Start learning about nursing your preemie with this book

I wish that I had had this book right after my son was born at 30 weeks. I had breastfed my older (full term) daughter but knew nothing about breastfeeding a preemie. This book gives a very positive outlook and really makes you feel like it is possible to nurse your preemie. There is information on pumping and storing your milk, on problems you may encounter while pumping, about kangaroo care and on helping your preemie learn to nurse, including pictures of nursing positions that are especially suited to preemies. Most importantly, there is information on ways to provide supplemental feedings other than by bottle to avoid the nipple confusion that may hinder breastfeeding.This book is rather short. I don't think it is meant to be an all encompassing "how-to" breastfeeding manual, but rather a nice way to begin learning about breastfeeding a preemie. Anyone who wants to nurse their preemie should take the author's suggestions to see a lactation consultant to heart. My son came home exclusively breastfed and I owe my success in nursing to several caring, hardworking lactation consultants. You just can't learn everything you need to know from this or any book, but this book is a good place to start.
