I did order this book through Amazon and it is well worth the wait - just over 2wks. I could not recommend this book more.

I had breast-feeding problems since my son was 3wks old after an operation for Pyloric Stenosis. The hospital staff warned me that I may find that he will get colic proceeding the op and they were right!
My son was very unsettled at the breast and this went on for a number of wks. He was gaining weight though after 7wks (recovery time) but the feedings took ages (over an hour) and I always had to use a dummy to calm him during the feeds and some feeds I had to give formula as he would not feed at all.

Much to my distress, at 3mths my son refused the breast so I contacted the NCT and spoke to two Councellors and although well-meaning, their advice did not help - they also advised to keep toping up with formula (??). I also visited the local NHS breast-feeding clinic and two councellors and a nurse attended and they were not able to explain why my son was refusing the breast. They listed about 7 reasons - nipple confusion; breast refusal; too used to formula; too used to the bottle; use of dummy; not always latching on properly so he gets frustrated; positioning. Anyway, they told me about emailing Dr Jack Newman in Canada, which I thought was mad, but they said he is a leading expert and is very useful in solving complex breast-feeding issues. After another wk I felt desperate to crack this and that someone out there must have the answers.

I did email Dr Jack Newman when my son was 15wks and am so glad I did (just google his name if you are interested and his clinic details should appear).

Brilliant book! I wish I had read it before I had the baby, but I foolishly thought 'how hard can breastfeeding be?' Unfortunately I had no end of problems with breastfeeding, but buying and reading this book has saved my breastfeeding relationship from imploding. I am now almost back to exclusive breastfeeding. Without the book, I think the supplements would have taken over and my milk would have run dry at about 8 weeks. The book gives you the confidence to follow your own instincts. It is so important to start off on the right foot. Problems are easier to fix early on, but even if your milk has all but gone you can get it back, with a lot of work and perseverence, it is possible.

I would recommend this book to any pregnant woman, and anyone who is breastfeeding. It is a brilliant book and very easy to read (even if you are a busy new mum). If you want to breastfeed but are struggling don't suffer alone. I live in a very remote place where breastfeeding advisors and local breastfeeding groups just do not exist. I therefore found this book a godsend in trying to correct all my breastfeeding problems on my own. Dr Jack Newman is a breastfeeding god. He has lots of articles on the web if you want a taster for his work, but this book puts all the information in one place for you. I read it cover to cover but it is just as easy to dip into as a reference book.

I have found this book to be an excellent resource to read for advice and ideas on what to do when establishing breastfeeding. Very useful, informative and written in an interesting and accessible style.

This is by far the best book for advice and problem solving! My son had colic but i was determined to find a cure. Took him to 5 different doctors and A&E, they all said you just have to wait it out as we'd tried all the over the counter things......then i found this book!!! he was cured within 24 hours!! So many other solutions that I'd never heard of for other problems too! Deffo a must have for anyone wanting to breastfeed!!
