Nursing Mother’s Companion

NursMothComp5fullA quarter century after its first printing, The Nursing Mother’s Companion by Kathleen Huggins remains the most trusted book in its field. More than one million copies have been sold, and countless parents have been comforted and encouraged by its accessible style.

While breastfeeding is natural, it is not entirely instinctive for either mothers or babies. In its sixth edition, this classic handbook is 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.

Parenting magazine declares The Nursing Mother’s Companion “. . . an excellent book, particularly for first-time nursers.”

This title is also available in a Spanish language edition, El libro esencial para madres lactantes.
