“The New Mother’s Guide to Breastfeeding” by the American Academy of Pediatrics
Myself, I read it for obviously practical reasons – I’m the breastfeeding mom of a new baby, and I wanted a guide to have on hand to answer any and all questions that might arise. Written by the American Academy of Pediatrics, “The New Mother’s Guide to Breastfeeding” does just that. It’s packed with information on everything from latching to proper nutrition for moms, and can answer most questions new moms might have while they navigate the tricky but rewarding process of breastfeeding.
That said, it’s a dry read. I totally expected hat, but I’m just saying. There’s not a lot of humor in the mix, and it’s very cut and dry. As the book was written by a team of Doctors, it’s understandable too. All of this totally works for what the book is, but I just felt it was worth pointing out.
If you want a full-color guide to breastfeeding that’s got moments of charm, this isn’t your book.
Not that there’s anything wrong with that. Done and Done.
