Brilliant Breastfeeding takes the stress out of all parts of breastfeeding your baby, from the vital skin-to-skin first feed, to returning to work.
It is more than a manual to arm breastfeeding mothers with the most up-to-date information and strategies for every possible scenario—it is a non-judgemental friend to help you to sit back and enjoy a unique time of loving and bonding.
Jo Gilpin’s extensive experience as a midwife and lactation consultant, along with her friendly, readable tone, make this a unique and comprehensive book.
"Brilliant Breastfeeding is much more than a book on breastfeeding—it hits all the right points about the important issues in the early months with the new baby." Dr Howard Chilton, Neonatal Paediatrician.
Breastfeeding may be natural, but it may also be more challenging than you expect. Some mothers encounter doubts and difficulties, from struggling with the first few feedings to finding a gentle and loving way to comfortably wean from the breast.

Understanding the seven natural laws of breastfeeding will help you avoid and overcome challenges such as low milk production, breast refusal, weaning difficulties, and every other obstacle that can keep you from enjoying breastfeeding your baby.
