I thought it only fitting to celebrate National Breastfeeding Month by reading Le Leche League International’s gem The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding. The copy of the book that I had was the edition printed in 1997, which has since been revised several times. Beings I have started a new adventure with LLLI, I opted to purchase the newest 8th version. Having reading the earlier edition I was not really expecting to read anything too different. I am pleased to say I was wrong. The newest edition is like reading a completely different book. I am going to save the rest for “What’s Jenn Reading.”
The information available on the benefits of nursing your child over a bottle continues to mount each year. So in this theme I thought I would add a few links which I have found interesting that have been passed to me for review. I mean not to offend anyone who bottle fed their precious baby, but rather to encourage those who are seeking a successful breastfeeding relationship.
