I only bf Thomas for 2 weeks, I had lots of problems (plugged ducts, nighttime refusal) and was a nervous new mom and quit because I was miserable. This time I really want to try to go longer and hope I'm not as much of a nervous Nellie. I'd like to get a book to have handy. Can anyone recommend something for me? I saw one today, Complete Guide for Nursing Mom...I think, something like that, but wanted to ask around first to see what you all recommend.

Thanks!

It's been so long since I've breastfed. tongue.gif I've got a bunch of books at home, if I remember tonight I'll post the titles.

I agree with julesmom AND I would say for a fun, but educational read try "So That's What They Are For? - Breastfeeding Basics" by Janet Tamaro. I buy that book for every friend who is a new mom and BF. thumb.gif

Here's some that were recommended by Parenting Club members when we had a discussion about this awhile back:
http://www.parentingclub.com/resources/reading/index.php#bf

Also, I would talk to the hospital that you are going to deliver in. The hospital we chose had educational classes on BF (which they gave me a ton of resources to read) and they set it up for a Lactation consultant to come to my room after Ashley was born. The LC was wonderful and gave me her card and was available if I needed her. They had LCs that would come out to your home too. But, before I asked what kind of resources were available, I had no idea that they had this program.

I agree w/Dee Dee on the LC. I would have never succeeded with Kylie if it wasn't for the LC who helped me over and over again. I had so many issues and "malfunctions" rolleyes.gif I would have never succeeded on my own or with the help of any book.
