Parent Reviews and Comments

I was given this book as a baby shower present (which I thought was a great idea) from a friend. 

I didn't get around to reading it until my bub arrived (had it with me in hospital) but was glad to have it! 

I found the book to be full of useful information and advice on breastfeeding. Since reading it through, I have also gone back to use it as a reference for little things I wanted to check on (ie mastitis, EBM storage, medications safe to take). 

A definite read for a first time breast feeder who wants straight forward and practical information. 


I also recieved this when I joined the ABA.  I loved it in the early days when everything was going wrong - the ABA consultants even directed me to specifica pages when I called them, whichwas really helpful.

However, it is pretty text-dense which makes it difficult to follow when I wanted a really quick answer.

Overall, a nice gift from the ABA and i've definitely utilised it frequently!

I received this book when I joined the ABA. It was really helpful in discussing the basics of breastfeeding. It doesn't go in depth enough when dealing with issues of attachment so you'll find more information from their website or by calling a counsellor. I did find it a useful reference when I had mastitis or needed to freeze breast milk. It even deals with feeding twins. Overall it is a good basic book that covers all the topics of breastfeeding and it has lovely pictures in it too.
I was given this book when I was pregnant with my first child. I found it very technically informative but sometimes not very personal. I would recommend it was still one of the most helpful books I read. Great to keep on hand for things that pop up (ie. mastitis, weaning etc).
