This book was probably very empowering and a bit radical 15-20 years ago when breastfeeding was not strongly endorsed by the pediatric and neo-natal professions, which it is now, thanks to this era's advocacy. The repeating theme of - it'll be fine, you can do it" is still reassuring. But "ultimate books of answers", I think maybe not.
i've heard horror stories from friends about latching on problems, soreness problems, and breast infection problems. oh, not to mention wailing in the middle of the night (for both baby and mom). So i got this book to read ahead of time (i'm due in a month and a half). it has lots of pictures and explains in detail latching on as well as other related problems. it covers alternatives to still feeding breastmilk even if direct nursing isn't possible. it also covers in detail lots of illnesses and the affect on breastfeeding for both mother and child. it covers colic issues, low milk production issues - so much stuff.
some people said it was repetitive - it is at times, but that reassured me that everything was well covered. i just skimmed past those parts. The book is set up in a way that you can read a short portion on a particular subject and not have to be worried about missing something by not reading a whole chapter or the whole book. Some people also said there was a lot of negative focus on formula and time spent talking about that - i bought the book for practical information - i didn't really pay any attention to the opinions of the author.
i wanted something that was all inclusive and easy to read so that i can have it as an easy, go-to anytime of day guide and quickly have my questions answered when the little guy gets here and I am in the midst of breastfeeding.
This book is pretty nicely laid out to find answers to most breastfeeding questions you may have, I think it is a great read for new parents or those who are in birth work. I wouldn't say it has answered all of my questions (even some that I really felt should have been covered) but it did have many answers to other questions, helpful tips, and lots of great breastfeeding related information.
I wish this book came out sooner when I gave birth to my first baby since a lot of the information were what I went through. Now that I'm on my second baby, I'm more equipped and determined to breastfeed even longer!
I also will be using this as a basis to help/advise/support/educate other mothers on their breastfeeding queries.
A must for any mother and I love the real life samples/scenario sharing of Dr Newman!
