All who assist breastfeeding families will find A Lullaby a welcome invitation to reflect on their personal experiences with moms and babies. It’s treasure trove of thought-provoking (and sometimes playful) ideas will help caregivers appreciate the meaning undergirding their daily encounters with these families. Dieticians, nurses, lactation consultants, both occupational and physical therapists, physicians, La Leche League leaders, and peer counselors – each will find wisdom here. Auer gives us illuminating insights to help us recognize the true North Star that propels our actions to protect, promote, and support human milk fed and breastfed babies. As we gaze upon the evening moon, A Lullaby assures us: Well done. Sleep Tight.
