First Time Mom’s Review

To say I was totally clueless about breastfeeding before listening to this book would be an understatement. I have learned so much and have had many of my concerns and questions addressed within this resource and not just those regarding breastfeeding. I was very pleased and appreciate the fact that this book talks about natural childbirth as well. So, so glad to have been recommended this book by an experienced nursing mother.

Antiquated book, Deeply annoying narrator

Despite claims to the contrary, this book is woefully outdated. It actually has anecdotes from the 1950’s and issue outdated terminology. This combined with the narrator’s cloying, preachy voice makes this a terrible audiobook.

Bottom line, this is a reference book and really not the right format for audio.
