Great Expectations: The Essential Guide to Breastfeeding
In Great Expectations: The Essential Guide to Breastfeeding, Marianne Neifert, MD, one of America’s leading pediatricians and a nationally recognized lactation consultant, gives nursing mothers all the advice they need to breastfeed their babies successfully. Distilled from Dr. Mom’s Guide to Breastfeeding, this is the most up-to-date, comprehensive, and effective book on the subject. Neifert has spent the last 25 years addressing the situations that nursing mothers routinely encounter; her sound, reassuring, and practical advice makes this a must-have for all new moms and mothers-to-be.
Marianne Neifert, MD, also known as Dr. Mom(R), is a well- known pediatrician, author of parenting books, and a nationally recognized breastfeeding expert. She is a co-founder of The Lactation Program in Denver, one of the nation’s first specialty breastfeeding clinics. The author of Dr. Mom’s Guide to Breastfeeding (Plume, 1998) and other child-rearing books and articles, Dr. Mom also educates parents through speaking engagements, media appearances, and articles in parenting magazines. She has been a guest on numerous national television programs, including Today, Good Morning America, The Early Show, and 20/20.
"...combines detailed, readable medical explanations with practical tips for success and addresses potential challenges honestly rather than glossing over them with bland reassurances. Each chapter seems designed to stand alone, making it easy for time-pressed mother to find the information they need...provides medically sound information to help women breastfeed successfully, as well as clear but gentle and supportive encouragement to breastfeed. Highly recommended for all new and expecting parents considering breastfeeding." -- Library Journal
