The Subtle Art of Fucking Breastfeeding

What No One Tells You and How to Reach Milk Nirvana

About the Book

Plenty of blogs and books preach about the benefits of breastfeeding, how to breastfeed, and common challenges, but they are dull or judgmental as hell – and stressed out sleep deprived mommies don’t have time to deal with that.

The Subtle Art of F*cking Breastfeeding lives in the real world. In this refreshingly entertaining how-to guide, we’re going to arm you with all the info and techniques you need to breastfeed and kick a bunch of serious ass.

This book is an invitation to all mommies who want to elevate their breastfeeding game. No more sore nipples. No more doubts about whether you have enough milk for your baby. No more late-night cry fests. Sh*t is about to get real.

Topics include:

increase lactation

womanly art of breastfeeding

breastfeeding questions

increase milk supply

breastfeeding books

how to breastfeed

baby breastfeeding

breast milk

mom breastfeeding

breastfeeding guide

best breastfeeding books
