A terrific reference guide. Breastfeeding, while natural, isn't always easy for every single new mother. I couldn't start breastfeeding my first son until he was 3 weeks old, due to his being in the NICU for open-heart surgery. I pumped for three weeks and the nurses and I gave him bottles. We started breastfeeding AFTER he came home from the hospital and I'm convinced we were so successful at breastfeeding so late after birth because of my lactation consultant and this book.

Definitely a bit more on the medical side of things and not a book you just sit down and read cover to cover, but a terrific reference book.
