"This truly is the go-to reference for anyone who supports breastfeeding mothers. It is a complete update to Mohrbacher's 2003 "Breastfeeding Answer Book", and now includes current information about tongue-tie, MRSA, Group B strep, breastfeeding after gastric by-pass surgery, current medications, laid back positioning, breast anatomy and milk production ... all heavily referenced and with a decent index. Worth the price and the space on the bookshelf!"
