Breastfeeding Made Simple: Seven Natural Laws for Nursing Mothers


Breastfeeding is natural, but it's not always easy. It is the biological norm, but it is not the cultural norm. By learning the seven basic principles in this book, mothers can dramatically increase their likelihood of success and make breastfeeding the enjoyable experience it should be. The seven laws taught in Breast Feeding Made Simple are easy for mothers to understand and are sure to help them avoid some of the pitfalls that they might otherwise face.

The seven principles include: Babies Have the Urge to Self-Attach
Use the Power of Skin-to-Skin: A Baby's Natural Habitat
Breastfeed Ad Lib
Reach for the Comfort Zone
Expect Cluster Nursing
More Milk Out = More Milk Made
Babies Outgrow Breastfeeding
The book also addresses how to solve common problems and deal with special situations such as breast reductions and babies with special needs. The authors describe some of the social, psychological, and cultural reasons why breastfeeding is not currently the norm, and what this implies for mothers. In all, this is an easy-to-use breastfeeding resource for new mothers, which includes all the latest research and techniques used by those in the lactation field.
