The NCT Book of Breastfeeding by Mary Smale

Cover of

I wanted to write down the details of this book before I sent it back to the library because I thought I might want it again. Then I realised that the fact that I’d read it cover to cover meant it passed my own conditions for inclusion on my booklog. Hopefully I’ll be able to find it again when I want it to help with the practical stuff in a few months time!

I’ve read so many pregnancy and babycare books lately that talk about everything for a page that it was nice to find one that went into real detail on a subject that I wanted to know more about. On the one hand it doesn’t seem that there ought to be enough to say about breastfeeding to fill an entire book but on the other hand I didn’t feel the book was getting at all repetitive and I did feel like I was getting a complete picture of the good stuff and the bad stuff, the technical stuff and the myth stuff.
A lot of what’s talked about here comes down to basic assertiveness but it’s nice to have it detailed and in context.

More information about this book can be found on goodreads.
