Published Reviews

    "This is the most complete guide to breastfeeding available. It is comprehensive, easy to read, and covers all pertinent aspects. The book is a strong advocate for breastfeeding, which is a laudable objective. It should be part of every perinatal clinician's library, where it will be referred to often. As a clinician, I have found the appendixes and protocols, which make up the last third of the book, the most helpful aspects of this book." - Jay P. Goldsmith, MD(Tulane University School of Medicine), Excerpts from Doody’s review service, Rating - 5 Stars!
