Save 63% on BAMS

If you've been waiting for a great time to buy my book Breastfeeding Answers Made Simple: A Guide for Helping Mothers (BAMS), now’s the time. Through the end of April, Hale Publishing has slashed its price an incredible 63%. Usually, sold at $79.95 US, now it’s available at an amazing $29.95 US.

Are you considering donating a comprehensive breastfeeding reference to the health professionals in your area? Does your public health agency need to update its breastfeeding library? Are you sitting for the IBLCE exam within the next year or two and want to make the most of your reference dollars? Is your hospital on a tight budget?

In these situations and more, the time has never been better to buy BAMS.

You can order BAMS at this low price online via the Hale Publishing website, or you can call Hale Publishing and order by phone Monday through Friday at 806-376-9900 from 8 am to 5 pm Central time.

In the US, you can minimize shipping costs (this book is heavy!) by submitting your order by FAX and ordering in bulk or by placing group orders together. When you order by FAX, shipping the first book costs $12, but each additional book adds only $3 in shipping costs.

I have not yet started working on BAMS’ next edition, so no worries about buying it now and it going quickly out of date. Please feel free to spread the word!


Supporting You & Helping to Beat the Booby Traps®

Big news! Starting today, everyone who downloads my Breastfeeding Solutions smartphone app gets more than a go-everywhere source of breastfeeding help. They also support the amazing work of The Best for Babes® Foundation.

A portion of every app download goes to Best for Babes to help beat the Breastfeeding Booby Traps® – the cultural and institutional barriers that prevent parents from making informed feeding decisions and prevent mothers and babies from achieving their personal breastfeeding goals.

The Best for Babes seal of approval is now prominently featured on the app’s home page, and links to the app are featured on the Best for Babes online shop.

When you recommend Breastfeeding Solutions, you provide reliable help to the mothers in your circle and you support the greater breastfeeding cause. Please help spread the word! You can download the updated flyer here. Click on "Share" and then "Download."

Free Podcast on Sore Nipples & Biting

This image links to a free podcast on sore nipples and biting I did last month with Robin Kaplan of The Boob Group and her panel of new mothers. I hope you find it helpful!

The Boob Group mothers' panel also reviewed my Breastfeeding Solutions app. You can hear the review at this link.

Happy New Year everyone!


Breastfeeding Solutions 1.2

The Breastfeeding Solutions version 1.2 smartphone app (now expanded and improved) is available on the App Store, Google Play, and Amazon.

Thanks to many of you, the Breastfeeding Solutions app has been a resounding success. More than 1200 people in 18 countries have downloaded the app since it debuted at the end of October. If you have helped spread the word about this groundbreaking new breastfeeding support tool, please accept my heartfelt thanks.

Reviews of Breastfeeding Solutions

For a demo of how the Breastfeeding Solutions app works, see the review by the U.K. group Andover Breastfeeding Mums or visit my Pinterest page. More online reviews of the app are at The Badass Breastfeeder and Breastfeed Chicago. It has been gratifying to receive such positive feedback from some of my favorite breastfeeding support people:

KellyMom: "Need a great breastfeeding app? The Breastfeeding Solutions app by Nancy Mohrbacher, IBCLC, FILCA is it! I installed it as soon as it was available, and have found it to be easy to use, and full of excellent information."

Best for Babes: "It appears that Nancy Mohrbacher, IBCLC, FILCA has created the WORLD'S BEST BREASTFEEDING APP. If you don't want to waste hours googling answers to your breastfeeding issues, or reading through thousands of threads, this app is for you."

What’s New in Version 1.2

Today—in response to suggestions from users—we launched the new and improved 1.2 version of the Breastfeeding Solutions app. Those who already have the 1.0 or 1.1 versions on their smartphone or tablet should receive notification of this update from wherever they purchased it, the App Store, Google Play, or Amazon. If you have already bought the app, there is no charge to download its 1.2 version, which features three main improvements.

A new Index. The app’s home page (above right) now features a button that takes you to its Index (left), whose purpose is to make it even quicker and easier to find what you’re looking for. Now to find a specific issue, instead of browsing through the app’s Articles section, you can use the Index to go straight there.

The screenshot on the left shows the new Index landing page. To find your burning issue, press the button that corresponds to its first letter.

More content. As one example of new content, if you’d like to read about reflux, press the index button “R.” On the next screen (right), below each index heading are buttons with page titles that correspond to every page within the app where that topic is mentioned. Press whichever button title best meets your need.

To learn about reflux, press the button “Reflux and the Breastfeeding Baby,” which takes you to the page below left and is new content in version 1.2. Other Index headings that lead to this same new content are “Spitting up” and “Vomiting after feedings.”

More links. To make the Solutions section of the app easier to use, more links have been added to improve navigation. The goal is to make it easy for any mother to quickly get her question answered. All of the updates in version 1.2 were designed to do just that.

Please email any feedback you’d like to share about Breastfeeding Solutions to my app-comment address: The beauty of an app is that unlike a book, it’s easy to update what you already have on hand without the need to buy a new edition. If you buy the app now, you automatically receive future updates.
