I have breastfed two children, then I had a baby with major problems breastfeeding. After I started reading this book, some of my confidence came back. Dr. Newman and Teresa Pittman address many problems and solutions, that most breastfeeding books do not touch. One of my favorite breastfeeding sourcebooks. I am hoping that this will help to have read this book, that my next baby will do better, God Willing.

I'm also a certified lactation educator and this book is excellent! I have this and a mutitude of other breastfeeding books on my shelf and I refer to this one often. Essentially anything written by Dr. Newman is right on and great. I also recommend the following for new moms:

The Baby Book: Everything You Need to Know About Your Baby from Birth to Age Two (Revised and Updated Edition) - great reference for EVERYTHING.

The Nursing Mother's Companion: Revised Edition - this was a great reference for me personally while breastfeeding.

Artificial baby milk cannot compare to the benefits of real breast milk for babies. These are great books to help you get a good start on the path of breastfeeding (and will likely be continually referenced during the duration of your breastfeeding time of life with your baby/toddler)

I needed to read this book for a certification I am getting. I enjoyed it. It has already helped me, help other women breastfeed. The information in it is good. The one point that bothered me, which I didn't even think about until someone else brought it up, is it is kind-of-skeezy that this MD is touching women's breasts for too long (I watched some of his videos). His technique is great, but it feels a little inappropriate after someone mentioned it to me. In fact, one instructor said she stopped showing it in her breastfeeding classes, because women were offended by it. So, buyer beware if you might be offended, but really, I will keep this in my library for reference, because the information is quite useful on asymmetrical latch and hand-expression.
