Breastfeeding my children has been extremely important to me. It was something that I decided from the beginning that I was going to do and I would do ANYTHING to make it happen. My first experience was horrible. Grady had a tongue tie and had difficulty latching. It was excruciatingly painful….but I stuck it out. Read lots of books, met with an LC numerous times, and had his tongue clipped. One of the books I wish I would have had at my disposal during that time is Baby-Led Breastfeeding. I recently had the opportunity to read it and below you’ll find my thoughts.
Baby-Led Breastfeeding Review:
I wish I would have had this book before I ever started breastfeeding – like during my pregnancy with Grady. Now that I’ve breastfed Grady and I’m now breastfeeding Haley, there’s not much in the book that I don’t know. My point……is that it’s a fabulous book for beginners. It’s easy to read, straightforward, and goes over all the basics. Not too much information to worry you or stress you out (like all baby books I read when I was pregnant), but enough so that you’ll know what you’re doing and have a great resource to turn to if you have any problems.
The book covers breastfeeding from the beginning, to the middle, to the end – all the while keeping it baby-led. You’ll learn to recognize your baby’s cues and follow their lead for easy nursing. You’ll also find tons of information and resources to turn to when it’s not so “easy.” I love the ful color photos in the middle of the book that shows steps to a good latch, what your baby’s poop should look like, and even what biological nursing looks like. And the Quick Reference Guide at the back of the book is great if you need a quick answer.
Over all, Baby-Led Breastfeeding is a great resource for new moms! Have you read it?
BUY IT: You can purchase Baby-Led Breastfeeding by Gill Rapley and Tracey Murkett (the same authors of Baby-Led Weaning) through your typical book retailers including Amazon for $14.95 or less. It’s currently listed at $11.21 – a great price for a book full of great information and resources.
