From Library Journal
Martin, an award-winning journalist (and a mother), and Krebs, a pediatrician who specializes in nutrition (and a mother), have come together to create a pragmatic breastfeeding guide. Its format is question-and-answer, and its organization is alphabetic. Thus, if you wonder whether it is advisable to nurse when you have the flu, you!ll find the answer under Flu, Breastfeeding When You Have. Based on questions that were asked on the lactation consultant hotline at the Children!s Hospital of Denver, this book addresses common issues of new mothers (e.g., latching on, sore nipples, night feedings) as well as less common situations, such as breastfeeding babies with special needs. The scope of the Q&A is wide, providing a wealth of detailed information from a modern-day perspective (e.g., see the section on Pierced Nipple ). Highly recommended for consumer health collections and for nursing mothers as a ready-reference tool."Linda M.G. Katz, Florence A. Moore Lib. of Medicine, MCP Hahnemann Univ., Philadelphia

For example, I prepared to nurse my son one day and started leaking green milk! I was afraid to nurse him, unsure of whether he should drink it. Baby was crying by this point and I wanted the answer now. I looked in the other books and found no help. I looked in the index of this one and voila! Green milk is in there. One paragraph of reading told me that he could drink it and I was on my way. Crying stopped, crisis overcome. I love this book!
It is arranged by topic, alphabetically. So you can look up colic under "c", green milk under "g", etc. And the topics are in plain english. Very nice. It is also cross-referenced, so if one short paragraph doesn't quite solve your problem, perhaps a related topic will.
There are other books (must get "The Ultimate Breastfeeding Book...") that are nice to read in your third trimester, but this is the one to have in your bag when you go to the hospital and to keep by your rocker-glider when you get home. It really is worth every dime.
If you are a new mom needing basic information on how to start breastfeeding, get Dr. Jack Newman's book "The Ultimate Breastfeeding Book of Answers." It is very comprehensive and tells you everything you need to know from starting out with your newborn to nursing into the toddler years.
