Handy pointers about typical toddler-feeding issues such as that annoying twiddling, handling your child's verbal public request to nurse, dealing with critics, night-nursing and weaning.
If you currently are nursing your toddler, or if you are considering the journey, this book is worth owning. I have included a recommendation for it in my new book, Gentle Baby Care: Essential Tips for Raising Your Baby.
-- Elizabeth Pantley, author of The No-Cry Sleep Solution.
No psychobabble here! The book is a fun read, based upon the testamony of 1000 nursing couples as well as the author's own experience. Some of the things toddlers have to say about the subject are simply priceless, and the little cartoons will bring a knowing smile to any nursing mom's face. I found this book not only to be a wonderful resource on nursing but on parenting as well. Any woman nursing a child or contemplating nursing a child will find this book helpful and heart-warming.
This book covers every imaginable topic, including sexuality while nursing, family pressure, tandem nursing, and weaning. The information is very easy to read, and more importantly, it lets you know that you are not alone. Whether your nursing child is 1, 2, 3, or older, this book addresses all of your concerns and questions in a very supportive and informative way.
My daughter will be 2 years old next month and I am still breastfeeding her. The second year of breastfeeding has really been the best. She does it now because she WANTS and not because she HAS to and it is the greatest feeling in the world when your walking toddler comes up to you and asks for "nee-nee, mommy!" :)
When you feel like others are judging you, read this book and you will see that those who judge are the less educated ones. We are doing what is best for our babies and we (as mothers) know what is better for them - not the other way around!
Keep up the good work to all breastfeeding mothers!
