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, ...more

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.

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

Read it in two sittings in the train, great book. It allowed me to get an idea of the issues that my girlfriend and other women have breastfeeding.

Although this book is good, I'm cautious in recommending this book as it briefly mentions chiropracty as a remedy for the author's baby's trouble with breastfeeding trouble.

I received a preview copy in return for an honest review.

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.

I really needed to hear some of the stories in this book as I was struggling with breastfeeding in the beginning.

I really enjoyed this, but wow, the ebook was poorly edited.

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 ...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 ...more
