Furthermore, I've seen many acquaintances and friends quit breast feeding because of perceived failures or the "I'm just not making enough milk" assumption because their baby wants to nurse more frequently than once every 3 hours.
Babies need breastmilk! I really think more people would stick with it if they read this book and sought out help from experts before calling it quits! I now recommend this book to every pregnant first time mama I know!

This book made breastfeeding more accessible, and I want to buy it for every new mom I meet. It was just what I needed to get over some of my nursing baggage.
1. it would get SO much easier in a few weeks (if only someone had told me!);
2. all my "worries" were actually normal behavior for a 3 week old baby. (If only someone had told me!)
3. I too could feed lying down at night and actually get some sleep. (If only someone had told me!)
If you're about to have a child - or if you're exhausted after only a few weeks and wondering if you can make breastfeeding work - then do yourself a favor and READ this book before you decide to quit, supplement, introduce a bottle, or switch to formula.
