If you work in the lactation field, this book should be required reading. It takes a really in-depth look at the history (and demise) of breastfeeding in America starting in the 19th century, and it really opened my eyes to how entrenched the idea that women can't exclusively breastfeed their babies is in American culture. I found the book a little repetitive, which is why I am only giving it 4 stars.

Academic yet super readable social history. For anybody who is into breastfeeding and natural parenting, and wants to get a view of how deeply ingrained some of the brainwashing on these subjects is. It is also Chicago-centric!
