5.0 out of 5 stars A great read 23 Oct 2010
A humorous, informative, knowledgeable book about breastfeeding. Loved this. Not as wholesome as 'The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding', or as serious as 'Bestfeeding' but warm, interesting and definitely worth a read. Deserves to be reviewed, recommended and read again and again. Read it before your baby is born, or once you are a breastfeeding mother and it will teach you things you never knew, advise you on a successful breastfeeding relationship and make you feel like a friend popped round for a cuppa.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Nursing Reference 16 July 2005
By L. Loyd - Published on
Deciding to breastfeed a baby nowadays is much easier if you have some solid information on your side. This book gives it to you--lots of it. Karen and Gale Pryor are not, however, as preachy as some nursing books can be, which I appreciated. This is a calm, cool discussion of the benefits of breastfeeding, a solid how-to manual including problems you may have and thier solutions, and a discussion of how/why to keep going beyond the first three or six months. Very informative, very nice style of writing, enjoyable and comforting to read for a first-time mom. Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars The ONLY book I wish I had read before baby was born! 25 Dec 2005
By M. Fagen - Published on
I bought all of the common pregnancy books - "What to Expect..." and "Your Pregnancy Week by Week..." but I didn't buy this book until after my baby was born and I needed more information on nursing her. This book was WONDERFUL, and I could barely put it down- despite being totally exhausted. It was so much more than a nursing reference. It was everthing I wish I had known prior to giving birth. Honestly, if you are going to have a baby, buy this book before birth and read it cover to cover while you still have the time and are not falling asleep every chance you get. :) If you have a new baby- get this book. No one tells you these things in the hospital but they should.

5.0 out of 5 stars More than 5 stars 19 May 2006
By A reader - Published on
Read this book before your baby is born. Read this book after your baby is born. Keep re-reading this book. It is loaded with excellent information about breastfeeding. I was given this book when my first was born and found it an excellent motivator to keep going when the nursing got tough or when I found myself having twins (twice) and had doubts about my ability to nurse. You will get tons of "free gifts" from the formula companies at the hospital. Arm yourself with good info so you can separate fact from propaganda. ***Have dads read it too, their support is vital to successful nursing.***

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Nursing Book! 28 Feb 2006
By JRC - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is a must on any new breastfeeding mom's list of items to buy or receive. I was given this book as a gift. Therefore, I like to return the favor and give it to new moms whom I know are planning to nurse at their baby shower's around the 7 month of pregnancy. I don't believe this book is preachy, it just gives you the facts and stats about breastfeed babies. Easy to read, good directions, and best part for me was reading about the growth spurts relating to supply and demand. Great book!!

5.0 out of 5 stars the NURSING BIBLE ! 9 Feb 2007
By J. S. Vonferber - Published on
This book allowed me to successfully nurse my baby from day one! It is filled with both information about why nursing is better than formula, as well as with VERY positive advice and ENCOURAGEMENT from two nursing vetrans! It is an interesting and informative read. Contains LOTS of infomation on positioning and how to get started nursing from day one. Also includes sections on nursing the older baby and nursing problems. Makes you feel confident that you CAN nurse your baby! LOVED IT!
