Have you ever heard “You can’t breastfeed if…”?
Then this book is for you.
Feeding your baby is hard enough without misinformation catching you out. Breastfeeding is one area where everyone has an opinion, but how can you figure out what’s accurate and what’s absolute nonsense? Is it true that your big baby needs extra milk? Does breastfeeding make your breasts sag? Do strawberry seeds REALLY pass into breastmilk? Spoiler: No. No they do not.
In this book, we will break down the good, the bad and the ugly of lactation myths and misinformation using evidence and common sense. From antenatal, to natural term weaning, and all stages in between—those burning questions you have about feed frequency, medication, sleep, diet, teeth, pain, and topping up with formula will be answered once and for all.
