I purchased this book while researching the breastfeeding chapter in one of my forthcoming books. I immediately fell in love with this book -- specifically, with its innovative approach to the material (the seven natural laws) and its warm, supportive, and mother-friendly tone. The authors do a terrific job of explaining the root causes of many common breastfeeding problems in ways that make so much sense. Their section on how taking a "left-brained" approach to the very "right-brained" act of breastfeeding is totally brilliant. I can't praise this book highly enough.

I did not breastfeed my first child for more than a few weeks, but when #2 was in the NICU, I had a lot of time to read, and a lot of time to pump! This book suggests setting shorter term goals instead of the "Breastfeed for a year or else" message I seemed to hear with my first child. The book also talks about how the baby breastfeeds, not the mother, which took some of the pressure off. There was also mention of how in the U.S., Moms get a lot of support before the baby is born, but could use a little more help after the birth. A reverse Cinderella idea...very clever.
This book made breastfeeding more accessible, and I want to buy it for every new mom I meet. It was just what I needed to get over some of my nursing baggage.

I have done a lot of reading on the topic of breastfeeding, and this book tops my favorites list! The information and research provided in this book are far more up-to-date than what you'll find in most breastfeeding books. This book helps moms understand how breastfeeding works so that they can adapt their breastfeeding relationship to their specific needs and desires. It also does an amazing job helping moms understand the "bottle-feeding culture" and how that can impact breastfeeding. I didn't find the book to be pushy at all - in fact, I thought it was very releasing and gentle. I am going to give this book as a gift to all my pregnant friends!
