Re: Submit your Breastfeeding Book Reviews!

Breasts, by Genichiro Yagyo is an amazing children's book, ages 5-9. The 28 page book explains the nature and development of breasts and how mother's produce milk and breastfeed. There is a description of how milk is made, how babies breastfeed and nuzzle against their mother's breasts, the transition from breastmilk to solids after a year.

The pictures are simple drawings with humor. Some cute lines:

"When a baby grabs hold of the breast and sucks on the nipple (glug glug glug), milk flows from it. Babies love their mother's breasts because they're round, soft and warm- and they smell nice, too."

"As long as babies feel this way, they keep on drinking their mothers' milk.... Once a baby no longer drinks mother's milk, it stops flowing from her breasts. This is how babies say goodbye to their mother's breasts"

The breasts book is a part of a body series. Contemplating Your Bellybuttonbook depicts how the baby is connected to mother in the womb, a birth (with mom squatting!!), and then the connection continues with breastfeeding. Love this book as well.

The other body books are:
The Gas We Pass
Everybody Poops
The Holes in Your Nose
All About Scabs

Working without Weaning: A working mother's guide to breastfeeding [Paperback], by Kirsten Berggren, was invaluable for me as a full time working mom. It gave me practical easy to use advice, with a good dose of humor, and general baby tips. Talks about child care choices as well. It is a hard to find book, I found it at a baby boutique/breastfeeding store. But it is well worth it, if you can find a copy. Especially good for first time moms.

Adventures in Tandem Nursing

I literally started to cry while reading the first chapter of this book. It made me feel better about everything I was going through breastfeeding my 2 year old while pregnant with my son. There is a lot of input from mothers in this book and it touched on a lot of what I was going through in terms of aversion to breastfeeding my toddler. It made me feel a lot better about continuing to nurse and about weaning when I wanted to wean my toddler while continuing to breastfeed my infant. Best idea in the book for me was counting my toddler down while she nursed (5 or 10 seconds). It kept me sane and allowed her to have brief comfort. I never would have thought of that on my own.

Re: Submit your Breastfeeding Book Reviews!

I read and loved two breastfeeding books:

The Nursing Mother's Companion by Kathleen Huggins
A comprehensive guide to breastfeeding.

Making More Milk by West and Marasco
The best resource I found on increasing supply.

Re: Submit your Breastfeeding Book Reviews!

Chiming in on The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding. Even after bf 2 ds, it's been awhile (they're 8 and 10 now!) Expecting our 3rd LO July 5th, and so glad I re-read it again. I had forgotten a Lot!. Very encouraging. Reminded me about wanting to try laid back breastfeeding this time, as side-lying always made my back hurt even with pillows.
