A book about infant feeding is long overdue. During many years of interacting with new mothers, Diana found a lack of help and support from healthcare professionals to provide mothers with unbiased information and consistent infant feeding support. Diana and Aneke have joined forces to assist the new mother with her infant feeding practices in a clear and concise way. Hello World: See Me Drink is a compassionate and realistic take on breast and bottle feeding.
