Awesome guide, may save many a baby from cow's milk. Shared with all housestaff!
Pretty good for a generic description.
This guide was developed by medical students in consultation with internationally recognized breastfeeding expert Dr. Ruth Lawrence. While some resources are specific to New York the majority of information is relevant to all geographic areas. The information is primarily useful to support the mother in her decision and early days of breastfeeding.
