Breastfeeding 101: A Step-by-Step Guide to Successfully Nursing Your Baby is written by a lactation expert who knows what a new mother needs at 3:00 a.m. when she is just home from the hospital, the baby is crying and nursing isn't going well, she has received conflicting information and the other reference books are too long.
Tiller's easy to read guide offers clear, understandable, and step-by-step instructions with detailed illustrations on how to establish a good latch and a good milk supply, how to know your baby is getting enough, and how to solve common problems some moms experience.
From her 25+ years of assisting new moms, Tiller, a registered nurse, provides the information new mothers (and those supporting them) need to know. She builds confidence through details, pictures, answers, and proof that the baby is getting enough to eat with worksheets to track the baby's progress.
It's the breastfeeding guide that needs to be within reach of the rocking chair.

Congratulations on the birth of your baby. Breastfeeding is one of the most important things you can do for your baby. The nutrients and anti-infective properties in breastmilk are unmatched in formula and contribute greatly to promoting and maintaining your baby s health. In addition, there are benefits to you, the nursing mother, which include reduction in the rates of certain types of breast, uterine and ovarian cancers as well as a reduction in the risk of osteoporosis and a more rapid return to pre-pregnancy weight.
Throughout my twenty-plus years of assisting new moms with breastfeeding I ve found the same comments and concerns arising again and again:
"Each time someone came to help me in the hospital I was told something different."
"Breastfeeding books are too long and filled with conflicting or confusing information."
"None of this makes any sense."
"Why does it seem to be so difficult for me?"
"I thought this would be so natural." "I called my baby s pediatrician and they told me not to worry, the baby would catch on."
"Grandma said, I didn t breastfeed you and you re just fine, what s all the hoopla about breastfeeding anyway? It just adds to your stress and confusion. "
Many parents feel ill prepared for the demands of a new baby. Difficulties with breastfeeding can feel magnified during this time of sleep deprivation as you navigate your role as a new parent. Since your newborn will need to eat often, difficulties with breastfeeding cannot be ignored.
Help is available. This book is designed as a quick reference for assistance with the initial hurdles in breastfeeding. It is not meant to take the place of a lactation consultation or a visit with or phone call to your baby s pediatrician.
This book provides short and concise steps on initiating breastfeeding in an easy-to-remember format. There is no one right way to breastfeed. Moms and babies are all different. So the method that works for you may not be good for your friend or even your next baby. But the guidelines and suggestions in this book can help you get off to a good start. I cannot emphasize this enough: if difficulty persists, call for help. Breastfeeding experts are out there! Use them, but don t forget to keep your pediatrician informed about what s going on.
Again, congratulations on your new baby. By obtaining good information you are starting off on the right track. Every day you breastfeed your baby, the benefits for both of you will last a lifetime.
