  • A must have for nursing moms. Mar 08, 2019

  • The best breastfeeding book on the market. A thorough, easy-to-read guide that you can get through once, and keep going back to as needed throughout your breastfeeding journey. Jan 26, 2019

  • This book offers more than just breastfeeding advice. It is a great general reference guide. However, it is also a lifesaver when it comes to breastfeeding issues. Highly recommend. Jul 16, 2018

  • I always get this book at baby showers if I know Mom has any interest in breastfeeding. Filled with invaluable information! Jul 03, 2018

    Filled with detailed pictures and explanations to help guide you through your breastfeeding journey. Especially helpful when troubleshooting issues that arise. A must read for mommas who desire to bf. Apr 13, 2018

  • This book is SO helpful in preparing a woman for what can be a very tricky task...breastfeeding her newborn all the way through toddlerhood. Apr 07, 2018

  • Great breastfeeding book to read before baby arrives! Mar 26, 2018

  • I have mixed feelings about this book. Pros: extremely comprehensive and full of unique nursing advice. Cons: not for the modern woman. Will probably make you feel guilty unless you nurse for 2+ years Feb 06, 2018

  • Great resource to have for breastfeeding. You can read everything though and breastfeeding can still be a challenge. I'm glad I have this as a resource to turn to. Oct 18, 2017

  • A must read! Oct 05, 2017

  • There is a level of bias in this book, but if you can get past that and just take in the information its incredible. Very long, but I have learned more from this book than I have any other Oct 05, 2017

  • Love this book! I had searched for so long about an issue I was having, and this book has been the only place that addressed my issue! Good reference, not a sit and read book. Apr 07, 2017

  • Very, Very informative. They have this book in the lobby of my OB-GYN, I wind up buying it for myself and my preggo friends. Dec 12, 2016

  • Best breastfeeding book and resource on the market. I've read A LOT of them, and am a CLC (lactation counselor). Highly recommend. Aug 08, 2016

  • So good! Nov 21, 2014

  • Sometimes comes across as LLL propaganda but so much great info. Sep 30, 2014

    This was essential during those first few weeks and continues to be a good reference source 4 months later. Jun 18, 2014

  • Must have for nursing support Feb 20, 2014

  • I wanted to like this, but I expected something more practical. I'm about as pro-breastfeeding as you can be and I rolled my eyes so much I thought they might get stuck, Liz Lemon-style. Skip. Feb 03, 2014

  • As someone who struggled to breast feed due to massive blood loss after birth, i felt the message in this book was to just "try harder" & anyone who tried enough could breastfeed - not helpful for me. Feb 01, 2014
