"This CD-ROM is fantastic - a remarkable contemporary educational resource for anyone working with lactacting/breastfeeding women.... All in all I think this CD is an excellent learning resource which should be available on all neonatal and maternity units. In addition I consider it is also appropriate for the wider multidisciplinary team including health visitors, breastfeeding support staff, dieticians and GPs."
