Some mothers and babies take to breastfeeding with ease.  For most of us however, learning to breastfeed can have its bumps and roadblocks.  Homeopathic remedies can be a great help with common breastfeeding difficulties such as supply (too much or too little), mastitiis, sore nipples, and thrush.  (See my blog on Jan 8 for Miranda Castro’s book “Homeopathy for Pregnancy, Birth and Baby’s First Year“.)

In my practice I use and recommend Dr. Jack Newman and Teresa Pitman’s books on breastfeeding.  These books have detailed descriptions of  breastfeeding problems and practical advice on how to determine exactly what your problem is, along with suggestions as to how to address these problems.
