Description - Breastfeeding For Dummies by S. Perkins

Practical nursing advice and solutions for today's new mothersThe American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that women breastfeed their babies for the first six months. Yet two-thirds of American women who start out breastfeeding (out of the 59 percent who attempt it) quit before the half-year mark. This savvy guide, by two nurses who between them have breastfed ten babies, gives new moms the know-how they need to go the distance. From how to tell if baby is getting enough milk to how to manage breastfeeding if you're a working mom, the book is packed with authoritative, reassuring guidance that shows how to solve common (and not so common) breastfeeding challenges and make sure babies enjoy the benefits of breast milk. Sharon Perkins, RN (Medford, NJ), is a Nurse Coordinator for IVF at a major fertility clinic and coauthor of Fertility For Dummies. Carol Vannais, RN (Shamong, NJ), is a certified childbirth instructor.
