Most Helpful

extremely comprehensive, but one thing wrong. ..

the bad:
there was one thing I didn't enjoy, the chapters are not labeled with titles so you're really left in the dark regarding which chapters discuss what topics, which makes it hard to reference back to specific information.

the good:
loved this book from beginning to end. the content was fantastic, and informative. This book serves a springboard from which to build a foundation when you're first starting out learning about breastfeeding. she touches on a lot of resources so you can further build and even offers very detailed guidance about latching and any arising concerns. i definitely recommend it to both new mom's & experienced moms.I would venture to even say dads should listen because there's a lot of useful information for them too. I just finished it but will need to go through it a few more times because it's just that jam packed with information.
