Excerpt
Breastfeeding is easy; there is nothing complicated about it. And there is no single best way to do it. Still, it is a skill that you have to learn, and it is an activity whose success depends on the kind of information and support that you get. Nursing a baby may fulfill an instinctual drive, but both you and your baby need to learn the actual procedures for breastfeeding and need to be reassured while you're learning.
To help you do what you want to do and to make the most of what may be among the most memorable and enjoyable experiences of your entire life, we have once again updated and revised this book. It is very exciting for us to realize that many of the women who are reading this edition of our book are the grown children of our first readers, now nursing their babies. It is always a thrill to have so many women -- some of them grandmothers -- come up to us at meetings and tell us, "Your book was my Bible."

Professional Reviews

Journal of Human Lactation
This classic manual for breastfeeding mothers is updated with great style, practical tips, and a balance of depth and breadth....The mother who is struggling with the decision to breastfeed will find the first chapter helpful in understanding both the reasons in support of breastfeeding and the reasons some women are reluctant to breastfeed....This book anticipates common myths and addresses them with correct information. In the home or at a lending library, this book would quickly show the signs of frequent use.

First Year of Parenting
If you're planning to breastfeed, this is an essential guide. If you're not yet sure, this book will help you make the decision.

ICEA Bookmarks
Retaining all of the original book's warmth, candor, and practical information, this revised edition covers everything a nursing mother should kow, from nutrition, exercise and fitness, to sex, nursing in public, and expressing and bottling milk.
