well written, but what about breastfeeding? 10 Aug. 2007
By Mary Herrington - Published on
Format: Paperback
As a Lactation Consultant, I looked forward to reading this book to learn about ways to manage feeding difficulties. This book is very easy to read and contains excellent illustrations and explanations of a vast array of oral motor functioning issues. However, I was disappointed to see that bottlefeeding was virtually the only feeding method discussed. There were rare to none examples of ways to manage breastfeeding difficulties or enhance an infants functioning at the breast. Also, when bottlefeeding was discussed, it was virtually always assumed that formula was being fed and expressed breastmilk was rarely mentioned as an option. I work with some moms whose infants have feeding difficulties due to congenital conditions/prematurity. Many of these women pump breastmilk to provide for their infants and are dedicated to attempt to get their babies directly breastfeeding. What these women and their babies deserve is for specialists like Wolf, etc. to devote their expertise to develop tools and therapies that support compromised infants in breastfeeding directly instead of assuming bottlefeeding as the "norm" for these special babies.

Excellent resource for pediatric therapist 11 Feb. 2013
By K. eckis - Published on
Format: Paperback
When I read the other review, I felt it necessary to write my review. Although this book does not highlight using breast milk in place of formula, there is an entire chapter on breastfeeding. Additionally, this book is an excellent resource for therapist working in the NICU. It offers a wealth of knowledge on feeding techniques, supplies, and the physiology of nippling/SSB, just to name a few. So this book deserves five stars in my opinion as it is thorough and truly is one of the better books I have read on infant feeding.
