"With abundant research to back her narrative, journalist
Allers, who has two children, shows how and why American women have
been made to feel ashamed of breast-feeding...Allers makes the
message loud and clear: since breast-feeding provides the most
benefits for mother and child, for those who are capable of doing
so, it should be the feeding method of choice. Easily digested
research and personal stories in support of breast-feeding and its
importance to mothers and their children." -Kirkus
"Formula companies make millions by convincing women they aren't capable of one of their most basic bodily functions, and have spent millions of marketing dollars aimed at women, doctors, hospitals, scientists and policymakers to hammer this point home for the past century. Allers is...transform[ing] the narrative surrounding breast-feeding into an empowering message." - The Washington Post
