I collect old editions of THE WOMANLY BOOK OF BREASTFEEDING. Scattered around my home, along with copies of NEW BEGINNINGS and pro-breastfeeding children's books, are older versions of La Leche League's breastfeeding manual. My two-year-old daughter loves the books. As we sat in the living room the other night, she found my newest edition of THE WOMANLY BOOK OF BREASTFEEDING. She looked at it with great excitement written all over her face. I asked her what she was reading and she looked at me with a huge grin and exclaimed "It's a book on how mommies are made!" My mother-in-law was an LLL Leader and so am I. With my daughter's words, I suddenly imagined her future as a third-generation LLL Leader, who is already learning to live La Leche League's concepts.
