This book is the Bible of low milk supply! This excellent book is geared towards mothers currently struggling with low milk supply and for mothers who may have struggled with their milk supply with a previous baby and who would like to be proactive and try to figure out what possibly went wrong so that they can try to fix it for a subsequent baby. It is also a valuable reference guide and resource for professionals working with breastfeeding mothers.
The material presented is primarily evidence(research)-based, but that said, is not too technical for the average reader. It focuses on a step-by-step investigative approach to figuring out where your problem(s) with low milk supply are originating, and then offers helpful and practical ideas for going about improving your milk supply in a practical and non-blaming way. It does not promise a full milk supply for everyone, but I think if you try some of the ideas found in this book (those that are applicable to your situation), you will certainly end up with an improved milk supply at the very least. There are no "one-size fits all" remedies here and you do have to start at the beginning and read through the book in it's entirety or you may miss out on lots of important information. There are no magic bullets here either-- if you want to increase your milk supply it will probably take a lot of time and energy figuring out why it's low in the first place, and then you'll have to put in even more time tailoring remedies to suit your unique situation. Some of the solutions presented are more conventional (i.e.

While the intention is good, a lot of the advice for boosting supply is readily available on many breastfeeding websites and mother to mother forums online. Didn't go into enough detail about the various causes of low milk supply - instead referred the reader to their website for more details. Excellent resource for effective herbal and food galactogogues and dosages, as well as which herbs to avoid.

You don't have to have a supply problem to enjoy this book. I read it before my first was born, on the advice of a close friend who is an IBCLC. Between the kellymom website and this book, I was able to feed my baby and donate 150 oz. to the milk bank.

The best thing about the book is that if you actually read it, not just skim it, you'll have a fundamental understanding of how lactation works. That lets you make good decisions in a lot of different situations. Absolutely don't skip the apparently technical parts, they are easier to understand than they seem. The book also has a sympathetic, realistic, common sense tone that I really liked.

A lot of this info can be found in The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding but there is some additional strategies, and it delves a lot deeper into the reasons WHY you may have a milk supply problem.
