  • what to expect when your're expecting and what to expect the first year REALLY helped me. so much Ive ever bought what to expect the toddler years. also my WIC lactation consultant helped out alot.

  • The Nursing Mother's Companion, or The Breatfeeding Book...

    I personally don't care much for the What To Expect books...they address everything as a problem, and can cause unnecessary paranoia. :)

  • The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding

    ...and I'd avoide the "What to expect..." books.  A LOT of outdated info.

  • I agree with the Womanly Art of Breastfeeding and WHat they are there for. The what to expect books are terrible. I wouldn't take any of the advice in them.
