About The Nursing Mother's Companion
This was my breastfeeding bible. I've included it in my breastfeeding must-have list. We all have our personal preference for an author's writing style and tone. This book just resonated with me. Unlike other breastfeeding books,  The Nursing Mother's Companion was free of judgement and presented information in a matter-of-fact way. Now in it's 6th edition, the book includes "Survival Guides," has 2 new sections (breast pump and pumping and new growth chart), and an updated appendix. I learned so much about the breast, nursing process, what challenges to expect and how to overcome them, resources available, and the role of others from this book. As a pregnant woman who was intent on breastfeeding my son, I thought this book was very informative, comprehensive, and easy to read. I highly recommend it to anyone considering breastfeeding.
