Haiku of The Day It’s short, easy to read, non-preachy, and full of trendy little illustrations that explain things like what the hell the football hold really is.

Tara Brooke at The Power of Birth As a birth doula I will recommend this book to all of my clients. It takes an honest, encouraging and humurous approach to breastfeeding. I love the fact that it is compact, and easy to find information at 3 AM in the morning with one eye open. Andi finds a way of explaining all the elements without making you feel overwhelmed.

Rancid Raves, who also posts at A BoobLog: …overall, I just loved this book and declare it to be an “Inhaler.” The illustrations are quirky and the text is light and humorous.

Per my quick Amazon searches, there simply aren’t any fun, positive books regarding breastfeeding. Who wants to read a textbook if they don’t have to? I’d rather have a friend holding my hand – and this book does just that by walking you through it in a reassuring and comforting manner….
