The Complete Book of Breastfeeding is a recognized classic in its field. Now it's been completely revised and updated in a new fourth edition-non-doctrinaire, informative, and friendly, it is the most accessible and authoritative book, as much required reading for expecting and new mothers as a pregnancy guide and baby name book. All healthy mothers should consider breastfeeding for the first year of a baby's life, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics, and this is the book that will help women give their babies the healthiest start possible. New data about preterm infants is presented, and special situations-multiples, breast cancer, overweight and large-breasted women, breast surgery, tattoos and piercings-are also discussed in detail. An expanded chapter on weaning features sections on breastfeeding past infancy. Also new is an appendix of online resources. Paperback. 432 pages.
