Breast milk has long been considered the best diet for a baby - it provides long-lasting health benefits for both mother and child. Seventy percent of new mothers start out breastfeeding, and all of them eventually face the same questions: when is the right time to wean, and what is the best way to go about it? This book explores the hygienic, nutritional, and emotional concerns that make weaning an important and often difficult transition.

About the Author

Kathleen Huggins is a registered nurse and board-certified lactation consultant who is widely recognized as one of the pioneers in establishing the lactation consultant discipline as a core component of maternal-child health care in US hospitals. She established this reputation by creating and running a model breastfeeding clinic at San Luis Obispo General Hospital in California; by lecturing widely to professional peers and hospital administrators; and through her book The Nursing Mother's Companion. She has also co-authored The Nursing Mother's Guide to Weaning and Nursing Mother, Working Mother. She lives in San Luis Obispo, where she currently runs a new mothers' store, Simply MaMa. She continues to lecture widely in the healthcare and lactation-consultant arenas.
