Handy pointers about typical toddler-feeding issues such as that annoying twiddling, handling your child's verbal public request to nurse, dealing with critics, night-nursing and weaning.
If you currently are nursing your toddler, or if you are considering the journey, this book is worth owning. I have included a recommendation for it in my new book, Gentle Baby Care: Essential Tips for Raising Your Baby.
-- Elizabeth Pantley, author of The No-Cry Sleep Solution.
This book covers every imaginable topic, including sexuality while nursing, family pressure, tandem nursing, and weaning. The information is very easy to read, and more importantly, it lets you know that you are not alone. Whether your nursing child is 1, 2, 3, or older, this book addresses all of your concerns and questions in a very supportive and informative way.
If you love breastfeeding but feel that you should wean your child because of pressure from friends or your own lifelong programming, then this book will reassure you that it is not only okay, but normal, to nurse your child well into toddlerhood. If you are struggling with the breastfeeding relationship due to lack of support being a mother, because your other commitments interfere, because it is difficult or uncomfortable for medical reasons, or because your child just likes it more than you do, then you will find little to help in this book except the knowledge that by continuing to breastfeed you are providing your child with a source of instinctual comfort.
I believe that this book would be strengthened by demonstrating a more complete understanding of the reasons why mothers choose to wean their nursing toddlers and providing realistic strategies for mothers to avoid these reasons.
