Brilliant Breastfeeding: A Sensible Guide

Open Book Howden
Free sample

Brilliant Breastfeeding is essential reading for every mother or mother-to-be. It is a book to share with partners and supporters because it empowers readers with knowledge and confidence.

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.

From the Trade Paperback edition.
†‹Respected for over 30 years as the definitive guide, now more than ever, The Nursing Mother's Companion is the go-to guide every new mother should have at hand.

Breastfeeding is natural, but it is not always instinctive for either mothers or babies. The Nursing Mother's Companion has been among the best-selling books on breastfeeding for more than 30 years, with more than 1 million copies sold. It is respected and recommended by professionals, including The International Lactation Consultant Association, T. Berry Brazelton and The American Academy of Pediatrics, and is well loved by new parents for its encouraging and accessible style.

Kathleen Huggins equips breastfeeding mothers all the information they need to overcome potential difficulties and nurse their babies successfully from the first week through the toddler years, or somewhere in between.

This fully updated and revised edition provides information on topics such as:

Benefits of breastfeedingHow to cope with breastfeeding obstacles and challengesIncorporating a nursing routine into working lifeTreating postpartum headaches and nauseaNutritional supplements to alleviate postpartum depressionSharing a bed with baby (co-sleeping) and the risk of SIDSIntroducing solid foodsExpressing, storing, and feeding breast milkReviews of breast pumps

You will also find Huggins's indispensable problem-solving "survival guides" set off by colored bands on the pages for quick reference, as well as appendices on determining baby's milk needs in the first six weeks and the safety of various drugs during breast-feeding.

Plus, this edition opens with a new Foreword by Jessica Martin-Weber, creator of the very popular website The Leaky Boob and a new Preface by Kelly Bonata, creator of the go-to site KellyMom. These two much-loved authorities speak to the importance of owning an authoritative breastfeeding book that cuts through the jumble of opinions, information and misinformation on the Web.
