Mama Knows Breast: A Beginner’s Guide to Breastfeeding by Andi Silverman
I read “Mama Knows Breast” a couple of weeks before my baby was born. Although I had been to a breastfeeding class at the hospital a few weeks earlier, I was exhausted that night and not at all sure that I had retained much. And if I didn’t remember much then, how was I going to remember anything after giving birth?
But then Andi Silverman sent me a review copy of “Mama Knows Breast: A Beginner’s Guide to Breastfeeding.” I carried it around with my while my husband and I ran errands, and I just kept sitting in the car while he ran in places, soaking up every bit of knowledge that I could. After giving birth I could not consciously remember a single piece of information from the book, but I had internalized enough of it that I felt very confident about breastfeeding. Since then I’ve enjoyed flipping back through it from time to time and have especially enjoyed checking out the ‘from the mouths of moms’ features throughout the different chapters.
If you or someone you know is about to become a breastfeeding beginner, this book can help you feel more confident and, really, what is more important as a new mom?
