Book Review of The Breastfeeding Book: Everything You Need to Know About Nursing Your Child from Birth Through Weaning

reviewed on + 2 more book reviews


Great book! So much useful and necessary information! I skimmed it before having my baby, not really sure what anyone could po0ssibly say about breastfeeding that would fill an entire book. She is my first, so I had no experience in what questions I would have once we started breastfeeding. But after she was born, I have used the book a lot. Almost every question you could ask is answered in the book. Of course, not everything is treated exhaustively, so some questions may be answered in a brief format. My favorite thing is the treatment of the subject by the authors. Their focus is for the baby to be reassured and secure in their dependence on his/her parents every moment, and they give lots of helpful and useful advice on accomplishing that in your home.
