Breastfeeding is undoubtedly the natural and healthy way to nourish your baby, but it is neither always easy nor instinctive. Mothers often lack the knowledge and support they need for trouble-free breastfeeding. Breastfeed your baby is a complete but concise, practical guide for nursing mothers. The information is based on the most recent research in the field, and since it is evidence-based, it will also be invaluable to doctors, nursing staff, antenatal professionals and doulas - everyone assisting women during the intra-partum period. The information is authoritative and presented in such a way that the book can be read in one or two sittings before the baby's birth, yet detailed enough to remain an essential companion throughout the breastfeeding process. Each chapter starts with ten top tips on the theme, and the content is enhanced throughout with practical hints and tips. Case histories scattered throughout add to the level of practicality and will help mothers realize that they are not alone if they struggle. Chapters include: Why breastfeed; Preparing for breastfeeding; The mechanics of breastfeeding; The best start (latching, ensuring good milk supply); Preventing and solving problems; Baby at home; Back to work (breastfeeding in absentia, pumps and other aids); Nursing an older baby; When to wean; Breastfeeding in special circumstances. The book also contains contact details for lactation specialists and La Leche League groups throughout the country so nursing mothers will know where to find help if they struggle.

Borsvoeding is ongetwyfeld die natuurlikste en gesondste manier om jou baba te voed, maar dis nie noodwendig altyd instinktief of maklik nie. Ma's het dikwels nie die nodige kennis en ondersteuning om kommerloos te borsvoed nie en daarvoor is hierdie boek die antwoord. Dit is 'n volledige, maar kompakte praktiese gids vir ma's wat borsvoed. Die jongste navorsing op die gebied word in die inhoud weerspieel, en omdat die boek op 'n sterk feitebasis berus, sal dit ook van onskatbare waarde wees vir dokters, verpleegpersoneel, voorgeboortelike begeleiers en doulas - enigiemand wat vroue voor, tydens en na die geboorte bystaan. Die inligting is gesaghebbend en bondig genoeg aangebied dat die boek voor baba se geboorte in een of twee sessies deurgelees kan word, maar met genoeg detail om gedurende die borsvoedproses ma se borsvoedbybel te wees. Elke hoofstuk skop af met tien top-wenke oor die tema, en die inhoud word deurgaans aangevul met praktiese wenke en voorstelle. Uittreksels uit gevallestudies word deurgaans gebruik, en hou die trant prakties terwyl dit ma's ook gerusstel dat hulle nie alleen is as hulle sukkel nie. Die onderskeie hoofstukke dek die volgende: Hoekom borsvoed; Voorbereiding vir borsvoeding; Hoe borsvoeding werk; Die beste begin (suiggreep en genoeg melk); Voorkoming en hantering van probleme; 'n Baba in die huis; Terug werk toe (borsvoed wanneer jy nie daar is nie: pompe en ander hulpmiddels); Die ouer baba; Wanneer om te speen; Borsvoeding in spesiale omstandighede. Daar is ook 'n lys name en kontakbesonderhede van laktasiespesialiste en La Leche-groepe regdeur die land sodat ma's wat borsvoed sal weet waar om hulp te soek as hulle sukkel.

How often does my baby really need to feed? How do I know my baby is getting enough? Is it normal for my baby to wake at night? When you're expecting a new baby, suddenly everyone around you becomes an expert - particularly when it comes to how to feed them. It is easy to become overwhelmed by conflicting advice, myths and exaggerated stories. The Positive Breastfeeding Book cuts through the anecdotes, giving you clear, no-judgement, non-preachy, evidence-based information to help you make the right decisions for you and your baby. It will help you understand how breastfeeding works, and supports you in developing strategies to make sure that whilst you're looking after the baby, you're getting taken care of too. Jam-packed with everything you ever wanted to know about breastfeeding (and a whole lot you never knew you did!), it will take you through tips for planning for your baby's arrival, coping with those early months, and knowing what to do and where to seek help if challenges come up. It will guide you through feeding in public, going back to work, and even rediscovering a glass of wine. You'll find plenty of real stories and guidance throughout from mothers and experts in supporting breastfeeding. There are handy chapters on formula and mixed feeding, which cut through advertising spiel and give you the facts you need to choose and use formula safely. The Positive Breastfeeding Book doesn't promise to make it easy, nor will it get up in the middle of the night for you, but it will empower you with the knowledge and encouragement you need to feed your baby with confidence.

From the author of She Left Me The Gun, an explosive and hilarious memoir about the exceptional and life-changing decision to conceive a child on one's own via assisted reproduction

When British journalist, memoirist, and New York-transplant Emma Brockes decides to become pregnant, she quickly realizes that, being single, 37, and in the early stages of a same-sex relationship, she's going to have to be untraditional about it. From the moment she decides to stop "futzing" around, have her eggs counted, and "get cracking"; through multiple trials of IUI, which she is intrigued to learn can be purchased in bulk packages, just like Costco; to the births of her twins, which her girlfriend gamely documents with her iPhone and selfie-stick, Brockes is never any less than bluntly and bracingly honest about her extraordinary journey to motherhood.

She quizzes her friends on the pros and cons of personally knowing one's sperm donor, grapples with esoteric medical jargon and the existential brain-melt of flipping through donor catalogues and conjures with the politics of her Libertarian OB/GYN—all the while exploring the cultural circumstances and choices that have brought her to this point. Brockes writes with charming self-effacing humor about being a British woman undergoing fertility treatment in the US, poking fun at the starkly different attitude of Americans. Anxious that biological children might not be possible, she wonders, should she resent society for how it regards and treats women who try and fail to have children?

Brockes deftly uses her own story to examine how and why an increasing number of women are using fertility treatments in order to become parents—and are doing it solo. Bringing the reader every step of the way with mordant wit and remarkable candor, Brockes shares the frustrations, embarrassments, surprises, and, finally, joys of her momentous and excellent choice.
