|Summary:|| How to Succeed in Breastfeeding Without Really Trying provides new mothers with humorous, easy-to-use, hands-on advice and step-by-step instructions on how to initiate, sustain, and actually succeed in breastfeeding. After giving birth, many women are shocked to discover that breastfeeding does not come naturally; rather, it is painful and awkward. Feeling both frustrated and exhausted, they often find themselves without help or support from hospital staff. Not surprisingly, many do not initiate or prematurely quit breastfeeding. This book is written not only to help women breastfeed, but also.
