Most health professionals believe that mothers need to be taught how to breastfeed. This book describes new research evidence suggesting that mothers and babies innately know how to breastfeed, and introduces a new approach called biological nurturing. Biological nurturing is a collective term for optimal breastfeeding states and positions whose interaction release spontaneous behaviors helping mothers and babies get started with feeding. Biological nurturing is quick and easy to do. Most moms and babies automatically move into the correct positions if left on their own. The challenge for health professionals lies with understanding the releasing mechanisms and learning how to help mothers and babies do what comes naturally. This book restores confidence in nature's biological design and in mothers' innate capacity to breastfeed. Dr. Suzanne Colson is one of my heroes because her thoughtful and careful research and the conclusions she has drawn from this research have finally brought common sense into the discussion of breastfeeding. Ina May Gaskin, CNM, Ph.D., Author, Spiritual Midwifery and Ina May's Guide to Breastfeeding Colson's mentor, French obstetrician Michel Odent, changed the way we think about birth. In this book, Suzanne Colson does the same for breastfeeding. Get ready to rethink-like I did-many of your most basic breastfeeding assumptions and learn some revolutionary new ways to help mothers and babies. This book will change your life!

Breastfeeding rarely conforms to the idealized Madonna-and-baby image seen in old artwork, now re-cast in celebrity breastfeeding photo spreads and pro-breastfeeding ad campaigns. The personal accounts in Others’ Milk illustrate just how messy and challenging and unpredictable it can be—an uncomfortable reality in the contemporary context of high-stakes motherhood in which “successful” breastfeeding proves one’s maternal mettle. Exceptional breastfeeders find creative ways to feed and care for their children—such as by inducing lactation, sharing milk, or exclusively pumping. They want to adhere to the societal ideal of giving them “the best” but sometimes have to face off with dogmatic authorities in order to do so. Kristin J. Wilson argues that while breastfeeding is never going to be the feasible choice for everyone, it should be accessible to anyone.

Die Mehrheit des Gesundheitspersonals glaubt, dass Mu¨tter im Stillen unterwiesen werden mu¨ssen. Dieses Buch liefert neue wissenschaftliche Belege, die zeigen, dass das Wissen, wie gestillt wird, Mu¨ttern und Babys angeboren ist, und stellt ein neues Konzept vor: das Intuitive Stillen. Intuitives Stillen ist ein Sammelbegriff fu¨r optimale Verhaltenszustände und Positionen zum Stillen, deren Aufeinandereinwirken spontane Verhaltensmuster bei Mu¨ttern und Babys auslöst, die ihnen helfen, mit dem Stillen zu beginnen. Intuitives Stillen ist schnell und einfach umzusetzen. Die meisten Mu¨tter und Babys nehmen selbsttätig die richtige Position ein, wenn dies ohne fremdes Eingreifen von außen zugelassen wird. Die Aufgabe des Gesundheitspersonals besteht darin, die auslösenden Mechanismen zu verstehen und so zu lernen, wie sie Mu¨ttern und Babys helfen können, das zu machen, was diese intuitiv tun wollen. Dieses Buch stärkt das Vertrauen in die biologische Basis des Stillens und die angeborene Stillfähigkeit der Mu¨tter. Dr. Suzanne Colson ist eine meiner Heldinnen, weil ihre aufmerksame und sorgfältige Forschung und die Schlussfolgerungen, die sie daraus gezogen hat, endlich gesunden Menschenverstand in die Diskussion u¨ber das Stillen gebracht hat. Ina May Gaskin, Hebamme und Autorin von Spirituelle Hebammen, Praktische Hebammen, Die selbstbestimmte Geburt und Ina May's Guide to Breastfeeding Der französische Geburtshelfer und Colsons Mentor, Michel Odent, veränderte unsere Art und Weise u¨ber die Geburt zu denken. Mit diesem Buch unternimmt Suzanne Colson dasselbe fu¨r das Stillen. Machen Sie sich bereit, viele Ihrer grundlegenden Annahmen u¨ber das Stillen zu u¨berdenken - so, wie ich es getan habe - und lernen Sie einige revolutionäre, neue Wege, um Mu¨ttern und Babys zu helfen.
