    I had such high hopes for this book but ended up being incredibly dissapointed Way too many essays by women trying to justify why they didn t breastfeed In one essay the author actually states that there are benefits to formula over breastmilk and I almost closed the book and put it down right then and there I m glad I kept read...

    I will re read this AFTER I ve been a breastfeeding mom and perhaps my rating will change As a pre breastfeeding mom, I found some of it overwhelmingly negative I appreciated the honesty, but in some of the essays the authors seemed to hammer on the negative aspects with a nuclear force, as if to counteract the unrealistically positive words that many of the breastfeeding nazis use In our culture, i...

    The most salient thing about this collection of essays is that it made me react The essays were all well written and thought provoking, but at the same time, this just wasn t what I was expecting to read in a collection with this title As someone who has nursed for 38 months 31 months with my first son and 7 so far with my second , I acknowledge that nursing is hard to learn, and can be a pain the buttyet, for me and for most women I know who ve chosen to breastfeed the positives FAR The most salient thing about this collection of essays is that it made me react The essays were all well written and thought provoking, but at the same time, this just wasn t what I was expecting to read in a collection with this title As someone who has nursed for 38 months 31 months with my first son and 7 so far with my second , I acknowledge that nursing is hard to learn, and can be a pain the buttyet, for me and f...

    I am not sure exactly what the goal was of the editors of this book Unbuttoned talks a lot about the pains of breastfeeding, but was real light on the pleasures Essentially, almost every essay boiled down to this breastfeeding is OK, but don t do it for too long and if you don t want to, who cares, because i...

    I loved this book It is exactly what I needed to read right now So much of what is out there sugar coats how great it is going to be to breastfeed and it never addresses the idea that a lot of times it is hard to get the hang of it This is by no means a how to book about the topic but that is exactly why it is great.A lot of the reviewers on goodreads were upset because it didn t glorify breastfeedingbut in my opinion, there are a million books o...

    I should have known that the ratings on this book would run the whole gamut, given how charged this issue it I do agree that reading this book before attempting to breastfeed your own baby will give you quite a lot to worry about However, having read it after nursing one baby and currently nursing another, I heard myself in some of the essays and was appalled by others In that sense, the book achieves a nice neutrality it gives various women a chance to express their own experiences without I should have known that the ratings on this book would run the whole gamut, given how charged this issue it I do agree that reading this book before attempting to breastfeed your own baby will give you quite a lot to worry about However, having read it after nursing one baby and currently nursing another, I heard my...

    These essays are really underwhelming The longer I breastfeed my own baby, theannoyed I get that this book pretends to offer an honest portrayal of breastfeeding I love personal essays, but these are badly written, whiny, self important, boring, and worst of all quite negative about breastfeeding Pro breastfeeding advocates like the La Leche League are referred to as the breastfeeding gestapo and breastfeeding nazis, and the writers are disparaging about longer term breastfeedin These essays are really underwhelming The longer I breastfeed my own baby, theannoyed I get that this book pretends to offer an honest portrayal of breastfeeding I love personal essays, but these are badly written, whiny, self important, boring, and worst of all quite negative about breastfeeding Pro breastfeeding advocates like the La Leche League are referred to as the breastfeeding gestapo and bre...

    Another book left in the pumping room at work by some other mom Essays by 25 different moms about varying breastfeeding experiences those who nursed until the baby self weaned at 4 years old to those who just did not want to breastfeed ever to those who couldn t And everything in between Well written the essayists are all writers , but I would not recommend it to someone who had not breastfed before Rather I d suggest it to those who have already done the breastfeeding ...

    Mixed feelings on this one For a book about nursing, there are a lot of essays about why women didn t want to nurse, couldn t nurse, felt pressured and guilty about nursing or not nursing Even the essays where the authors stated how easy and enjoyable they found nursing would end abruptly with and then a random roadblock appeared and I quit nursing at 6 months Or 4 months Or 3 months Then again, I know the stats many mothers don t nurse at all, most quit around that 3 6 month mark My ex Mixed feelings on this one For a book about nursing, there are a lot of essays about why women didn t want to nurse, couldn t nurse, felt pressured and guilty about nursing or not nursing Even the essays where the authors stated how easy and enjoyable they found nursing would end abruptly with and then a random roadblock appeared and I quit nursing at 6 months Or 4 months Or 3 months Then again, I know the stats many mothers don t nurse at all, most quit around that 3 6 month mark My experience nursing for 12 months now and counting is not usual So really this is a collection of common nursing experiences, I suppose, and it s not the book s fault that my experience has been different This collection is also 10 years old now I...
