 Our Description

Linda Kracht and Jackie Hilgert

Breast is Best! It s the mantra taken up by policy makers and the scientific community as evidence of the myriad benefits of breastfeeding continues to mount. At the same time, mothers who breastfeed tell us there is more to the breastfeeding relationship than simply providing their babies with superior nutrition and health benefits. For many women, the nurturing component to breastfeeding is what draws them to the Art and keeps them practicing. The Art of Breastfeeding examines the science that underlies the nurturing relationship and helps women perfect the process over time.

Look to The Art of Breastfeeding to understand why breastfeeding is best; learn how to get breastfeeding off to a good start; get tips for navigating common obstacles; understanding the developmental importance of baby-led weaning; and learn the body s clues to understanding the postpartum transition state and the return of fertility. The Art of Breastfeeding does more than champion the numerous benefits of providing an infant with superior nutrition; it celebrates breastfeeding as a gift God designed for mothers and babies, yet one that also benefits fathers, families, and society as a whole.
