Format: Paperback
In my roles as a La Leche League Leader, an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant, and a Registered Lactation Consultant I have spent many years working side by side with many mothers and fathers as they experience both the enjoyment of breastfeeding and the challanges.

This book, in my opinion, is the single best book available on breastfeeding. If you are pregnant and only buying one book on breastfeeding this should be it. If you are looking for a wonderful, supportive gift to give to a friend or relative who is far away this should be it. If you want the right book beside you to support you and guide you this should be it.

Why do I rate this book so highly? It is warm, supportive, informative, current and practical. Its easy to read. It doesn't talk down to you and it isn't a medical text. The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding -8th edition - is like having that wonderful auntie beside you at 3 in the morning. You know the auntie I mean - the one who loves you, supports you and doesn't judge you, always says the right thing when you need it.

There are other excellent breastfeeding books out there. Books I recommend when there are special circumstances. But this is the single best one available.

This is the perfect gift to give anyone pregnant or with a baby. She will think of you warmly when she finds it says the most helpful thing at the most helpful moment.

This book should be the first one every mother to be receives. Years of experience and the wisdom of the best current breastfeeding experts (including Canadian author Teresa Pitman) combine to make this your best friend during those first nerve wracking days home with a new baby.

Format: Paperback
La Leche League can be very helpful for woman choosing to breastfeed. However, when I was a young mother, my 4-week old son was not gaining enough weight and was instructed to alternate breast with bottle by his paediatrician. the Le Leche League told me that if I chose to "expose" my son to "artificial nutrition" then he may loose 10 points on his IQ, be more susceptible to disease, and would loose his ability to bond with me. What horrible words to a new mother seeking help! Beware, use them if you find comfort and support, but if you feel uncomfortable or guilt-ridden, know they are not for you. You have choices and though many find them helpful, they are extremists.

Format: Paperback
As a first time mom, I knew I wanted to breastfeed, but didn't know anything about it I wanted to be sure I educated myself so that I had a certain comfort level and confidence, since I had heard breastfeeding is not always easy for all women, especially at first. I thought this book was EXCELLENT. Clearly written and organized, and up to date. All the information you need! I also bought Jack Newman's book, but found this one to be much better organized and easier to read. One note: this book is very pro-attachment parenting, including emphasizing co-sleeping and baby wearing, etc. Some of this stuff was not necessarily a good fit for me, but I think regardless of your parenting style this book will be very helpful. My baby slept in his crib in his own room from day one, but I still loved this book and urge every woman who plans to breastfeed to buy it. Worth every penny!

I am the nursing mother of a 16 month old. The first 6 months of our breastfeeding relationship were difficult to say the least. I experienced every problem you could imagine. I wish someone had told me about this book before I had my daughter. I bought it a month ago, and have found the information incredibly useful even now that our breastfeeding relationship is very well established. The chapter on nursing a toddler has really made me feel good about my decision to continue to breastfeed. All expectant mothers who plan to breastfeed should buy this book.

The best baby feeding book there is. La Leche League is awesome. Anyone planning to have a baby or who has a baby already--or even if you know people with babies-- should read it.

Absolutely wonderful book!
Very well written - thoughtful, considerate and informative.
Provides all the facts (and support) for breastfeeding without a judgmental tone.

I would definitely recommend this to any mom-to-be/new mom!
