    The book starts out well by going into the debate on the caloric needs of the average nursing mother. From there the author touches on a few other important topics like the effects (or lack thereof) of certain foods/food groups on babies and breastmilk, the need for exercise (and the levels at which the nursing mother should ease back into it), and useful tips for the busy mother to plan meals for her and her family.

I felt that the author overreached a little bit towards the end when she started going in to feeding children, the effects of television on children, and other similar topics. Her research did not seem as sound and they were completely off-topic for this book. The author also makes the mild assumption that there will be lots of people on hand to help. As a mother that does not have a huge local support network, I found some of her suggestions to be non-viable for my lifestyle. I also felt like the author pump-shamed a bit and, as a large-breasted mother whose child could not latch and therefore mainly a pump user, this really discouraged me. All in all the book has some good suggestions and has specialized topic points for mothers of multiples, mothers who gave birth via cesarean, and other such subgroups within the overall group of "new mothers". But if you've done some general reading on fitness and don't fall into the above subgroups, there's a very good chance that the information on a nursing mother's caloric needs and the effect/non-effect of food on babies and breastmilk is about all you'll really need.

    I find a lot of issues with this one: -"Breast is Best" shaming formula feeding mothers is annoying and unrealistic in this day and age. There are many reasons why a mother might not be able to breastfeed. A mom could need medications that would be dangerous to transfer to breastmilk. She might have her own medical reasons why she can't produce a sufficient supply of milk. She might have a special needs child who for whatever reason cannot breastfeed.

She might have her own medical reasons why she can't produce a sufficient supply of milk. She might have a special needs child who for whatever reason cannot breastfeed. It is okay to state the facts about how breastfeeding is *generally* the superior way to feed, but it is also crucial to mention the reasons why formula feeding or formula supplementing might be necessary. -Way too much focus on a low-fat diet. Pushing low-fat diets is bad science, outdated, and studies have shown that a healthy amount of fats in the diet is crucial to both mom and baby. -No mention of help for undersuppliers for boosting milk supply and those who are exclusively pumping (which I hoped to find in this book)

    This book is too out of date to be helpful. It advocates a low fat high carbohydrate diet which doesn't mesh with current science. Chapter 3 about recommended nutrients and food sources that provide them was helpful, so if you come across this book in the library that is worth reading. This book is too out of date to be helpful.

    Well-written, straightforward and simple. I appreciated that it wasn't cheesy or trying too hard to be entertaining. It just provided information, was backed by solid science, and offered a great overview of the nutrition you need while breastfeeding. My big issue is that she advocates low-fat products and artificial sugars. I am against fake sugars and low-fat products are generally just compensated with extra sugars and are not healthy. Aside from that and some other small nutritional discrepa Well-written, straightforward and simple. I appreciated that it wasn't cheesy or trying too hard to be entertaining.

    This is a book about eating habits and principles that can be applied by anybody, not just a nursing mom. In it I found what are the foods that contain every needed vitamin and what are these vitamins good for. Now I have on my fridge a list with foods from the most important 6 categories of food that we need to eat, the proper quantities per day and the vitamins contained in them. And here is a list with 10 things that I learned from it: http://readlearnlovedo.tumblr.com/pos...

    Nothing new or especially insightful in here for anyone who's given proper thought to / done any reading on nutrition before. The menu suggestions are incredibly bland, and a bit out-of-date (e.g., author recommends lots of non-fat dairy products and processed "health foods" like fortified breakfast cereal, instead of well-rounded whole foods based diet).
