Mommy Reads: Food of Love by Kate Evans
I do not own a lot of breastfeeding books since most of the information is available online BUT this is one of the simplest and most fun to read ones that I have encountered. I enjoy reading this book because I can relate to it a lot. It also has a lot of illustrations that add humor to the topic. Kudos to the author Kate Evans for using her skills as a cartoonist to give the topic a fresh perspective.
The book covers a wide range of topics from breastfeeding basics to toddler nursing and of course weaning. It has a chapter for troubleshooting common breastfeeding problems as well as how to make breastfeeding part of your lifestyle. Its main message is breastfeeding is best, and with the right attitude and information, it can actually be a fun and pleasurable experience for the whole family.
So if you are a new (or soon to be ) mom, why not check out this book? I bought mine online but please do let me know if you happen to come across it at our local bookstores.
