“Nancy Mohrbacher's Breastfeeding Solutions is a handy guide for solving common breastfeeding problems. Breastfeeding Solutions is formatted so that new mothers can find the information they need right away, and Mohrbacher offers more than one solution for each problem she describes. That is an important feature, as so many of these problems are complex and the solution may not be readily apparent. When mothers are presented with several ways to address a problem, they more likely to persist until the breastfeeding problem is solved. Mothers will also be encouraged by Mohrbacher's underlying optimism and her firm belief that breastfeeding problems can be solved. This book is a useful guide for both mothers and the practitioners that care for them. I highly recommend it.” -Kathleen Kendall-Tackett, PhD, IBCLC, FAPA, editor-in-chief of Clinical Lactation, coauthor of Breastfeeding Made Simple, and owner of Praeclarus Press
“It's always been my impression that breastfeeding gently nudges us into becoming the kind of mother our baby needs. So when problems arise, the clear and effective strategies presented in Breastfeeding Solutions are key to getting back on track for a life-enriching breastfeeding experience.” -Marian Tompson, cofounder of La Leche League International, founder and CEO of AnotherLook, and author of Passionate Journey: My Unexpected Life
“Is there room for another breastfeeding book? My enthusiastic answer is, `yes!' Breastfeeding Solutions is a short primer written for busy nursing mothers seeking the latest cutting-edge answers to their concerns in a short and easy format. Nancy Mohrbacher has a way with capsulizing information into concepts like `The Magic Number' that help mothers understand what is happening and how to fix it, if there really is a problem. If her many solutions don't solve the problem (and they usually will), the excellent resource list will quickly direct mothers to further information on their issue. I will be sending this book to my daughter and daughter-in-law!” -Lisa Marasco, MA, IBCLC, FILCA, La Leche League Leader, coauthor of The Breastfeeding Mother's Guide to Making More Milk
