Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Readers will not be persuaded that a natural, commonplace activity like breastfeeding warrants an illustrated how-to guide, even if, as Kitzinger asserts, "women often lack confidence," and, hence, cause themselves unnecessary difficulties because of nervousness and anxiety. With a simple, short explanatory text and some 200 photographs (approximately 100 in color) of nursing mothers, the author of The Complete Book of Pregnancy and Child birth sets out to dispel fears about breastfeeding and conveys practical advice about positioning the baby, interpreting the baby's sucking rhythms, maternal nutrition and breast care. The most valuable parts of the book, however, are not on honing "technical skills" but those that treat aspects of the intimate communication between mother and baby--during breastfeeding and beyond. Kitzinger encourages the mother to involve the father in the burdens of infant care--as well as the rewards of nurturing--and to link up to a supportive network of women with children who can share both her positive and negative experiences and help her to maintain perspective during the emotional first months of a baby's life.

Format: Paperback
Sheila Kitzinger brings her knowledge and experience to light in this extremely-well-illustrated (superb photos!) guide to breastfeeding. She includes what to expect, what is normal, and what problems may arise. This would be a wonderful gift for a new mom. I love this book and highly recommend it as a first-read for those women who are breastfeeding or thinking about breastfeeding

Format: Paperback
This book is for the mother who knows she is going to nurse. Not those two weekers out there! My son is now 2 and I reached my goal of a year of nursing + a couple extra months. This book reassures you that we were meant for this. Also, there must be a colored illustration on like almost every page. Read this book as soon as you find out you are pregnant so you can start preparing yourself, if need be. This book is and will be more helpful then any nurse or doctor I've encountered. I'M SO THANKFULL I HAD THIS BOOK. I let one of my girlfriends borrow it but I'm sure I'll have to buy my own again.

I loved this book when I used it as a reference when I was nursing all of my four children. It is proudly displayed in my book collection. The photos are wonderful. They show such diversity that any mother can find a photo to identify with in the book. I also enjoy this book because it is a great way to show children how nursing a baby is a normal natural thing. The drawings in other books cannot capture that same feeling. When my daughters areready to nurse their babies this a book that I will pass on to them.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Malapert on October 11, 2001
Format: Paperback
This book is well written, filled with educated information and very encouraging in today's soceity of formula pushers. I chose this book specifically because I'd never seen anyone breastfeed a baby before and found the many pictures very useful in positioning my son correctly. My son is now 13 months old and I still refer back to it for new ideas as he grows into a toddler and a more active nurser. Highly recommended!!

By Heather on November 21, 2001
Format: Paperback
This book has been a great start for me and my first baby. It explains things in detail with lots of pictures. Also, it discusses related topics such as ways to bond with your baby. Watch out if you are a bit conservative. There are lots of references and photos of women breastfeeding children who are well past the toddler stage. A bit out of the ordinary in America, but still a great book!
