The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding
by La Leche League International
"The Definitive Guide", The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding aims to
cover all aspects of breastfeeding, from newborns to the toddler
years. Topics include: the benefits of breastfeeding, preparing
to breastfeed, overcoming common problems, returning to work, pumping,
nursing multiples and breastfeeding in special situations. The authors
also offer advice on how to integrate nursing into your family life,
as well as providing basic information on parenting, such as coping
with colic, discipline and how to introduce solids.
Leche League is the world's leading authority on breastfeeding,
so you can trust the book to provide you with reliable information.
You will find a basic overview of everything you need to know to
successfully nurse your baby from infancy to weaning, whether you
are a first-time mother or a nursing veteran. The book is written
in a very approachable, easy-to-read style, with a convenient format
that makes it simple to find the information you are seeking.
Womanly Art of Breastfeeding serves as a good introduction for breastfeeding
mothers. Because the book covers so many topics, those with special
situations such as working out of the home may wish to supplement
the book with additional sources. The book is supportive of breastfeeding
almost to a fault; women who have formula fed in the past or are
planning to supplement in the future may at times feel overwhelmed
by its unapologetically pro-breastfeeding, anti-formula stance.
La Leche League's philosophy has always been to "take what you need
and leave the rest," and they write their book accordingly.
