The book that really got me through the beginning months was The Nursing Mothers Companion. It really covered EVERYTHING I needed it to. I probably would've quit without it. I didnt have high-speed back then, and didnt know a soul who was/or did nurse.
Around 7 months, I found
www.kellymom.com. Another lifesaver. But I see someone already listed it. It really is great.

A great book that brought great insight on breastfeeding
The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding
by La Leche League International

I was actually going to stop breastfeeding out of being too frustrated until I read this book!

The book New Mother's Guide To Breastfeeding helped us out tremendously! My daughter had trouble latching and it along with our doctor, nutritionist and lactation consultant was a life saver. I would read and then see my baby doing what it said and that gave me peace of mind that my daughter and I we're going to get through it and that she wasn't starving in the meantime.
