Breastfeeding is a major public health issue. Breast milk provides all the nutrients a baby needs for their first six months. Research studies also show that breastfeeding doesn't just help to protect infants from infection, but has other benefits such as reducing obesity and can help protect mothers from some diseases in later life.

Breastfeeding rates are low, however, and women need the support of their midwives and health visitors when beginning breastfeeding and throughout their child's infancy. This This evidence-based new edition addresses all the updated UNICEF UK BFI Best Practice Standards for Higher Education Institutions outcomes to ensure that students are equipped with the essential knowledge and skills to effectively promote and support breastfeeding mothers. It discusses:

  • anatomy and physiology;
  • the importance of buidling strong relationships;
  • essential skills and good practice guidance;
  • dealing with common problems;
  • public health considerations;
  • babies and mothers with special needs;
  • complementary feeding.

Suitable for both pre-registration midwifery students and health professionals undertaking continuing professional development, Evidence-based Care for Breastfeeding Mothers is designed to aid learning. The chapters include specific learning outcomes linked to the Baby Friendly standards, key fact boxes, clinical scenarios and activities.

It's natural...It's unsightly...It's normal...It's dangerous. To breastfeed or not? For millions of women around the world, this personal decision is influenced by numerous social, cultural, and health factors. Infant Feeding Practices is the first book to delve into these factors from a global perspective, revealing striking similarities and differences from country to country. Dispatches from Asia, Australia, Africa, the U.K., and the U.S. explore as wide a gamut of salient issues affecting feeding practices as traditional beliefs about colostrums, "breast is best" campaigns, partner attitudes, workplace culture, direct government intervention, and the pressure to be a "good mother." Throughout these informative pages, women are seen balancing innovation and tradition to nurture healthy, thriving babies. A sampling of topics covered: * Policy versus practice in infant feeding. * Infant feeding in the age of AIDS. * Managing the lactating body: the view from the U.S. * Motherhood, work, and feeding. * The effects of migration on infant feeding. * From breastfeeding tradition to optimal breastfeeding practice. Infant Feeding Practices is a first-of-its-kind resource for researchers and practioners in maternal and child health, public health, global health, and cultural anthropology seeking empirical findings and culturally diverse information on this sensitive issue.


Breastfeeding Is A Bitch

We cheer "Breastfeeding! Yay!" on social media, and around our female friends with feminist pride. But at 3 a.m. you may be cudgeling yourself with, "Oh, dear god, what have we done?" Intellectually, we all know it's better for our babies, and instinctually, many of us want to do it. But our pregnant daydreaming does little to prepare us for the pain, frustration, self-judgment, and fear that we may experience by choosing to breastfeed. Breastfeeding can be all angels and rainbows. But more often it is an unlatching baby screaming at you, cracked nipples that feel like they're being held in a vice-grip and licked by a cat, 3 a.m. freak-outs, explosively painful engorged boobs, flu-like mastitis. And then there's pumping. And that is why, even considering breastfeeding makes you a saint. We tell ourselves that breastfeeding is natural, and therefore we should all be able to do it. While it is natural, it is not easy. This book is for every woman who found the truth of breastfeeding to be somewhat askew from her pre-baby fantasies, and for every woman who does not want to be taken by surprise by the latch - or lack there of. This book is not intended for diagnosis, but for entertainment and commiseration. Includes topics like: Latching onto Latching Screaming at the Breast Nursing Mothers Do it in Groups The Good, the Bad and the Ugly of Pumping Woman vs the Cover And Then There Were Teeth The Bottle Battle Mastitis, Engorgement and Other Pains in the Boob
