Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly Recommend This is the book I buy and recommend for expecting mothers. There are so many breastfeeding books out there, but for me this is the ultimate resource! It is easy to read and is very well organized with a comprehensive index. It also has an extensive list of troubleshooting tips for a wide variety of problems a nursing mom may encounter. But my favourite part of this book are the anecdotes included from nursing moms. Their stories touched my heart and gave me confidence and resolve to continue nursing even when I was experiencing diffuculty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great resource I did a lot of reading about breastfeeding before and after my baby was born and this book is simply the best resource out there. Down to earth guide to breastfeeding. Discusses how babies breastfeed differently as they grow and what you can expect along the way. Also great advice on dealing with problems you may encounter. Practical suggestions and a very reassuring read for new moms...highly recommended for anyone planning to breastfeed.
