Press Reviews

  • Lucy Webber, Midwife and IBCLC Lactation Consultant

    What a beautifully written, much needed book! Such a wide variety of incredible information and differing experiences. Empowering, thoughtful and engaging. Evidence based and practical, a must read for Supporters, Health Professionals but also parents too.
  • Kathryn Stagg, IBCLC and Holistic Sleep Coach

    In a country like the UK where breastfeeding past 6 months is quite unusual, there is very little support out there for those that do find themselves continuing into toddlerhood and beyond. This is an incredibly comprehensive guide to breastfeeding past six months so health care professionals can improve their support and practice and so parents to feel normal. It encompasses all the scenarios and challenges a breastfeeding family may encounter. A fantastic resource.
