Informative and comprehensive,
This review is from: The Breastfeeding Mother's Guide to Making More Milk: Foreword by Martha Sears, RN (Paperback)
This book is excellent for anyone who is concerned about their supply. It covers a multitude of reasons for low supply - and methods of increasing it.
The book begins by explaining how milk is produced - but is not as technical as to put off a non-medical person. It is important to understand what the body does, as it can help you identify the problem (if there is one) and how to approach it. It goes on to examine ways to determine if there actually is a supply problem or if it's something that either you or the baby is doing; what's normal and what's not; and has a comprehensive guide to galactogogues, which I found very useful - you will often hear about fenugreek but there are many others. The book gives help for you going back to work, a section on special circumstances such as preemies, multiples, induced lactation, relactation and much more.
It is a comprehensive guide which I found not only educational, informative and useful but reassuring. Definitely worth buying.
