What stands out for me about this book is its lack of judgment. Many breastfeeding books and websites I've seen are dogmatic and judgmental, but this one focuses more on the practical information that I'm looking for, saying "we know stuff happens, and here's how to deal with it when it does" -- as opposed to "stuff happens because you're not doing something right...suffer through, sacrifice all for your child or you're a bad mom." Like I mentioned, I didn't find breastfeeding to be as simple as some might have you believe, and the last thing a new mother needs is a book to make her feel like a failure because breastfeeding doesn't work out.
As a breastfeeding counselor and breastfeeding mother myself, I highly recommend this book for expecting, new and experienced mothers.
