This book is in it’s seventh edition and that says a lot about it. The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding covers issue concerned with breastfeeding and how to deal with the many obstacles and concerns a mother has while giving their baby the best they can give.
Review: Breastfeeding is an art. If you have never breastfeed then you probably have no idea. I myself could not breastfeed my babies. My daughter on the other wanted to try and the first time around it just didn’t work for them. She is again pregnant and wants to try again. So instead of feeling helpless when she needs me I decided to grab this book, read up on breastfeeding and be there for her if she needs me.
This book was exactly what I needed to guide me through something that is new to me. I found from this book that breastfeeding is something that is full of benefits not only for the baby, but for mom too. It also has many ups and downs. Many of these issues can be easily resolved without putting more strain and worry on a new mommy.
This book is full of reliable resources and straight answers to questions that all mothers have when it comes to breastfeeding. It tells you about the benefits of breastfeeding and how these benefits can last a child’s entire lifetime. It gives you information on how to prepare yourself and your body for breastfeeding, even before the baby is born.
It has great information on how to increase your milk supply and how to make sure your baby is getting enough to eat. Finding time for yourself when you have a demanding baby can be very difficult but this book gives you tips on how to do that without feeling guilty about it. It also gives you some great ideas on how to exercise and be healthy while breastfeeding your baby.
I am glad I found this book. It has opened my eyes and has given me some useful tools to help my daughter should she need it. I only wish I would have known about it sooner because it would have helped a great deal when my daughter needed me the most the last time around.
