Feb 06, 2009I finally sat down with this new release and was very impressed. I had the good fortune of attending a conference where Lisa Marasco was one of the keynote speakers, but this book is going to be an invaluable reference for my practice.
Feb 27, 2013After flipping through 3 breastfeeding books for help with my low milk supply, none of them had more than 3 or 4 helpful pages in them and most were along the lines of "are you really sure there's a problem or are you just doing something wrong?." One book, rather than exploring this in detail, recommended getting THIS book if you really wanted to know what was up. I am so glad I did. It presents the milk-making equation and breaks down in a simple yet analytic way how to go through your own After flipping through 3 breastfeeding books for help with my low milk supply, none of them had more than 3 or 4 helpful pages in them and most were along the lines of "are you really sure there's a problem or are you just doing something wrong?." One book, rather than exploring this in detail, recommended getting THIS book if you really wanted to know what was up. I am so glad I did. It presents the milk-making equation and breaks down in a simple yet analytic way how to go through your own process of elimination to address the causes of low milk supply. I like how the authors use analogies to help explain concepts yet do not skimp on technical medical information and terms. This book is empowering and even if you don't "fix" your problem and exclusively breastfeed, it builds you up and helps you rest assured to do the most with what you have (there are even sections on coping with your emotions about low milk supply and what to do for your next pregnancy). ...more
Mar 17, 2009I wish this book was a must read for all mothers - those who think they dont have enough milk ( but actually do , they just are not feeding the baby enough) and those who dont . Its excellent particularly the last chapter - making peace with your supply. I have 4 copies - 3 out on loan at moment :)
Sep 26, 2017This is a really fantastic resource for anyone dealing with concerns about milk supply, or for anyone who works with breastfeeding families.
Aug 03, 2012I cannot recommend this book enough. I truly wish I had had this book with my first child; I can't help but think that I would have had fewer supply issues with this book on hand. I didn't have nearly the feeding/milk supply issues with my second but it was a comfort in those first few months. Excellent resource for pregnant or breastfeeding moms to have on hand!
Jan 18, 2011This book contains a lot of excellent information and solutions. It covers food and herbal galactogues - both of which have given me the very best results when building up milk supply. Definitely worth reading if you suffer from milk supply problems. I also recommend the amazing book, "Mother Food" by Hilary Jacobson.
Mar 18, 2012A really informative and supportive book for people struggling to breastfeed. It's very non-judgemental and has some excellent ideas and resources. It helps you make the most of what you have if you can't breastfeed exclusively and I was particularly impressed with the information on available herbal remedies.
May 03, 2013This little book is helpful! I own it, and still find myself referring to it. There’s a lot of knowledge out there that isn’t shared these days concerning breastfeeding and breastmilk supply. As a working Mom, it is very difficult to keep your supply levels up, especially if you are trying for a year or more! Lots of little tidbits of helpful information, plus the low down on supplements.
Nov 03, 2016Very useful book. I learned most of what was in here already but I learned a few gems (like when I have my second kid I will need a new pump, I should have been taking vitamin B12 from the start as a breastfeeding vegetarian, and calcium will help keep your supply even when you're on your period). If you think you are having milk supply issues this is definitely a book you should read.
Sep 23, 2014Sometimes small things stick out about a book, and although I liked this overall, I can't believe the authors put vegetarianism under the heading "Eating Disorders" right next to anorexia and bulimia. Still gave it four stars for all the useful information, but seriously? A disorder?
Mar 11, 2016Fantastic resource!
Mar 19, 2015This book contains great advice on how to determine the cause of your supply problems. It also has good information on common, and uncommon, herbs, foods, and medications that can affect your milk supply; in addition to their other side effects.
Jan 08, 2013An excellent read for the nursing Mother who has or thinks she has milk supply issues. Non judgemental and covers numerous approaches to building milk supply. I recommend it to my mothers who are really struggling with milk supply.
Jan 16, 2009This was the most informative book I have ever read concerning low milk supply specificly. With the informaition I learned, I am well on my way to being able to successfully breastfeed my baby to be after many struggles and frustrations with previous attempts at nursing.
Jul 30, 2012I got this book at the recommendation of my lactation consultant and read it over a weekend. The advice is really good and I learned a lot, which is saying something because I'm a second time parent who breastfed my first kid. Granted, I didn't have breastfeeding issues with my first, so it would seem that I didn't know as much as I thought.
Nov 17, 2012An AMAZING, comprehensive guide to how your body makes milk and how to try to get it to make more. If you haven't given birth yet and you really want to breastfeed, get this book and read chapter 5 "Getting Your Milk Supply off to a Good Start" to help head off problems so you won't need to try to make more milk!
Aug 20, 2012This was a really good book, especially considering the difficulties I had with breastfeeding. While I can't go back and change what already happened, I can be more confident about future breastfeeding endeavors.
Nov 19, 2014Positive motivation to continue on the journey of breastfeeding
Apr 16, 2013A great resource for the mom desiring more milk. I'm glad I'm reading this a couple weeks before giving birth, but will definitely keep it around to use it as a reference in case any nursing problems arise after the baby is born. The intended audience is for those with specific problems as opposed to simply nursing in general, that said since nursing in general seems to have enough problems, this is a great book to at least flip through for those expecting to breastfeed.
Sep 20, 2014A must read for any mother concerned about her supply. It has great information about basics and what you should expect and recognizing when supplementation is needed. All breastfeeding helpers should read this book to help support moms. I have skimmed through several chapters and have recommended it several times over because I could tell that it was a quality book but this was my first time reading the whole thing.
Apr 05, 2009This is an invaluable resource both for lactation professionals and for any mother who has ever had a concern about her milk supply. The book (1) helps identify whether there is indeed a problem with supply, (2) discusses possible physical, hormonal, and psychological causes for low milk supply, and (3) offers steps to take to increase milk supply. Even after two years as a breastfeeding counselor I learned a great deal from this book. It's easy to read but packed with valuable information.
Mar 18, 2019I started reading this with my second baby while I was pumping at work. I did this because I felt like my supply had dropped after I returned to work. I would definitely say the information in the book is well-researched and good, but really needs to be read either during pregnancy or right after the baby is born to get the best use out of it.
Dec 10, 2018Never thought I'd be reading/reviewing a book like this, but life changes when you have a baby. I was a little hesitant to order this given that I really disliked another book by the same author, but I liked the tone of this one much more and found it very helpful. Though it didn't necessarily help me "solve my problem" of low milk production, it helped me understand the possible factors better and I now feel more empowered with more knowledge about feeding my baby.
