Great book if you want to survive various challenges that can come with nursing your baby. A must have.

This is a great book for any mother who wants to nurse. Nursing is not easy for everyone. Well, of course it is easy when you are still in the hospital and there are nurses everywhere and your baby acts like an angel. But a few weeks into it, nursing can get to be very difficult. It's great to have this book on hand because it has real information that you need, like low milk supply (pump to increase it), too much milk (wait a little before pumping), milk storage, latching on issues, and what agencies can help if you are still having issues. I got free help from the agency they listed (yes, a woman actually came to my house and helped me). I was not able to go to the hospital and meet with someone, so this was ideal. I nursed both of my kids for a year and without this book and support from my family, I would not have been able to do it. So many people gave me bad advice (with good intentions, just bad advice). I referenced this book and it got me through difficult times (mastitis, sleep deprivation and trying to nurse). I would recommend this book to any new mom or anyone who wants to help a new mom through nursing challenges. Very well written and so easy to read.
