by Mizin Park Kawasaki

As women continue to bear children, all parents should ask the following question: how can a woman fulfill her unique responsibility as mother to her child when prevailing parenting practices deny the importance of breastfeeding and maternal care?Dr. Kawasaki, a pediatrician and stay-at-home mother of two, offers compelling reasons for parents to think seriously about the unique role women play in their children's lives, particularly in early childhood. She argues that the priceless benefits of breastfeeding and hands-on maternal care help to ensure the optimal growth and development of children."This is exactly the book that needed to be written-now-when the folly of day care is beginning to be seen, even by those who most strongly advocated it. As more and more people are able to reject a lifestyle based on the values of consumerism: envy, selfishness and greed, this book will be a beacon back to values that matter."Elliott T. Barker, M.D., D. Psych., FRCP(C)President, Canadian Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children

Dr. Kawasaki is our daughter's pediatrician. When I found out she wrote this (my own discovery, she did not try to sell me her book) I ordered it immediately because she is my favorite doctor of all time. Warm, compassionate, gentle and very human (she treats my infant like a real person!), I was super interested in her advice via book form. I was not disappointed. There is wonderful information in here and it's presented with Dr. Kawasaki's very humbling, very honestly written personal stories, so it really resonated with me. And if you're on the fence about whether or not to breastfeed, this book will convince you to do so. I am pro-attachment-style parenting and loved everything suggested in here. So grateful for this helpful, reassuring book.
This is a passionate view of the most dignified and underrated of professions, Mothering. Dr. Kawasaki defends a mother's right and need to breastfeed and participate in the daily care of her children and has researched her subject thoroughly, providing a look at contemporary parenting with an informative and balanced approach.

Every new and expecting mother should read this book, as should the obstetricians, doulas and pediatricians that mothers often turn to for sound advice.
