Several interesting breastfeeding books are scheduled to come out in 2010! Here’s a sampling of what to watch out for in the coming months.
Due out in March 30, 2010, this book appears to be a medical textbook on breastfeeding. The medical community could certainly use more breastfeeding education!
The Better Way to Breastfeed by Robin Elise Weiss
Due out July 1, 2010, this book is written by the About.com Pregnancy blog author Robin Elise Weiss. The editorial review on Amazon states: “The Better Way to Breastfeed gives mothers the practical instruction they need to ensure a healthy, positive experience for themselves and their child. Over 100 original step-by-step photographs set this book apart from the competition as well as concise and authoritative instruction from veteran doula, author, and About.com expert, Robin Weiss.”

A new edition and a Kindle edition of The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding will be released on July 13, 2010.
The Complete Book of Breastfeeding by Marvin S. Eiger, Sally Wendkos, and Laura Marks M.D.
The fourth edition of this book comes out on July 14, 2010. The product description says: “The Complete Book of Breastfeeding is a recognized classic in its field. Now it’s been completely revised and updated in a new fourth edition—non-doctrinaire, informative, and friendly, it is the most accessible and authoritative book, as much required reading for expecting and new mothers as a pregnancy guide and baby name book.”

Starting September 16, 2010, as a complement to The Nursing Mother’s Companion book mothers can buy this diary to “log the time and frequency of feedings, naps, and diaper changes with a simple chart. There’s also extra space for journaling, as well as an inspirational quote and a helpful tip about what to expect each day of the first two months of nursing. The small trim size is perfect for on-the-go moms, and fits easily into a diaper bag or pocket.”
Breastfeeding Made Simple: Seven Natural Laws for Nursing Mothers by Nancy Mohrbacher and Kathleen Kendall-Tackett
The second edition of this book comes out in December 2010. I know I can count on up-to-date research and advice from these authors and experts in the field.
