This new edition of the Hohm Press classic, We Like to Nurse, is presented in the Chinese language. It is designed to address the needs of one of the fastest growing populations in the US. The decision to breastfeed is determined by a mother's personality, her level of self-esteem, her education about the potential problems of the initiation period in breastfeeding, her need or desire to be able to leave her baby in the care of others for long periods of time, and the attitude of her spouse. However, with education and support from others, particularly other mothers who know the situation first-hand, almost all of these factors can be positively addressed.

The Little Black Breastfeeding Book is a small reference book that arms women with the emotional tools they will need to nurse their babies through the first year of life. The title is a bit of a play on words as it is small in size and it is black in cover, but it also is directed toward black women as it shares the authors story as a black woman who has breastfed her children and who would like to see more black women do the same. The book in interactive fashion asks a series of questions that a midwife might use to assess readiness to breastfeed. The author intentionally hopes to create a dialogue in small groups of women that will garner support for nursing their babies and delaying weaning. The author sees breastfeeding as an extension of the bond formed between mother and baby during pregnancy. Clearly, prematurity; little or no breastfeeding, early weaning and early and frequent separations between mothers and babies are seen as related plagues on the community and perhaps more importantly as damaging to the health and well-being of the mother. The book also takes a departure from most how-to books targeted for women during pregnancy and uses an interactive format to list what she believes are the most common reasons why mothers fail to nurse their infants and what she believes are the keys to a successful maternal experience of breastfeeding. There will certainly be some controversy as she challenges commonly held beliefs about sleeping with your infant and advice on weaning and the importance of resolving spiritual and emotional issues in parenting. Some may also find the focus on intellectual and emotional issues a welcome departure from many baby books you may receive at your baby shower. The book lists the more common reasons black women dont breastfeed their infants as well as listing what she believes will allow women to succeed at nursing. In a clever way she invites the reader to look inward and to answer those same questions for herself.

America’s Guide to the Nursing Home Experience delves into an aspect of health care many fear as a dark, sedated environment with no hope of recovery. Michael Bilger, with his years of experience in long-term care administration describes the ins and outs of the nursing home environment and makes his readers understand that nursing homes are not all what many make them out to be. Today’s nursing homes strive to provide a homelike environment with meaningful activities designed to meet the emotional and physical needs of our senior citizens. Short-term rehabilitation has become a popular trend for senior citizens requiring a quick and safe recovery while long-term sedation is a thing of the past. With these changes, however, come more complex insurance issues and the need to recognize the personal and legal rights of nursing home residents. Michael Bilger, a certified geriatric care manager and administrator of long-term care for many years, will help guide you through these obstacles and break down the barriers to understanding how nursing homes function. In addition to his work in long-term care administration, Mr. Bilger has also written many courses for health care professionals to further their knowledge in the field. Most of these courses can be found at the Careology Institute in Sacramento, California where he now serves and President and CEO. Their Website is www.careology.com. Mr. Bilger is furthering his own education as this book goes into print by now embarking on his doctorate in health care administration. Look for further published work in the near future.
