This book is an easy read for a busy person; I have 5 children at home and finished it in two days. Being a nurse, I am amazed at the amount of research in this book. Every married couple, doctor, nurse, midwife, childbirth educator, and clergyman needs this book in their library. Sheila Kippley discusses all of the breastfeeding behaviors that are often seen to give the nursing mother many months without fertile cycles. This information is vary valuable for the many women who wish to space their babies naturally and not have to use artificial contraception. It is a distillation of the author's prior books, "Breastfeeding and Natural Child Spacing" and "Breastfeeding and Catholic Motherhood". This is the book of the millenium for healthy families!

Editor's notes of La Leche League's New Beginnings where this book was featured: "Many mothers have heard that breastfeeding affects their fertility. What is less likely to be discussed is the precise hows and whys. Sheila Kippley explains more about the relationship between breastfeeding and fertility in her newest book, The Seven Standards of Ecological Breastfeeding. Not everyone will want to practice what Kippley calls 'ecological breastfeeding' or use breastfeeding to space their babie, but her book explains what that means for mothers." Issue 5, 2008

It's an amazing book, I love her other book too "Catholic Mothers and Breastfeeding." I think one of the great things is to know that the Catholic church supports Breastfeeding and even encourages it as far as even up to two years old. Pope John Paul II was also a big supporter of breastfeeding for Mothers. Obviously keeping in mind "Modesty" while breastfeeding. Either way there is a very spiritual element to breastfeeding. If a Mother can't breast feed for serious reasons than that is recognized, but if she neglects to give her child what is best for selfish reasons, in my opinion is injustice to the Child.

Format: Paperback
What a great book! Maybe it is because I have a natural interest in the subject, but I found this book to be a quick, easy read that kept me engaged and fascinated. My first to read on this issue, not exclusive breastfeeding but ecological breastfeeding (and there is a difference!), and I found it to be very balanced on the use of scientific evidence and research and practical encouragement from mothers.
The Seven Standards of Ecological Breastfeeding: The Frequency Factor by Sheila Kippley covers "What every woman needs to know about breastfeeding and spacing babies." There seems to be two extremes when it comes to breastfeeding and natural child spacing, either, "Breastfeeding doesn't space babies and is not an effective means of birth control," or the exact opposite, "you can't get pregnant while breastfeeding." This book dispels both of those myths and explains the hows of exclusive, ecological breastfeeding, God's way of natural spacing children for optimal health of mothers and children.
Chapters include the Seven Standards: breastfeed exclusively for six months, pacify your baby at your breasts, don't use bottles or pacifiers, sleep with your baby for night feedings, sleep with your baby for a daily-nap feeding, nurse frequently day and night and avoid schedules, avoid any practice that restricts nursing or separates you from your baby, plus chapters on natural weaning and the return of fertility, natural child spacing and systematic natural family planning and support.
