After reading about the first 10 pages or so of this book, I was able to identify why I was having such difficulty nursing my daughter. (Which made me mad all over again about the whole experience. If I had had a person that could have truly observed me and my daughter, they would have been able to show me exactly what I was doing wrong.) If I had had this book the first time around, I feel I would have continued to nurse my daughter successfully for many months to come. This next nursing experience, I believe, will be totally different and I'm looking forward to it!
The text and tons of actual photos in the book are a little "old," I think. But if you think about it, what has changed in breastfeeding in thousands of years, right? Everything you need to know about getting yours and your baby's position right for the perfect latch is in this book! I couldn't ask for a better book to teach someone the basics of nursing. It certainly has taught me a ton and I truely thought I was well prepared the first time.
The only thing this book doesn't really cover much is the problems that can arise while nursing. But I got "The Nursing Mother's Problem Solver" by Claire Martin to cover that!
I will recommend this book to every mother wanting to have a great breastfeeding experience!
Like so many moms and newborns, my girl and I got off to a rocky start...agonizing engorgement, cracked and bleeding nipples...you get the idea. The photographs and illustrations in this book helped me notice and correct my daughter's improper latch.
As a final word, no book can solve serious breastfeeding problems. It is best to meet with a lactation consultant if you are having difficulty, and use books like Bestfeeding for smaller problems along the way.
