I recommend this groundbreaking book to all my clients."
-Diane Wiessinger, MS, IBCLC
"I fell in love with this book; every page is a jewel. It simply 'delivers' what every mother needs-the natural laws to build a breastfeeding relationship. Understanding the first forty days has changed the way I talk to new parents and teach breastfeeding supporters. Finally, here is a book that talks about breastfeeding without all the rules. This book lives in my bag to share with everyone!"
-Carrie Finger, BFA, IBCLC, LCCE, lactation program director at Aviva Institute

The book is well structured from explaining how mommy and baby are both hardwired for breastfeeding (i.e., it's totally natural), to how to create a good latch, to understanding your baby's feeding patterns and then dealing with common breastfeeding problems. It also provides good tips on how to breastfeed at night (and during the day) so that you minimize the level of effort required to breastfeed (This is key when you have a baby who wants to eat every hour... at the beginning).
The book's motto is any amount of breastfeeding is better than none... so even if you also want to provide some formula to your baby, for whatever reason you may have, this book would be helpful.
This book does seem to encourage co-sleeping. Although this is not recommended by Health Canada, what I have found practical is having my baby in the bassinet in my room and breastfeeding my baby in bed at night (sitting in my bed, not sleeping with the baby). This is another tip from the book.
I have read several breastfeeding books, and this is the best. For a mother who has some difficulties, Dr. Jack Newman's book http://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/1443410039?ref_=cm_cr-mr-title is very good, and that book also has a lot of general information, but Breastfeeding Made Simple is UNIQUE. I recommend reading both books if possible.
