This accessible and authoritative guide to breastfeeding has been trusted by new parents and recommended by professionals for more than two decades. Kathleen Huggins has extensively revised and updated this 25th anniversary edition to equip nursing mothers with all the information they need to overcome difficulties and nurse their babies successfully from the first week all the way to the toddler years, or somewhere in between. Now more than ever, The Nursing Mother's Companion is an indispensable handbook for every new mother.

Breastfeeding is natural, but it is not entirely instinctive for either mothers or babies. The 25th anniversary edition of this classic handbook is now more comprehensive than ever, with "Survival Guides" for problem solving, a new chapter just about breast pumps and pumping, new growth charts specifically for breastfed babies, and an up-to-date appendix on the safety of various drugs during breastfeeding.

From preparations during pregnancy through weaning, The Nursing Mother's Companion will tell you everything you need to know about nursing your baby.
