    Default Book Question- Womanly Art of BFing

    Someone passed the older version onto me, is there a huge difference between this and the new one?

    The 8th edition (2010) was an entire rewrite with a great deal of the most recent info and "thinking" about bfeeding plus a new format. So it is very different and more up to date than previous editions.

    However, IMO, this new edition, while truly excellent, left out some of the great 'mothering wisdom' of earlier editions. I still look back to my 7th edition for that.

    Gotcha. I'm going to a kids' consignment sale this weekend, so I may see if there are any copies of the new version there, and keep the older one as well.
