The Lending Library is a collection of books on breastfeeding, baby led weaning, and parenting that are available for you to borrow for a period of 30 days. There is no charge to borrow a book from the collection. We ask that you complete this form if you would like to borrow a book. This form allows us to track who has our books at any given moment. It also gives us the information that we need to contact you if the book is not returned by its due date.
Please consider these books to be like library books. Do not write in them, highlight in them, or damage them in any way. You may be held liable for damages if the books are returned un-lendable.
Not sure where to start or what book to get? For basic breastfeeding information, I highly recommend The Nursing Mother's Companion or The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding. If you are or have struggled with low supply, I highly recommend Making More Milk.
