Book Description

30 July 2010
"Most health professionals believe that mothers need to be taught how to breastfeed. An Introduction to Biological Nurturing describes new research evidence suggesting that mothers and babies innately know how to breastfeed, and introduces a new approach called biological nurturing. Biological nurturing is a collective term for optimal breastfeeding states and positions whose interaction release spontaneous behaviours helping mothers and babies get started with feeding. Biological nurturing is quick and easy to do. Most moms and babies automatically move into the correct positions if left on their own. The challenge for health professionals lies with understanding the releasing mechanisms and learning how to help mothers and babies do what comes naturally. This book restores
confidence in nature's biological design and in mothers' innate capacity to breastfeed."

4.0 out of 5 stars Great info...could definitely do without the evolution! 16 May 2013
By Deborah Foss - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Being a lactation consultant, I try to get my hands on whatever I can to increase my knowledge of breastfeeding so that I can help more moms be successful. I had been introduced to "biological nurturing" when I was studying to sit for the exam. I am a Christian, and I truly believe that we are "wonderfully made" by God's perfect design. I have been a nurse for 35 years, and I have seen many things during that time. The more I learn, the more I realize how impossible evolution is! Yes, I believe in biological nurturing, but from God's viewpoint. We were designed to breastfeed and to be breastfed. There is nothing more amazing to me than to see that connection between a baby and a mother, especially when that baby latches so perfectly in that first hour after birth. It is a miraculous thing! This book has great information to help learn how marvelous our bodies were created to give birth and nurture our babies at the breast.
5.0 out of 5 stars Breastfeeding as a normal and enjoyable activity of daily living 3 Jun 2012
By Mother Knows - Published on
In our modern world, breastfeeding our children has become an obstacle course of rules, gadgets, misinformation, judgement, and separation. This excellent book describes a research-based, practical way to return breastfeeding to the normal, dynamic, and comfortable activity of daily living it was always meant to be. The author clearly shows that there is not one "correct" way to breastfeed. Written by a scientist who is also a mother, the descriptions, photographs, research findings, and no-nonsense wisdom in Suzanne Colson's slim volume can be useful for pregnant women, mothers, family and friends, and professionals whose job it is to help mothers. All can learn about Biological Nurturing (BN) and how the innate abilities and reflexes of mothers and babies can be released to make learning to breastfeed a pleasure. As Dr. Colson says in Chapter 1: .."BN is as quick and easy to do as picking up a baby."

5.0 out of 5 stars A new approach to an age-old practice 18 April 2012
By LC in Wilmington - Published on
Suzanne is first and foremost a scientist - through her observations, which she shares in this book, we rediscover how babies and mothers both have innate reflexes that are released with the right elements of positioning, infant and maternal states and hormones. Suzanne makes breastfeeding fun and easy again, making us question 'the way we've always done it' . If you work with new mothers and babies, you must add this to your library!
