Publisher's Summary

The definitive guide to breastfeeding your baby

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.

This second edition of Breastfeeding Made Simple is an essential guide to breastfeeding that every new and expectant mom should own - a comprehensive resource that takes the mystery out of basic breastfeeding dynamics. 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.

Breastfeeding Made Simple will help you to:

  • Find comfortable, relaxing breastfeeding positions
  • Establish ample milk production and a satisfying breastfeeding rhythm with your baby
  • Overcome discomfort and mastitis
  • Use a breast pump to express and store milk
  • Easily transition to solid foods

Critic Reviews

"I recommend this groundbreaking book to all my clients." (Diane Wiessinger, MS, IBCLC)

"I fell in love with this book; every page is a jewel. It simply ‘delivers’ what every mother needs - the natural laws to build a breastfeeding relationship. Understanding the first 40 days has changed the way I talk to new parents and teach breastfeeding supporters. Finally, here is a book that talks about breastfeeding without all the rules. This book lives in my bag to share with everyone!" (Carrie Finger, BFA, IBCLC, LCCE, Lactation Program Director at Aviva Institute)

A lot of information

I had hard time getting into and finishing this book. As an experienced breastfeeding mother and a Lactation educator this seems like a lot of information to be given to a new mom. It would seem overwhelming to try to comprehend and understand all the breastfeeding information given.

grating voice

I couldn't even get through the first chapter due to the readers voice hurting my ears. Every time she says a word with an S in is she whistles super high pitched and its awful. I bought the actual book and love the content however.

informative

Definitely some good information. Very informative but lots of repetition. Worth listening to the audio book takes about a day to get through.

Invaluable tool for mothers and their supporters

This is an excellent tool for all mothers, or those working with families, to guide to breastfeeding goals. The trouble shooting and myth busting is incredibly helpful for anyone battling with out of date approaches.
