I've never been in the military, but as a board-certified lactation consultant, I have long sought specific information to help my breastfeeding clients who are serving in the military. But this book really surpases my expectations!
I'm very impressed by the depth and extent of the information. This book provides accurate, very specific, well-versed ideas and practical recommendations in clear, military-style language that doesn't sugar-coat the realities, but also shows the many ways that breastfeeding can happen that work for the mom, the baby, and the military. I particularly like the way that the author emphasizes the importance of maxmizing the mother and baby's time together so that they make the most of it and enjoy it fully.
This wonderful new book fills a much needed niche in the breastfeeding literature and is now one of my favorite breastfeeding books. It's so great to know that now more military moms will be able to stay connected to their babies through breastfeeding!
