This book is just brilliant. It goes through absolutely everything you need to know in just enough detail as well as being evidence based and up to date. From milk production to the "basics" of effective positioning and latch, the importance of the first 2 weeks and lifestyle change during breastfeeding. It also has chapters on breastfeeding multiples and premature babies, problems such as sore nipples and (my old friends!) blocked milk ducts and mastitis. It even has a fantastic 'what to expect when' table at the back, which is a million times better than another book of a similar title! I know all breastfeeding books cover similar things but this book goes into so much depth, is easy to read and most importantly is BABY LED!
I would recommend any pregnant women who is wanting to breastfeed to read this book before baby arrives (as well as The Food Of Love by Kate Evans) and visit your local breastfeeding support group and see some women actually feeding their babies, if you haven't had much experience of breastfeeding before. This book also has some simply wonderful photos in too, demonstrating good latching, positions to feed in, hand expression and breastfeeding out and about. I'll be recommending this book to anyone who will listen for years to come!
