to Expect When You're Breastfeeding... And
What If You Can't? Paperback
160 pages. Size: 21.4 x 13.4
x 1.8 cm. Pub: 2006
Amazon Customer Review: Excellent,
practical advice, 9 Jan 2008
By Sarah "Sarah" (London, UK)
I breastfed my 2 babies for a year each
and used Clare's book as my main reference
guide. I found the advice invaluable, particularly
in the first few days, and recommend it
to all my friends.
Womanly Art of Breastfeeding (La
Leche League International Book) Paperback
463 pages. Size: 22.6 x 15 x
3.3 cm. Pub: 2007
I love this book. It gives both the basics
on how to breastfeed and also lots of more
general parenting information. It also looks
at the comman and not so comman problems and
gives helpful and reassuring advice. Although
quite American sometimes the basic mother
baby relationship is the same the world over!
I have referred to my copy at least once a
week over the past 20 months of breastfeeding.

book is clearly laid out in sections covering
all aspects of baby massage, from babies

(Essential Childcare) Paperback by Peter Walker
96 Pages. Size: 24.4 x 17
x 2 cm. Pub: 2005
I found this book extremely
helpful. Explanations are clear and concise.
Sketches really help visualise how to do
it. Really helpful if you are wanting to
give it a go but you are not sure where
to start or whether you are doing things
correctly. The chapters on development are
very good too.

How to Calm, Connect and Communicate with
Your Baby Paperback.
By Tracy Hogg (Author)
304 pages. Size: 22.4 x 15.2
x 2.6 cm. Pub: 2001
Clearly a remarkable person, Tracy
Hogg (the "baby whisperer") has an
impressive ability to understand and relate
to babies. Herself a mother, she is an experienced
maternity nurse and has derived her approach
from her dealings with countless babies and
their families. Forgiving and sympathetic in
style, her book is well written, immensely readable
and is full of gems and shrewd observations
that even the seasoned parent may not have worked
