Mums are Wonderful

Book review by Jane Palmer

At first glance I thought what a lovely book and wouldn't it make an ideal gift for a new mother. Natalie Green presents beautiful imagery of babies, mothers and fathers. The book is designed to be picked up and put down with one hand. It is short, easy to read and humorous in parts.

My major concern with this book is it's promotion of bottle feeding. There are three images in the book depicting a baby feeding and all are bottlefed. One of the images has the text overlayed saying "Never mind the breastfeeding zealots". As a midwife I cannot recommend this book because of it's promotion of bottlefeeding and the implications that has on the health of babies.
