The Breastfeeding Atlas is one of my favorite textbooks for everyday use and preparing me for the Board exam. It also improved the knowledge of my students in the South African Certified Lactation course. It is a fundamental tool for everyone working with lactating mothers.

The Breastfeeding Atlas is worth far more than its price because of the outstanding quality and quantity of photos that are central to understanding, preventing, and resolving breastfeeding problems.
The Breastfeeding Atlas was one of the very first reasonably-priced, evidence-based, patient/client-centered books. It is chock full of photos, available to those who are studying the IBLCE exam, or working with parents home with their babies. Many times I pulled it out at a home visit, to show pictures and information to help worried parents understand that their problem was not unique, and had a course of care we could try. The current edition does not leave my home visit bag. Using it for exam prep was invaluable to ease my IBCLC recertification.
