  1. Thank you for writing a post highlighting the importance of women being able to see other women nurse their babies. I think that is one of the things that helped me nurse my babies so effortlessly while many women struggle.

    But I think that Breastfeeding with Comfort and Joy is an excellent breastfeeding book — not just for the beautiful pictures that it has, but also for allowing the pictures to “speak” for themselves without having extraneous text. One of the problems I have with so many of the other breastfeeding books on the market is that they talk too much of problems and difficulties, and make it sound as if breastfeeding is a monumentally difficult task, fraught with difficulty, with problems being the norm. While some women may need more intensive help with breastfeeding issues, the books I read prior to first giving birth just filled me with fear. I wondered if I could even breastfeed! I was so afraid of all the problems the books outlined as being possible, because they made it sound like having problems was normal. That Laura Keegan’s book focuses on “what is right” is what makes me put this book at the top of my breastfeeding recommended resources. The mothers I have loaned my copy to echo the praise.

  2. Kathy… you said everything I wanted too!

  3. Wonderful, Adria!
    I use Dr Newman’s DVD “Visual Guide to Breastfeeding” as an important teaching tool with my clients. I also encourage them to attend a LLL meeting. I always tell them that while they may not take away a ton of immediately useful information (most meetings tend to focus on issues with older babies/children… equally as important, but not quite in context yet for a pregnant mama) they will always, always get to see babies at breast. So important!!

  4. Excellent blog post. I certainly love this website.
    Keep it up!
