The perfect resource for the variety of situations commonly encountered by those working with lactating and breastfeeding mothers and their babies.
Conveniently organized by the issue that the healthcare provider will meet, it helps caregivers quickly resolve key challenges, such as babies who aren’t gaining weight fast enough, mothers with sore nipples, and basic sucking problems.
Quick-reference charts, algorithms, and diagrams assist the caregiver in quickly determining whether they have assessed the situation correctly. Designed for use by an interdisciplinary array of caregivers in practice settings, the second edition contains updated references, new evidence-based strategies for problem resolution, and a user-friendly appendix.
