Abstract:

All parents want the best for their babies, and there's no doubt about the fact that human milk is the ideal food for human babies. What's the secret of successful breastfeeding? For almost fifty years mothers who have been in touch with La Leche League have found the kind of information and support they needed to breastfeed their babies. There's no doubt that you can do it, too! The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding was the first book of its kind, written for mothers by mothers. Over the years, more than two million mothers have turned to it for information and inspiration. The most powerful recommendations of The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding come from those mothers. Many of their success stories are found in its pages. Breastfeeding is more than just a nice "extra" that you may decide to give your baby. It is a significant decision that can affect both of you far into the future. You can count on The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding to give you the information you need to breastfeed your baby.
