Editorial ReviewBreast 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
