I am looking into getting a book that tells you everything you need to know about br___tmilk (like storing it, freezing it, how long is it good for, etc.) Does anyone have any suggestions?

I'm not sure about a book, but you might want to check into a cla__s on the subject. I just attended a b___stfeeding cla__s last night at the hospital where I'll have my baby, and it was extremely helpful. Very casual and the instructor answered lots of questions.

Try going to amazon and search for "b___stfeeding book" hopefully it will bring up something!

my hospital provided me with one when i gave birth, so maybe check into that. atleast it would be free.

The website has a lot of info. I don't know about a specific book, but I took a cla__s at the hospital I will be delivering at that was really helpful to me...before the cla__s I was really nervous about b___stfeeding, but now that I took it I feel a lot more confident in being able to b___stfeed, and the instructor was great at answering any questions that came up. My dh and I even stayed 30 minutes after the cla__s to ask her more questions we had. There were only 4 couples in the cla__s, like Joanne said it was really casual, they had snacks for us, it was really nice. We got a folder with a bunch of info in it on b___stfeeding, including storage charts for milk and that sort of thing.

I received a book from my sister in law called "the womanly art of b___stfeeing" it is written by the La Leche League International. It may be to much information but it tells you everything you need to know including storage and freezing.I hope that helps.

To add to what Janelle wrote: There are local chapters of La Leche League all over. Contact yours. They should be a great help & comfort.

"The Breastfeeding Book" from the Dr. Sears series is pretty good. I did not choose it, but got it as a gift. I referred to it with questions while I was b___stfeeding.
