Currently Reading: Nursing Your Baby


Nursing Your Baby (4th ed) by Karen & Gale Pryor

I’ve read loads of breastfeeding books, and pregnancy books in general, but this was my fave breastfeeding book ever.  It was the least judgey, and the most informative of all the good, bad and ugly of nursing your baby from birth to…however long you want to….

Giving a side eye to:

Anyway, I got this book from the library but I’ve got it in my amazon shopping cart now because it’s one that I’d like to have on hand during the ups and downs of nursing my lil man once he gets here. I can see myself referring to this book a lot.

Nursing Your Baby (4th Ed) is written very practically, and while being super informative and chock full of good ideas and tips…it’s also very reassuring and encouraging.  Reading it makes you feel like no matter what you can provide exactly what your baby needs, it’s a confidence booster for a nervous mommy-to-be.

Have you read any great pregnancy, breastfeeding or parenting books lately?

I haven't read any books on breastfeeding, but I will say that breastfeeding is a wonderful bonding experience! I love nursing my Abby! Now that I am working I have to pump rather than nurse during the day and while I hate pumping I love my pump. If you are going to pump I highly recommend the Medela brand!

Once you get past the first few days or weeks of nursing it'll be second nature. I wish you all the best. I love nursing, even more so now that I'm back at work. Never in a million years thought I would say that. Setting realistic milestones and goals works for me. Originally I just wanted to try because I did not know if I could stand the pain, then I said 3 months, then 6 months. Now I'm hoping to go up to a year. It makes me feel very connected to my little guy. Best of luck.

I might get this book. Even though I breastfed my daughter, I never read a single book or publication about breastfeeding. I hope you have a smooth breastfeeding journey! It is such a great bonding experience and saves money. We had to switch to formula after 6 months, and boy oh boy was that expensive!
