This is THE reference text for lactation consultants. In its third edition, the text has been updated to reflect new knowledge in the physiology of breastfeeding, milk supply, positioning, the management of breastfeeding, and the role of the lactation consultant. The text is divided into 5 sections that cover the sociocultural context of infant feeding, anatomy and biological imperatives, the prenatal, perinatal and postnatal periods, beyond postpartum, and contemporary issues. It is accompanied by a CD-ROM and color insert, both of which accurately depict positioning, the normal breast, and breastfeeding problems.
