Our pre-natal instructor recommended this book to us. It is easy to read and provides info for on-line videos to watch. It goes through the importance of breastfeeding as well as basic instructions on how to get your baby to latch properly. I had trouble breastfeeding when my daughter was born due to complications with her delivery. This book kept me fighting to breastfeed when I was exhausted, for which I am grateful. Dr. Jack Newman's website and book are also great resources. Good luck!

I was recommended this book when I was still pregnant with my first child and am I ever glad I read it! There is so much about breastfeeding that needs to be taught, it isn't instinctual at all! I felt much more confident in my first few days with my newborn and even in my daze of the first hour after delivering felt I had a good starting point to get that proper latch (so critical!)

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!

A truly outstanding breastfeeding guide March 15 2006
By Ann Douglas - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I purchased this book while researching the breastfeeding chapter in one of my forthcoming books. I immediately fell in love with this book -- specifically, with its innovative approach to the material (the seven natural laws) and its warm, supportive, and mother-friendly tone. The authors do a terrific job of explaining the root causes of many common breastfeeding problems in ways that make so much sense. Their section on how taking a "left-brained" approach to the very "right-brained" act of breastfeeding is totally brilliant. I can't praise this book highly enough.

For the reluctant breastfeeders... Sept. 8 2006
By Shannon Sullivan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I did not breastfeed my first child for more than a few weeks, but when #2 was in the NICU, I had a lot of time to read, and a lot of time to pump! This book suggests setting shorter term goals instead of the "Breastfeed for a year or else" message I seemed to hear with my first child. The book also talks about how the baby breastfeeds, not the mother, which took some of the pressure off. There was also mention of how in the U.S., Moms get a lot of support before the baby is born, but could use a little more help after the birth. A reverse Cinderella idea...very clever.

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.

Best Breastfeeding Book I've Read May 29 2006
By C. Honea - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have done a lot of reading on the topic of breastfeeding, and this book tops my favorites list! The information and research provided in this book are far more up-to-date than what you'll find in most breastfeeding books. This book helps moms understand how breastfeeding works so that they can adapt their breastfeeding relationship to their specific needs and desires. It also does an amazing job helping moms understand the "bottle-feeding culture" and how that can impact breastfeeding. I didn't find the book to be pushy at all - in fact, I thought it was very releasing and gentle. I am going to give this book as a gift to all my pregnant friends!

My favorite breastfeeding book! June 9 2006
By Julia - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have a little stack of breastfeeding books that I started accumulating when I was pregnant with my now-4-month-old, and this book is by far the most helpful one among them. It has different information than a lot of the other books out there and is very encouraging and empowering.

I wish I'd had this BEFORE MY SON WAS BORN! July 6 2007
By JW - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I thought I'd done everything I could to prepare for breastfeeding, but if a friend hadn't brought me this book at 3 weeks I really might have thrown in the towel. I was starting to think I'd never make it through the first month and wondering if I had milk supply problems. In five minutes of looking at this book I realized that:

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.
