Understanding and Managing Allergies in a Breastfeeding Context

The New Age of Allergies

Breastfeeding Works! Even with Allergies’ is a proclamation that breastfeeding most certainly works even when there are difficulties superimposed by allergies in either mother or baby. Modern breastfeeding folklore is already quite negative since people in Western countries usually grow up surrounded by formula feeding. One example is that women are frequently told that it’s ‘normal’ to have painful feeds in the early days of breastfeeding. Just because something is common does not make it normal! By contrast, traditional breastfeeding communities have no concept of breastfeeding problems! Formula feeding has become common over the last century.

My Second Book

Simplifying Breastfeeding in the 21st Century . Breastfeeding is a visually learned art, so its hundreds of photos are crucial to show exactly how breastfeeding can be made the pleasurable, satisfying experience it is meant to be. Because we do not grow up in breastfeeding communities in most Western countries, it is unreasonable to expect it to be a natural, instinctive activity. This book provides myriads of different ways to understand why breastfeeding may not be trouble-free and what to do about it.

Confusion

If ever there was a more confusing problem for mothers and clinicians alike, it is recognising the role allergies play within a breastfeeding context.
Along with the confusion is a tremendous amount of frustration and downright desperation for many of those unfortunate enough to be affected. Despite their common, everyday frequency now, allergies are almost an undiscovered country in modern life.

I'm very grateful to have found this book! The authors experience as a lactation consultant is well backed up by countless paper references leaving the reader very trusting of her credibility. It's great for anyone who may be doubting that their 'collicky' breastfed baby isn't having gut issues. Since eliminating dairy, eggs and soy from my diet, I've found my daughter to be so much happier and pleasant to be around, and I'm so thankful to see her not crying in pain anymore! It's also a quick read so you can take action swiftly. I only wish the elimination diet page could be revised a bit to include some more thorough suggestions for folks trying to work within plant based diets. All in all, very helpful.

I'm delighted to share my thoughts on this book! Discovering it has been a true blessing. The author's extensive experience as a lactation consultant shines through, supported by a plethora of references, instilling utmost confidence in her expertise. It's a valuable resource for those grappling with doubts about their breastfed baby's colic, offering a compelling case for addressing potential gut issues. After eliminating dairy, eggs, and soy from my diet, my daughter's demeanor has dramatically improved, bringing immense relief as I witness her newfound contentment. The book's brevity facilitates prompt action, a feature I greatly appreciate. However, I do wish the section on the elimination diet could be expanded to accommodate individuals adhering to plant-based diets. Despite this minor shortfall, the book remains immensely beneficial overall

I stumbled upon this book at just the right time, and I couldn't be more grateful! The author's expertise as a lactation consultant shines brightly, supported by a wealth of scholarly references, instilling unwavering trust in her knowledge. It's a godsend for anyone grappling with doubts about their breastfed baby's colic, offering a comprehensive exploration of potential gut issues. Since I started eliminating dairy, eggs, and soy from my diet, my baby has transformed into a much happier and calmer little one, and I'm beyond relieved to see her free from pain. The book's concise format allows for swift action, which is fantastic. My only suggestion would be to expand the section on the elimination diet to better accommodate those following plant-based diets. Nevertheless, I found it incredibly helpful overall.

Breastfeeding Works! Even with Allergies

This book is the first of its kind to explore these issues and to offer ways to recognise and deal with them. Its message is that it is not nearly as difficult to persist with breastfeeding and dietary modifications as it is to live with the consequences of using artificial feeding – in both the short and longer term.
