Great Expectations: The Essential Guide to Breastfeeding

by Marianne Neifert



Barnes and Noble Indiebound

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.


"...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
