The development, structure, and function of the breast is followed by an outline of care for the mother from pregnancy through nursing. How and when to begin nursing at the hospital and how to handle various problems after arriving home are detailed. Advice for fathers about breastfeeding and their wives needs precedes a discussion of the role of sex during breastfeeding. Special problems that arise regarding breast, baby and milk are fully presented. A discussion of the baby diet and food choices are included with details on how and when to wean.
