This evidence-based guide for professionals covers essential information to help support parents breastfeeding past the first six months, including starting solids alongside breastfeeding, nursing manners, and common problems and challenges.

The recommendation of breastfeeding beyond six months is well-established, but many birth professionals don’t feel confident enough to support parents. This book, packed with case studies of real-life parents and practical tips, helps to educate healthcare professionals – as well as parents themselves – to feel better informed. Each chapter combines professional, research-led evidence with a parent-focused resource section for a fully integrative approach.

Centring families and their personal journeys, Supporting Breastfeeding Past the First Six Months and Beyond is an invaluable guide for all lactation consultants, birthing professionals, healthcare workers and parents.
