This was released on a Monday, I received it on Friday (Amazon pre-order), and I finished it Sunday. As a how-to manual, it's not my favorite (my favorite is Nursing Mother's Companion, but I love love love the anthropological background and all of the discussion of shared nursing arrangements, relactating, our society's "nipplephobia," etc. Good stuff.

Also, Ina May is refreshingly moderate about breastfeeding and weaning - unlike Dr. Sears and others, she resists slavish devotion to the attachment parenting model, instead deferring to the mother's feelings and common sense. I love Ina May!

Anne Can you read it before the end of November and let me know if it's any good? That'd be great.

Inder Ha! You know I will.
