So HI. My name is Lisa. My freinds call me wyllow or Lacie. I am almost 35 and have 4 kids. I work for my local wic office as a breast feeding peer councellor. I love my job. sorry to put this here, I am new as of today.
I love "breast feeding: keep it simple" and "breast feeding: a parents guide" (both by Amy Spangler) along with "the womanly art". There are several other books that we use at work as well that I can get the tittles and authors to come monday.

"Defining Your Own Success: Breastfeeding After Reduction" by Diana West. If you have had breast reduction surgery and are attempting to breastfeed, this is a must-have. (In fact, I wouldn't even buy the "Womanly Art of Breastfeeding" -- its treatment of this subject is cursory at best).

Diana also has a new book coming out called "Making More Milk: A Nursing Mother's Guide to Milk Supply" which may be of broader interest. Supply is a big issue for post-reduction breastfeeding moms.

Look at http://www.kellymom.com and http://www.lalecheleague.org for lists of good books.

Some of my faves:
the Breastfeeding Answer Book
So That's What They're For, Breastfeeding Basics
Bestfeeding
Womanly art of course...

Take the time to heal from your marriage before you move on with someone else. Make a list of all the qualities you would like in a new partner and then work on growing that way yourself. ~mandib50

'Breastfeeding your Baby' by Sheila Kitzinger (she's from Down Under like me!) - it's the only book I ever needed.
I have the old edition (1989) from a second hand store but there's a new one out now. There are loads of great pictures (complete with perms and mullets in my edition ) as well as all the info you need and more.....

I just read The Nursing Mother's Companion, and I gotta say it has THE BEST description of latch-on I've EVER read. (Full disclosure - I've never actually done this before, only read about it, but it sure LOOKED helpful. )

I also like So THAT'S what they're for! - good info, friendly tone (ignore the pro-epidural crap)
Womanly Art, but mostly 'cause it's classic
and Sheila Kitzinger's Breastfeeding Your Baby - LOVE the photos!!! (I don't have the mullet and perms edition )

This is a great book! One of the best I've read. I desperately want the DVD now, though...

my favorite was Nursing Your Baby by Karen Pryor. I don't know if it's still in print. it was my mom's favorite in the 70's and she gave me her copy. It has plenty of info and an upbeat, encouraging attitude.

Loving our chaotic, crunchy, homeschooling life!

I read The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding (& it was good) & some others, but these 2 were standouts; in that 1st sleep deprived, what am I supposed to be doing about THIS!? week, Tamaro's book was an upbeat little lifesaver, & Behrman's book is like hanging out w/a bunch of other nursing mothers, comparing & sharing experiences.

This is my absolute favorite! Better than Womanly Art & Dr' Jack's books! NOT PREACHY- The MOST HELPFUL- with photos and gentle encouragement and corrections on "age-old hospital experience based LC advice" that have since shown to be the wrong. It was hands down the best- goes beyond the basic problems !

(NEVER BUY BFing for DUMMIES! - The worst on teaching you all the old mistakes that cause woman to have more problems and eventually give up!)


New Bestfeeding, The: Getting Breastfeeding Right for You

The 10th anniversary edition of this wonderful illustrated guide has been completely revised and updated. It is the culmination of exhaustive research and decades of hands-on experience from three dedicated, internationally respected experts. They believe that ALL women can provide the perfect nourishment for their babies.

Author: Mary Renfrew, Chloe Fisher, & Suzanne Arms


My IBLC Thought it was great too!

I read LLL's The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding, but found my best resources were the lactation consultants at my pediatrician's office and in the hospital. I was so crazed from lack of sleep, stress and pain, I didn't find the book helpful.

I did find an article that helped me keep my perspective by reminding me "Don't take it all too seriously"

I've just started reading "Breastfeeding: Keep it Simple" and it seems to be helpful so far, but I agree with Chrisy the best resource has been the lactation consultant at my pediatrician's office. I'm very lucky to have this option.

Also, great article Chrisy! That is exactly what I needed right now!

I found So That's What They're For (previously recommended) a great preparation tool as I read it before DD was born. But The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding was an excellent reference book (I also read it before DD was born, but referred to it often).

Jack Newman's "The Ultimate Breastfeeding Book of Answers" is the best book on breastfeeding that you can buy. And, interestingly enough, it is also the book that experts look to as well. I was on the phone with my lactation counselor the other day and she was saying something that sounded familiar. I'll pulled out my book and was able to find the exact page she was reading to me from. She and I discussed Dr. Newman's work and apparently in the world of lactation counselors, he is one of the only Breastfeeding Experts that is doing new research and recommending new strategies, rather than simply re-telling what has already been known for years. Happy Reading!

My new favourite book on breastfeeding is "Breastfeeding Made Simple" by Nancy Mohrbacher and Kathleen Kendall-Tackett.

Below is the link to their website which also has some wonderful information:
