    1. I found the nutrition information in this book really fascinating. She writes in such a way that I really have made some changes to our diet. Although, sometimes when I was reading it, I would feel like I had to change our diet completely and that would stress me out. I prefer to do baby steps.I'm a nursing mom who has had to supplement all four of my children due to my body only making skim milk and slow "delivery" or let-down. I tried to include more of the healthy fats, like she recommends, b [...]

    2. I really enjoyed this book. I will be picking it up again come next March/April to prepare for this next baby but for now I will let it collect a little bit of dust. It is definitely a reference book. I did find it a little hard to follow as I felt the information was all over the place and not as organized as my Type A brain likes to follow : ) But it was very neat to learn about the effects of natural foods on your body even beyond breastfeeding. I especially enjoyed learning about the differe [...]

    3. This is a wonderful book for any breastfeeding mom, especially one interested in nutrition and alternative medicine. I used some of her recommendations to help me overcome a mild case of mastitis without having to resort to antibiotics. She recommends eating a whole foods diet with minimal processed foods and offers suggestions on how a busy new mom can cook and prepare nourishing foods for herself and her family. I found her writing to be very encouraging and supportive and will often re-read a [...]

    4. This book was good although not terribly helpful for me since the focus was on fixing breastfeeding "issues" which, I haven't really had. How to boost your supply, how to get around duct problems, how to handle infectionsc. Might be good to keep around for reference just in case. I kind of thought it would have more information about breastfeeding nutrition which, the author did touch on lightly to make your milk more deeply nutritious via foods you eatc. Liked that part of the book a lot. Will [...]

    5. What a fantastic book full of resources, and advice. As a mom, I just struggled with milk production for my little one. I tried all sort of things. I decided to take a different approach. I bought this book and ordered it with another one. Frankly I don't remember what the other one said as this book just is far too important now in my life. It gives you different things to try, naturally. It is full on herbal, condiment and food advice which can make your nursing experience more gratifying. I b [...]

    6. 5 stars for comprehensive information on this topic, 1 star for Organization, so over all, it was ok. Would I recommend it, absolutely. I'd also recommend the author publish a new edition.The information seems to be well researched but is presented in spatterings here and there. Also in an effort to be comprehensive some information may contradict itself. Nevertheless I appreciate the inclusion of "old wives tales" as they may ring true for some and not for others.

    7. This book tries to include every possible bit of information from any old wives' tales and rumors as well as science. It even contradicts its own advice in separate chapters. Better not to read it at all, since without verifying info from other sources an uninformed reader wouldn't be able to tell what's true and what's very questionable.

    8. Mother Food by Hilary Jacobson is an interesting resource, but not an interesting read. Her purpose is laudable - but it really is "compiled as an informational guide". There is not much of a narrative, but for the sake of so much information, that's easy to forgive.

    9. This book really needs to get out to the mainstream public. Truly some very helpful tips for low milk supply, and just staying healthy in general. The writing style is wonderful and conversational.

    10. I am totally fascinated. I love stuff on nutrition and thought I knew it all, but this book is yet another eye-opener.

    11. Perfect for nursing mothers who want to know more than how to get the milk to come out or get the baby latched on.

    12. An absolute necessary read for any breastfeeding mom! Full of interesting and informative information. It has great book about food and diet as well (for anyone). Highly recommend.

    13. A fantastic book for lactating moms. Full of really great nutrtional and herbal information. This book was invaluable to me and I am sure I will be reading it again when this baby comes.
