Solicting information

Anyone have any recommendations for books on breastfeeding? At this point, I want to exclusively breastfeed for as long as I can. I know I will need a pump for when I return to work...but just wanted to get as much information as I can now.

I did get some information from La Lech.e League.

Hmm, good question. I don't know and I plan to steal your responses. :)

I was a committed breastfeeder but had major supply problems (I persisted, but never succeeded in b/fing exclusively). Hopefully your experience will be different, but I think even if it's easier you'd still enjoy Spilled Milk: Breastfeeding Adventures and Advice from Less-Than Perfect Moms by Andy Steiner. I found it informative, helpful, and supportive without being overwhelming or taking itself too seriously.

You go girl! I don't have any suggestions, but just wanted to offer encouragement! If we get to the point of bringing baby home this is my goal too!!!
