Breastfeeding has numerous benefits for both mother and child-including strong evidence that breastfed children have fewer illnesses and higher intelligence. However, many nursing mothers often struggle with the challenges associated with breastfeeding successfully. While 74% of American women try breastfeeding only 11% are still breastfeeding at 6 months due to the pain and difficulty associated with it. Breastfeeding: The Complete Illustrated Guide gives mothers the practical instruction they need to ensure a healthy, positive experience for themselves and their child. Over 100 original step-by-step photographs set this book apart from the competition as well as concise and authoritative instruction from veteran doula, author, and About.com expert, Robin Weiss.

Weiss, Robin Elise. The Better Way To Breastfeed. Fair Winds: Quayside. 2010. c.304p. illus. index. ISBN 9781592334223. pap. $19.99. healthBreast feeding isn t an easy topic to write about, and Weiss ("The Complete Illustrated Pregnancy Companion") explains upfront her goal to help moms stay committed to their choice to breast-feed. She does this through information she makes it a point to bust the myths about breast feeding (e.g., small-breasted women won t produce enough milk, breast feeding hurts) with facts. Weiss occasionally refers to medical studies or journal articles, but most of her information isn t cited and occasionally seems overstated. Some readers may be put off by her encouragement to practice child-led weaning or tandem nursing; others will find it refreshing to have these subjects addressed. Supplementing is referenced, but formula is never mentioned, which may disappoint moms with questions about starting their breast-fed baby on formula. The book gives plenty of good advice about pumping milk at work for those who choose this route. VERDICT A good choice for readers open to natural or attachment parenting who want the latest information to back up their choice to breast-feed. Library Journal, Sept. 1, 2010"
