Any breastfeeding book is exciting I suppose. But this one is extra special to me. Because….
My very own breastfeeding story is on page 80!
A year ago I wrote this post about how my story was going to be published in a book! And now I have that book. I am one of only two stories given in the chapter on food sensitivities. At the beginning of the book she says:
“When I put out the call for stories of online breastfeeding support to be submitted for this book, I received hundreds of responses from mothers willing to share their experiences.”
I had no idea that so many people offered their stories, and I am so honored that she chose my story to be in her book.
This isn’t a very good book review since I haven’t actually read the whole book yet. But I was too excited to let you all know that I got the book! 🙂 So far from what I’ve read it’s a great book. In each chapter it has several personal stories from moms on each of these topics:
Pumping and Working
Breastfeeding After Losing a Child
Breastfeeding Preemies in the NICU
Too Little, Too Much: IGT and BFAR
Tongue Tie and Lip Tie
Breastfeeding with Depression and Mood Disorders
The Unexpected While Pregnant
At the end of the book she has several pages of resources to help you with any breastfeeding troubles. It looks like a great book, but of course I’d say that because my story is in it. 😉
I’ve saved a hand written note from the author for over a year so I could tape it into my book. And today I did just that!
