    Mama knows breast is fantastic!

    This was my very favorite breastfeeding book by far. It's fun format made it easy to read but the information is very accurate. I highly recommend this for moms interested in realistic information about breastfedding.

    A reviewer

    Mama Knows Breast is a 'girlfriend's guide' for the nursing set -- either those in the throes of figuring it out or expectant moms who want the lowdown on what breastfeeding is really all about. Andi SIlverman tackles the subject with a well-researched guide that is down to earth and fun.

    Great Breastfeeding Book for New Moms!

    Andi Silverman has written a really down to earth breastfeeding book. The text is filled with truthful and humorous quotes from moms and interesting data points, enough to make you laugh at 3 a.m. while you're feeding. The illustrations are also very sleek, educational and entertaining. I counsel new mothers all the time and this is the positive, easy-to-read text to help get them through some of the more practical issues that they deal with on a day-to-day basis with their babes, from figuring out how to breastfeed in public, to answering the inevitable questions about breastfeeding, to keeping connected to their partners...and Silverman does it all with flare and style.
