Abstract

If only I had known about the La Leche League some fifty years ago when I did not successfully breastfeed two babies and didn’t even try with a third. If only I had possessed such a book as Have Milk, Will Travel, maybe, just maybe, I would have been successful. If not, it wouldn’t have been for the lack of ideas, encouragement, consolation, and the gift of laughter. Have Milk, Will Travel is a small book of 32 accounts (prose, a poem, and a cartoon) of the pleasures, the challenges and, the surprises of breastfeeding, plus insightful preface and forewords by the editor, Rachel Epp Buller, and two lactation consultants, Corky Harvey and Wendy Haldeman.
