There are plenty of books on breastfeeding. But books about breastfeeding that are humorous, give perspective and show respect for the bottle are scarce. That’s why Sofie van den Enk wrote a diary with Eva de Munnik: a handbook on breastfeeding that addresses anything you as a (future) mother should know about feeding your baby. It includes stories of unknown and famous Dutch parents—which can be substituted with parents from any given country—a chapter for your partner and one on the bottle, which you may browse at any time without feeling guilty. Because no matter how beautiful breastfeeding is, bottle feeding is also perfectly fine. Just do whatever you feel most comfortable with—that’s the message of The Milk Factory.
