The book clearly lays emphasis on building skilled breastfeeding or infant and young child feeding counselors. This is necessary for all health facilities, public or private. Women who come to deliver in health facilities trust health workers/professionals, therefore, it is highly justified that they acquire the knowledge and skills that are needed to make a woman successful in breastfeeding within one hour and maintain exclusive breastfeeding for the first 6 months. The book clearly underlines the need for skill building of health workers and counselors for breastfeeding and infant and young child feeding counseling. Coupled with the knowledge that it provides in easy, readable and understandable manner, this can be a useful resource to prevent and manage problems of breastfeeding and especially when women perceive that they do not have enough milk for their babies. It can give confidence to its readers who can then build the confidence of mothers; the most critical link if broken, leads to failure of breastfeeding or adoption of artificial feeding.
