About the Author

Kate Evans is an active environmental campaigner who has been marrying words and images for political effect for ten years. Her succinct comic reportage is characterised by an ironic, self-deprecating view of the impossibility of perfection in an imperfect world. Her previous books include 'Funny Weather', about climate change, and Copse, a cartoon history of the roads' protest movement.


'Amazing - I laughed out loud.' - DAVINA MCCALL 'There's really nothing like it. It's so honest. Vibrant, exciting funny - and based on up-to-date research.' - SHEILA KITZINGER 'Very well written and researched - and great drawings too.' - SUE GERHARDT, author of Why Love Matters: How affection shapes a baby's brain 'One of the wittiest books about breastfeeding I've had the pleasure of reading...extremely well-written and bursting with thoroughly researched breastfeeding information. Covering everything from the first feeds to co-sleeping, it explains all you need to know about breastfeeding in a very comforting and inspirational fashion. A fabulous read...If you're looking for a great gift to give an expectant mother or a new mother who is breastfeeding, then this is the one.' - BREASTFEEDING MUMS BLOG 'Delightful - genuinely hard to put down, because it was so very readable. Kate's book is also sound and accurate - she uses research-based evidence as well as personal experience and shows how many mothers cope with a variety of initial difficulties and overcome them. As a breastfeeding counsellor and trainer of peer supporters I love this book - it is truly mother-and-baby-centred.' - CATHY FRY, NCT BREASTFEEDING COUNSELLOR 'What a fantastic book! More like a chat over a coffee with a good friend than a text book, Evans' approach - although completely pro-breastfeeding - is totally non-threatening or 'preachy' and is packed full of really useful advice and tips. The NHS should provide every pregnant woman with a copy.' THE HOLISTIC PARENT 'Honest advice and easy-to-follow diagrams, including a hilarious chapter on "Mama Sutra" explaining advanced breastfeeding positions...A laugh-out-loud approach to encourage mums to persevere with breastfeeding.' - PRESS ASSOCIATION 'Refreshing in so many ways: beautiful to look at (the cartoons are wonderful); informative and - best of all - funny. I genuinely haven't been as excited about a breastfeeding book since Fresh Milk.' ASSOCIATION OF BREASTFEEDING MOTHERS 'A funny, handy guide to help new mothers enjoy their baby and a valuable addition to the existing literature. Cartoon drawings successfully convey the message that breastfeeding is lovely and easy, yet Kate Evans also includes the latest facts and research surrounding breastfeeding as well as a useful section on further resources and references. Full of practical tips, it will meet the needs of many new mums and be of use to breastfeeding counsellors, antenatal teachers, midwives and health professionals.' - NEW DIGEST, NCT MAGAZINE 'Reading this book really does feel like chatting to a friend.' - ASSOCIATION OF BREASTFEEDING MOTHERS MAGAZINE 'Kate's book is the closest companion to a 24-hour breastfeeding support worker than I can imagine. What's more, it will make you laugh, which is essential when new parenthood is overwhelming you.' Community midwife Ali Dale, RN
