    One thought on “Breastfeeding and Catholic Motherhood: God's Plan for You and Your Baby”

    1. This book is a good introduction to the importance and joy of breastfeeding your child Sheila Kippley is simple and straightforward in explaining the physical, emotional and spiritual benefits of taking on this important role in your child s life While she emphasizes the importance and normality of breastfeeding, especially what she terms ecological breastfeeding which includes not feeding your baby on a scheduled but based on the baby s needs and desires, and offering the baby the breast instea [...]

    2. This book is a good and inspiring summary of the physical and spiritual benefits of breastfeeding woven with Catholic theology and support I was hoping it would be a little bit moving, but it was effective and encouraging in its simplicity It was a very affirming book and came at the perfect time for me It was illuminating to see this way of mothering expressed through the teachings of the Church Beautiful.

    3. Good Information, Unsure of ApplicationI really liked parts of this book for the support of breastfeeding as the best nourishment for babies I also liked the information about NFP and La Leche League However, I m still not sold on attachment parenting or co sleeping and I think this book makes it seem like no mother should ever be without her baby for the first few years I just think this is unrealistic and somewhat unhealthy.

    4. I was so disappointed by this book I was really looking forward to it breastfeeding and Catholicism Two of my favorite things But I was very much turned off by how the author vilified working moms I also think that her view on mothers who do not breastfeed is very narrow and dismissive of the real problems they might be facing But most importantly, I was hoping for a serious, theology based discussion of breastfeeding, while this book mostly relies on anecdotae.

    5. This is a wonderful, inspiring book on the reasons for breastfeeding Kippley provides scriptural and pontifical reasons for nursing your baby exclusively for six months and extended breastfeeding for at least two years I ve always weaned my children by 18 months, but I ve been inspired to try nursing my fifth child until s he is two

    6. I LOVE this book It s a little friend of mine I highly recommend it to any Catholic mother, or anyone that doubts the power that God gave to mothers as such It s a remarkable relationship, this one of breastfeeding, and I am so grateful to have found this book to help me realize this simple truth in a profound way.

    7. In a culture where doctors do not understand the basic physiology of breastfeeding and natural child spacing, this book is a gift It is not a page turner, but the information is sound and encouraging.
