Top Customer Reviews
Appendices are particularly informative. The first gives contact information for many resources, from support and education to nursing bras, pump rental and various accoutrements such as breast shields and lanolin. The second gives charts for determining the amount of milk infants of varying weights need. Appendix three, with its own index, is a gold mine -- a comprehensive overview of all manner of drugs, over-the-counter as well as prescription, with information concerning their safe use (or non-use) while nursing an infant.
There is also a bibliography if you'd like to look into certain issues more carefully, and an index which is, as others have stated, rather inadequate.
Don't let a poor index stop you from buying this extremely useful resource, though. If you intend to breastfeed, you will refer to this wonderful book many times -- and you will almost certainly find the answer you are looking for.
