I wish I read this book before I started breastfeeding but luckily enough i prouduced copious amounts of milk and did'nt have many problems with it, however the book was a hive of information on every aspect of breastfeeding from newborn to toddler and beyond, everything you need to know and almost every problem you WILL encounter on your breastfeeding journey will be in this book, I really believe it should be given to every mother who wants to nurse or try nursing, I really found the going back to work section good as I am still feeding my 15 month old and wanted to continue feeding her, I didnt want my milk to dry up and had some good pointers in there on expressing ect, I did however have a colicky baby and although my midwife swore blind breastfed babies DO NOT get colick,but there is was in the book, I over prouduced milk and my let down was to quick for my newborn so expressing off a bit of my milk before a feed helped a little on times as it took away the fountain guzzling down my poor baby's tiny mouth, I still read the book as I did encounter a few problems like my baby only feeding off one side, over prouduction, and the constant wondering if she was getting enough milk in those very early days, I am a pro now and can control my milk production depending on how often I feed my greedy piggy who loves the booby so much she would have me walk around braless so she could latch on anytime she wants!!! it is a beautiful way to bond with your baby and the longer you breastfeed the better it gets, an excellent book for anyone who has an interest in nursing, for new mothers and mothers who have bottle fed and want to have a go at joining the breastfeeding clan.....a really really really informative read that I would highly recommend.
