Abstract
Breastfeeding is the natural and healthy way to nourish your baby, yet it's not always easy. New mothers need practical information about getting off to a good start and solving breastfeeding challenges. Health professionals need this information too, because it is rarely taught in medical school. Dr. Jack Newman's Guide to Breastfeeding covers the most common problems and questions that mothers encounter: - How do I help my baby to get a good latch - How can I know if my baby is getting enough milk - How can I help him get more? - Can I avoid sore nipples? - Will my medication affect my baby? - How do I fit breastfeeding into my life when I'm so busy? The answers are here. Dr. Jack Newman and Teresa Pitman are two of the world's foremost lactation experts and have helped tens of thousands of new mothers find solutions that work. In this comprehensive guide, they share the most current information about breastfeeding and provide new, effective strategies and solutions to make breastfeeding work for you.

Abstract
When Alex was born prematurely in 1998, he weighed only 21 ounces. He spent only four days of the first tentative year of his life at home. The rest was spent in the hospital in one critical medical situation after another, with Stimpson and his wife battling hospital staff, fighting to keep the treatments and procedures to a minimum. Stimpson chronicles the day-to-day struggle to keep Alex alive and, later, to make something of a normal life for him as Stimpson and his wife slowly come to terms with their child's physical and mental limitations. Alex's homecoming only shifted the venue for constant care, worries, and crises. Tracing Alex's development from premature birth to kindergarten, Stimpson offers a compelling look at the roller coaster of emotions faced by parents with a severely ill child who must contend with sometimes supportive and sometimes callous medical and social workers as they advocate for the maximum care and opportunity for their child.

Abstract
When Natalie's little brother Evan Earl is born prematurely, he's earns the nickname Evan Early. No one can say for sure when Evan will come home from the hospital. To help her with this uncertainty, Natalie's father gives her a calendar to keep track of the days - each day that Natalie colors in is one day closer to the day Evan can come home. Natalie visits Evan in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and talks to the nurses about what they do, and her Mom explains how the tubes and machines are helping Evan to breathe and eat. As the days go by and become 'rainbow weeks' on Natalie's coloring calendar, she gets lonely and a little scared; her parents spend most of their time with Evan in the NICU. She finally gets upset by their neglect. Her Mom reassures her that they haven't forgotten about her. Natalie learns that, although her brother might always need special help and lots of attention, she can be a big help and teach him family traditions.
