Books on Personal Breastfeeding Experience

Here are 3 books to share with you all. These books are compilations of many stories about breastfeeding experiences, some positive and some negative but all deeply personal and thought provoking. Check them out next time you find time to read. :) It is almost as good as sharing a LLL Meeting with other moms all sharing their tales.

Follow the links to find out more about each book.

In The Breastfeeding Café: Mothers Share the Joys, Challenges & Secrets of Nursing, sociologist and author Barbara L. Behrmann addresses these issues and more. Part cultural critique, part support group, Behrmann weaves together stories with information, insight and facts.

Hirkani's Daughters: Women Who Scale Modern Mountains to Combine Breastfeeding and Working Edited by Jennifer Hicks is a compilation of inspirational tales from women around the world, Hirkani’s Daughters tells the stories of modern employed mothers who have overcome various obstacles to continue breastfeeding. Each woman shares how she evaluated her options, and took the path that worked best for her family.
