Two moms Suzanne Schlosberg and Sarah Bowen Shea have combined their years of expertise writing for publications such as Fit Pregnancy, Women’s Health, Shape, The New York Times, Parenting, Glamour, and now they just came out with a new book, THE ESSENTIAL BREASTFEEDING LOG.
THE ESSENTIAL BREASTFEEDING LOG is perfect for:
• A first-time mom. Keeping tabs on eating and sleeping can foster confidence for nervous novices.
•A mom with older kids. They can see how the new baby’s habits differ from the other kids, helping treat each child as an individual.
•A working mom who pumps. Keeping the log on the desk will remind a mom to pump on schedule in order to keep the milk flowing.
•A mom with childcare. It’s a great way to keep tabs on what happens when others are in charge and to succinctly communicate important information to babysitters.
•A mom of multiples. This log is a lifesaver for women who have to keep track of feeding and sleeping schedules for two or more babies.
Marc Weissbluth, MD, author of Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child and a baby-sleep guru, recommends using the Essential Breastfeeding Log “to keep track of how much and when your baby eats and you’ll be well on your way to establishing that most precious of things: a daily routine! Furthermore, using this log will free you of the burden of remembering all the details so that you can spend your time enjoying your baby.”
In addition to breastfeeding, Suzanne and Sarah share helpful tips on getting your body back, the benefits of breastfeeding, and recommendations for the proper gear, and much more in-depth advice and guidance.
