One would think since I have been breastfeeding for almost 3 years straight that I wouldn’t feel the need to read up on it looking for more tips and tricks, however that’s not the way I operate. I research everything to death.
Last week I read two breastfeeding books cover-to-cover (as my newborn napped on my chest) and I have to recommend one of them.
The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding (La Leche League International Book)
This book validates every thought I have about nursing, and truly supports my natural instincts as a mother. This is in sharp contrast to many books on the market that muddle our minds with rules, schedules to follow, “the right way” to do things, etc. which only make most of us feel inadequate in our mothering skills.
If I had to choose one book about breastfeeding to recommend to a new mom, or a mom who has years of experience breastfeeding, this book is it.
