This is a comprehensive and practical guide to all aspects of breastfeeding babies with special care needs. The language is clear and direct and the references up to date. The author covers the basics of breastfeeding and lactation, positioning and attachment, milk supply, the impact of common drugs, as well as breast conditions and problems and their resolution. Particular attention is paid to feeding the vulnerable baby and to alternative methods of feeding.


"This is a text which will no doubt be accessed principally by midwives and neonatal nurses, but the successful establishment and maintenance of breastfeeding is far more likely to prosper when all health care providers are singing from the same hymn sheet, and I would strongly commend that it is read by all those who involved in the process including paediatricians, health visitors, GP s and paediatric nurses and others."www.withwoman.co.uk
