"Breast is best." You've heard it from your doctor, your best friend, your pushy colleague. No arguments from you -- you're intent on nursing and you're ready to grow your baby the best way possible.

And then you start. Wait -- where was the memo on the searing pain? Or the strange desire to moo like a prize Jersey whenever you're hooked up to the pump? And was anyone going to mention the level of public nudity involved in getting your kid some breakfast?

In this perfect antidote to "lactivist" propaganda, award-winning writer Andy Steiner weaves together hysterical anecdotes and tips from the trenches to offer comfort and realistic advice to new nursing moms. Spilled Milk will help you understand that not all babies are going to "get it" right away, that breastfeeding can hurt even if you're doing it correctly, and that baring your breasts will actually become shamefully easy with time. Never fear, Steiner says. Stick with it and you'll get to what she calls "the love-in-the-letdown, the baby bonding, and the joy" of what can only be called "the world's first fast food."
