I have been breastfeeding for 6 months and just returned to work 5 days a week. I was looking for a book that could keep me informed (I've read a lot so giving me NEW info was going to be hard!), entertained AND help remind me why I continue to breastfeed! This book did all these things!!! It's great for moms with newborns AND older babies! It covered everything you would need and want to know about breastfeeding!
