This is a great book to have on the bookshelf. Lots of practical information, fabulous information on getting a good latch, position tips, etc.; also great info on NIP, pumping for work, etc.

The Common Concerns chapter is especially valuable; covers issues like milk supply, thrush, sore nipples, mastitis, plugged ducts, and all those others things you hopefully never have to deal with.

This is very much a "mothering" manual as well; it promotes a highly nurturing style of parenting, listening to your baby and instincts, and basically just encourages a mother to relax and enjoy her baby.
