I bought other books on breastfeeding that were three times the price and did not contain half the information. For the price you can't beat this book. It covers everything from going back to work to how your husband can be involved and supportive.

I bought this book to get my order total up to the level for free S&H and am SO happy I did! This book is packed with information that is necessary for any first time breastfeeding mother. From what to expect to ways to help increase your milk supply. There are even growth charts included! Don't let the low price let you think this book is not worth reading!
