After I was referred to Dr. Melanie, she helped me with my breastfeeding technique and through the process of elimination, we ensured that there were no foods in my diet that were upsetting baby Ava’s tummy. Within a few weeks Ava was crying less and we were able to play and cuddle together more.

As a first time Mom I was pulling my hair out as to why my newborn son Garrison was crying so much. Once I changed my diet it was like I had a new baby. Thanks Dr. Melanie, you've made a world of difference for the whole family!!!."

My beautiful Sydney was cranky and screamed for the first six months of her life. I had been counseled to eat a lot of yogurt to get enough calcium while I was breastfeeding, which I now know caused all of Sydney’s distress. When Owen came along, I followed the diet in the Calm Baby Cookbook. He slept well and was quite a happy baby."

The Calm Baby Cookbook offers one the best explanations of foods breastfeeding mothers can eat to avoid having their babies be fussy with intestinal discomfort. I am glad to finally have nutritious foods and recipes that I can provide to parents with confidence. It is an inexpensive book so everyone can afford to purchase this fantastic cookbook. Mothers have told me they like it because it has foods that are usually in their homes already (or are easily obtainable) and recipes that are easy to follow.

Thoroughly “user friendly,” The Calm Baby Cookbook will prove a simple godsend for parents driven to distraction by a cranky, screaming, crying, distressed newborn during those critically important first few months of life – The Midwest Book Review

The book is awesome! I have given copies to several patients who run lactation departments at the local hospitals -- they are forwarding your website to many patients as they want copies for themselves!  Way to go!!!  We save copies of your book for our midwives and also in our lending library.
