Breastfeeding Shouldn't Suck!: And some other things you should know about Babies by Sarah Ford
While the experts tell us that breastfeeding is the absolute healthiest thing a mother can do for her baby, it isn't always a walk in the park. In this straightforward and infectiously fun debut, Breastfeeding Shouldn't Suck! And Some Other Things You Should Know about Babies, author Sarah Ford, P.T., offers parents invaluable guidance on what it takes to survive the newborn years. From advice on first feedings to tips on PDBF 'public displays of breastfeeding' to directives on taking medications and the occasional alcoholic beverage, it is clear that Ford has done her research. In twenty anecdotal chapters, this parenting guide offers more than just the vernaculars of breastfeeding; it is a manifesto of mothering the natural and holistic way. While it celebrates the newborn child as a distinct and individual creature, it also finds comforting similarities in all wee ones. It is a guide for all mothers in simple techniques that improve comfort and wellbeing of both mother and child.
