The Little Green Book of Breastfeeding Management is a pocket-sized guide to breastfeeding, written for medical professionals, assuming no previous experience with breastfeeding. It is not intended to be "everything to everybody," but just a concise, simple resource with references to find more detailed information if needed.
Author Gail Hertz, MD, IBCLC, FAAP, covers the basics of breastfeeding, the first 100 hours and beyond, and mother and baby issues related to breastfeeding. Mom, baby, and feeding evaluation questions are provided in the resource section, along with information on milk banking and how to teach reverse pressure softening in one minute or less.
Simple and to-the-point, this book answers basic questions on breastfeeding a busy healthcare provider might run across in a typical day, plus it fits in your lab coat pocket, so it is easy to access! In its 5th edition, this Little Green Book has already been a ready reference for many medical professionals. This new, updated version will be an invaluable addition to your resource library.
