to use natural remedies like fennel tea, cabbage leaves, and brewer's yeast to combat your own and your baby's discomforts
  • How to accommodate your child's particular nursing style, be she fussy, sleepy, overeager, or uninterested
  • How to breastfeed children with special needs — like a cleft palate and Down's syndrome — as well as adopted babies and twins

Cross-referenced for easy, immediate access to information, supplemented with listings of resources such as videos, Web sites, and support groups, this volume is the most comprehensive collection of nursing advice available.

I am analytical in nature and found this book to answer almost all of my questions and concerns no matter how off the wall they were. It was very easy to instantly find the topic of concern with the A-Z guide so it saved time and anxiety. This is a book I advise to all of my friends who are looking to breastfeed and have found it to be a great shower gift as well...It is to the point- not preachy or pushy and not 'sugarcoated'.

I gave this as a shower gift to my nervous, new mom, daughter in law. It helped her so much in answering questions & giving support. Having the book handy, let her find accurate information any time in the privacy of her own home. She & her husband found it a good starting place for dialogue about the challenges of a nursing mother. A great gift!

I rented this book from the library for questions and answers on breastfeeding, and it was excellent. Now I am trying to buy it! It has answers to lots of questions with a great helpful index in the back of the book!This would be great for a new Breastfeeding other or for a gift or for a second time mother!
