There is currently very little medical literature on this subject, as this part of healthcare falls between different specialties and there is no 'breastfeeding' doctor to treat the mother and infant unit. Therefore, ??Clinician's Guide to Breastfeeding: Evidence-based Evaluation and Management bridges the gap that too often leaves mothers to figure out on their own what to do or visit with a lactation consultant, whose training and expertise is widely varied and doesn’t act in collaboration with a pediatrician. Additionally, while books on breastfeeding are geared mainly towards mothers, this book is written for otolaryngologists, pediatricians, OB/GYN’s, and family practice physicians. The first of its kind to educate health care practitioners about breastfeeding, Clinician's Guide to Breastfeeding is written by a leading expert on the subject and is a comprehensive review of breastfeeding that discusses normal nursing, abnormal nursing, and evaluation and treatment for mothers and babies who have difficulty nursing. ?
