If you’ve not had a chance to take a breastfeeding class while you’re pregnant, or you went to a class and still have questions, or you just had a baby and are thinking…now what, this book is for you.
Ann Bennett has been an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant since 2003. She also nursed her own boys, so she can relate with the whirlwind of new motherhood. And while she loves her job and feels it is why God put her on the planet, she kept hearing the Moms in her care say same thing over and over again, Why did no one tell me this?
Reading this book will help you avoid some of the common and fixable things that happen during the early weeks. You will learn the basics and get the support and encouragement you need to get breastfeeding off to a good start.
You will get all of the tips and tricks to get you over any speed bumps of the first two weeks:
*Know what to expect in the early days.
*Be able to identify normal vs. needs attention.
*Get the facts about breastfeeding without being overwhelmed with every possible problem that could arise.
*Avoid all the non-research based advice that’s all over the internet.
*Give you a laugh or two as you read it.
This book will get you off to a good start and save you from sifting through a ton of other information. There is a lot to do when you are getting ready for a new baby and your schedule may not allow time for an in person weekend breastfeeding class. This is a quick read that you can pick up when it’s convenient and be ready to get nursing started as if you had gone to an all-day class on breastfeeding.
So, pull up your cozy chair, get some chocolate and get ready to laugh and learn! This book is like having a chat with your best friend who has been there, done that, and has all the experience and the research to back it up.
