Review: Nursing Your Baby: Revised

User Review  - Leslie Lamb - Goodreads

I read the updated 2005 version for the 2nd time. If anyone is wondering about whether they should breast feed, it's a wonderful book and shows you all the benefits to your baby and yourself. I read it again since my second baby is coming soon! Read full review

Review: Nursing Your Baby 4e

User Review  - Elizabeth - Goodreads

This was very thorough, informative, and helpful, but some parts were quite outdated (referring to physicians almost exclusively with male pronouns, suggesting that you teach your husband to clean and cook before the baby comes, etc.). Read full review
