The Definitive Guide to Breastfeeding Your Baby
Breastfeeding may be natural, but it may also be more challenging than you expect. Some mothers encounter doubts and difficulties, from struggling with the first few feedings to finding a gentle and loving way to comfortably wean from the breast.

Breastfeeding Made Simple will help you to:
- Find comfortable, relaxing breastfeeding positions
- Establish ample milk production and a satisfying breastfeeding rhythm with your baby
