As a Neonatal Intensive Care Nurse and first time expectant mother, I am a strong advocate for breastfeeding. I believe the Le Leche League has provided some great information within the book that can assist a new breastfeeding parent and provide them with alternatives for support should there be none available to them. However, at the same time I felt the author's preached alot of their own opinions throughout the contents of the book. In particular, the book contains a section that provides information for the mother who is returning to work after a baby. While it provides helpful information on pumping and storing milk, it also states that the best thing you can do is arrange to work from home or better yet, not return to work. I find this a little unrealistic, since the majority of families today are two income families. The feeling I had after reading this section was that Le Leche almost looks down on mothers who return to work and do not stay home to breastfeed their children. The author's also stated on numberous occassions throughout the book to question and sometimes refuse the suggestions of the medical providers, in regards to their child's care. I am a strong believer in asking questions, but if you don't get the answers you want or understand, please get a second opinion or ask for further clarification, do not refuse medical care for yourself or your child unless you are fully aware of the implications. Overall, the factual content was good but after I completely finished reading the book, I was unsure if by joining Le Leche League I was joining a support group for my child/myself or I was joining a cult!
