Saggy Boobs and other Breastfeeding Myths is a fun simple book dispelling common breastfeeding myths such as: you have to stop breastfeeding to return to work, you’ll lose your identity and just be a breastfeeding machine, breastfeeding makes your boobs saggy, breastfeeding is difficult… It’s full of useful information presented simply and is beautifully illustrated with sketches and images of embroidery.
Do bottle fed babies sleep better and feed longer than breastfed babies? Are modern formula milks as good as breastmilk? Are breastfed babies woozies that want picking up all the time? And is it really easier and more convenient to bottle-feed?
Many women thinking about breastfeeding their babies are put off by rumours and myths. In their award-winning, beautifully illustrated book infant feeding specialist Val Finigan and embroidery artist Lou Gardiner tackle commonly held beliefs about breastfeeding with wisdom, warmth and wit.
