Why do so many new mothers quit or abandon breastfeeding their new babies in those first few days, weeks, or months after delivery?
Rose deVigne-Jackiewicz, one of the leading lactation consultants in San Diego, California, offers the information you need to understand how newborn babies nurse in the first few days after birth. Some babies seem to have studied how to breastfeed and are pros from the beginning, while others need a bit more "tutoring" to learn how to nurse correctly. DeVigne-Jackiewicz discusses such situations as well as the basics of breastfeeding in Breastfeeding Basics: A Lactation Consultant's Advice for Breastfeeding during Your Hospital Stay.
Learning about breastfeeding isn't always high on a new mother's priority list. Many mothers believe breastfeeding to be natural and instinctive. While it is natural, it isn't always instinctive. With step-by-step directions and photos, you can learn how to begin breastfeeding your new baby, creating a cherished bond between you and your child.
