I had previously mentioned M.I.L.C.’s Facebook awareness effort that breastfeeding is not obscene. In honor of the beautiful pictures of women breastfeeding their babies, Laura Keegan, author of Breastfeeding with Comfort and Joy is offering $10 off the price of her book, bringing the cost down from $35 to just $25. (Clicking on the picture of the book’s front cover will allow you to see excerpts from the book.) The code you’ll need to enter is Joy10 — and it’s only for today! I got a copy of the book a few days ago, and would highly recommend it to anyone who has any contact with a woman who may by any stretch of the imagination ever nurse her babies — pregnant women, just-had-a-baby women, doulas, midwives, lactation consultants — everyone! The pictures are just gorgeous — all those chubby “milk-drunk” babies are just delicious, plus the wonderful close-up pictures of correct positioning and latching, and the simple step-by-step instructions. As Dr. Christiane Northrup said, it *is* “like having a wise and loving grandmother” teach you how to breastfeed your baby, with comfort and joy.
I’ve just finished reading the book, and will be posting my glowing review of it soon, but I had to dash this off quickly to give you time to order the book today, December 27.
