Breastfeeding difficulty due to insufficient glandular tissue is something many mothers struggle with. Because this condition is still largely under-researched and misunderstood by practitioners who work with mothers during the perinatal period, women who experience breastfeeding problems due to insufficient glandular development also struggle to find support, both clinical and emotional, in dealing with them. This book aims to inform and support the efforts of breastfeeding mothers with low milk production due to insufficient glandular tissue, from both a scientific standpoint and an emotional one, covering the unique decisions and feelings that may be faced by someone who fully intended to breastfeed but felt betrayed by her body. The book also provides guidance for practitioners who seek to understand this condition and support their patients/clients who are dealing with it.

Are you a breastfeeding mother? Do you sometimes need to find an alternate way to feed your baby when you are apart? Choosing to breastfeed your baby is an excellent choice. Your baby benefits in many ways, and you have the peace of mind of knowing that you are giving your baby a great start. There may be times, whether by necessity or choice, when you need to offer your baby a bottle or a pacifier. You will want to find a feeding and comfort method that works for you and your baby without sabotaging breastfeeding.

Balancing Breast and Bottle provides you with valuable information on how to select and use the bottle nipple or pacifier that is best for your breastfed baby. Authors Amy Peterson and Mindy Harmer help mothers solve the dilemma of how to feed a breastfed baby during separation, while protecting the breastfeeding relationship and making sure that every mother can reach her breastfeeding goals. The authors' combined professions of International Board Certified Lactation Consultant and Speech-Language Pathologist bring two unique and informed perspectives in selecting and using artificial nipples for a breastfed baby. Balancing Breast and Bottle helps mothers understand the basics of breastfeeding and how a baby's suck can be used to select the best bottle nipple. Tips for collecting, storing, and stockpiling milk are included, along with various pumping scenarios to ensure that the baby's bottles are loaded with as much breastmilk as possible. In this book, mothers will learn how to find the ideal balance between breastfeeding, pumping, and bottle-feeding for their own family. By following the tips in this book, every mother can feel confident that her baby will eat when they are apart.

When breastfeeding does not go as hoped, mothers often have feelings of loss, sadness, anger, fear, failure, guilt and self-blame. Mothers then say they are heart-broken, crushed, and even devastated. These painful emotions double a mother's risk for postpartum depression. Yet, our healthcare system does not have guidelines in place to help mothers prevent the escalating emotions of Breastfeeding Grief. We have no "plan B" which guides mothers to promote optimal bonding when their breastfeeding goals are not met. And our mental health experts do not understand how to guide mothers in their emotional healing, so mothers can fully enjoy their baby with renewed confidence. Hilary Jacobson, author of "Mother Food: A Breastfeeding Diet Guide with Lactogenic Foods and Herbs" is a holistic breastfeeding specialist and clinical hypnotherapist. Her easy-to-read book "Healing Breastfeeding Grief" contains the essential information mothers need to navigate their way back into a positive sense of self, and an intimate connection and bond with their baby.
