Product Description

Review

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

Format: Paperback
This book contains so much useful information in an easy-to-read format. The forward is written by Dr. Jack Newman, Canada's foremost lactation expert, so you know the material is solid and science-based. I found this book so helpful to review when I was getting started with breastfeeding, and was soooo glad I had read it before giving birth so I could filter out the not-so-good advice I received from well-meaning relatives, friends, and even hospital nurses. The best part was, I knew right from the beginning that it is not supposed to hurt to breastfeed! Had I not known this, I might have been tempted to grin and bear it, rather than recognizing that the baby's latch was not quite right and taking steps to fix it before things got out of hand. I cannot rate this book highly enough.

This is THE book about breastfeeding. I read many books about the subject and I think this is most informative and complete I've read. During the first days and weeks of breastfeeding, I went back to the book dozens of times! I especially liked the chapters about how it should be during the first days/weeks. Breastfeeding is a worrisome process and this book was very reassuring. Every time we had a question or wondered if something was normal, this book answered well! If you plan on breastfeeding and have no one close to you to help you figure it out, this is THE book to have on hand. The only thing I would have liked is more details on how it should go after the first month. Overall,it is the best book I've read on breastfeeding.

This is an excellent breastfeeding book. It has given me the confidence to know that my instincts were right. My newborn wanted to be feed every hour during the daytime for the first two week. I was happy to know that this was normal.

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.

When I had my first little guy, a Doula lent me this book. I had struggled figuring out how to breastfeed, but found this book super super helpful. After I had no problems. Weaning was easy peasy and I understood how breastfeeding worked so how I should do it. I now buy this as baby gifts. 2 moms I have given this to have both told me how greatful they were for it. Both have had great breastfeeding experiences. One of them was pressured to bottlefeed in the hospital giving birth. She said that having read this book gave her the confidence to withstand pressure from the nurses and she has a healthy chubby sweet little 8month old now, who happily breastfeeds no problem! It doesnt just help you when you start breastfeeding. It helps you through the stages and then weaning. I had zero pain and easily weaned both my boys. Thoroughly recommend this to any mother!

Every new mother should be handed this book. I call it the breastfeeding bible and it is a MUST read. There is far too much misguided information being handed out by Dr.s, nurses and other so called health care professionals. Their advice will ultimately land you in the aisles of your nearest store buying bottles and formula. If you want to breastfeed your child- READ THIS BOOK. Also remember that breastfeeding is about SO much more than just 'food' for your child, it's about the relationship, the bonding, the unmatched nutrients and immunity passing for your little one. That doesn't come out of chemical laden powder. Don't discredit the immense benefits of putting everything you've got into understanding how to breastfeed for a healthy supply and a healthy child.

I bought 3 breastfeeding books and this is the best one. It really covers all the information that you need to know to make a go of breastfeeding. Also, I did have some difficulties, and this book helped with troubleshooting in those situations, and to know when to seek more help. I like the writing style of the authors and it was really easy to read, and made a lot of sense. It is the only book you need, if you just want to read one book on the topic. I would HIGHLY recommend this book to every woman having a baby. It is a great resource and so clearly written, it is like a knowledgeable friend talking to you. I am even rereading it now, to review some of the information. This is a great book and makes a whole lot of sense. Get it!

Awesome book! I wish I read this before my first child was born. Every nursing mother needs to read this book. It includes a lot of information that is not mentioned by doctors, or even lactation consultants. Very informative, and interesting. It discusses some historical points, effective nursing positions, and is empowering to women.

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.
