We cheer “Breastfeeding! Yay!” on social media, and around our female friends with feminist pride. But at 3 a.m. you may be cudgeling yourself with, “Oh, dear god, what have we done?” Intellectually, we all know it’s better for our babies, and instinctually, many of us want to do it. But our pregnant daydreaming does little to prepare us for the pain, frustration, self-jud ...more

Marieke
This is not a science or parenting book. It's your friend talking to you so you don't feel alone or like a freak when things aren't going the way you had planned or imagined they would. If anything in life throws you curve balls, it's becoming a parent; perhaps especially becoming a mom and trying to breast feed. I was a bit of an emotional wreck after coming home with a baby that had spent a week in the NICU and was mostly drinking from bottles--either my pumped milk or a formula supplement. Th ...more

The Bible of Breastfeeding
This review is from: Breastfeeding Is a Bitch: But we lovingly do it anyway (Paperback) By Cassi Clark
Breastfeeding is a Bitch will suck you in like a baby to a Mommy's nipple. If You have 'Been There, Done That', 'Are Doing That Now', 'Have Tried That', or 'Think You Want To Do That' this is the book for you. This book will help you to realize we all had problems and weird or bad feelings about breastfeeding. I think one of the main points is there is help somewhere an

Shelves: non-fiction
Cassi Clark has hit virtually every obstacle along the path to successful breastfeeding, and surmounted them. This book, full of the stories of women who have gone before, is the perfect companion for a woman who is contemplating, anticipating, or struggling with breastfeeding. It is absolutely judgement free, acknowledging that sometimes, breastfeeding is just a bitch.

WordsAPlenty received this book in exchange for an honest review. Cassi Clark is an Indie B.R.A.G. Medallion author.


Cassi Clark, author of Breastfeeding is a Bitch: But, We Lovingly Do It Anyway is a highly entertaining read that hits home for those of us who have been highly successful or tremendously utter failures at breastfeeding our newborn babies. Breastfeeding is touted as the “right” thing to do for our children and many mothers look forward to the bonding that is reported to happen dur

Shelves: wrote-it
I wrote Breastfeeding is a Bitch, But We Lovingly Do it Anyway, while trying to nurse my first and only child. The trouble and trauma was so all consuming, I needed help. So in addition to frantic calls to LCs, I reached out (at 5:00am) to every woman I'd ever met who had a baby. The stories in the book are their replies. Their stories helped me through, and I hope they help you too. I intentionally chose to keep the book commiserative (and humorous) and not political because parents need suppor ...more

This was a fun, fast read that definitely does not hide the difficulties of breastfeeding. In fact, it highlights them to the point that it's what the book is about. If you want a book about how to breastfeed and the techniques and such.... this is not the book you are looking for. If you are looking for a book that will tell you the truth- that breastfeeding isn't always easy and that people will judge you no matter what you do- then go ahead and read this. I love the fact that Cassi Clark is h ...more

Though my own baby is well past nursing age, I found "Breastfeeding" to be relevant and engaging. Cassi Clark's story is intimate, witty and disarming. She reminds us that we do not need permission to listen to our own needs and those of our babies. I felt connected to the lives of all the women who contributed their own stories, and wish that I had had a copy of this book to supplement the beloved "What to expect..." during my own breastfeeding experience.Breastfeeding is a Bitch: But We Loving ...more

I thought this was going to be a humorous book, but it was more informational and what to expect if you are going to be breastfeeding. The stories were honest, informative, and tell it like it is. Moms most likely can relate. For those that aren't moms and don't want to be (like me), this may not be the best book to read. Some of the things described in the book only add to my 'I'm so glad I never had kids' list. ...more
