Description

A beautiful book for children and their families, Milky Moments celebrates the joy of childhood and mothering, and normalises breastfeeding as a part of day-to-day life.

Delightfully illustrated scenes are complemented by lyrical rhyming text that gently draws the reader into the lives of the families depicted. The hand-painted illustrations are set in a variety of locations including a playgroup, a shopping trip, parks, hospital and at home. The children’s ages range from newborn to 5 years old, baby and child breastfeeding positioning is accurate and realistic, and the love and attention to detail in the book were inspired by the guiding principles of the La Leche League and the author’s own personal experience.

Inspirational, intimate and fun, Milky Moments is not only a book to treasure, but also a book that will educate and inform on the importance and normality of breastfeeding – however old you are.

    Lovely bedtime reading

    Posted by Nicoletta on 27th Apr 2017

    I've really enjoyed sharing this book with my breastfed toddler. The illustrations are beautiful and we talk about the scenarios. It's nice as a Mum to also share how other kids feed, to help my toddler verbalise the experience.

    Wonderful book

    What a lovely book, the illustrations are very nice and my daughter loves it. I wish however that there was a board book version of it, since my daughter is eating the page corners. She also enjoys turning the pages which is a bit tricky with such thin pieces of paper. Apart from that it's a really great buy!

    Heartwarming book about nursing babies and children within family life. Baby loves it. Have bought for some of my mamma friends too. Wish it came as a board book though as my baby is slowly destroying the paper pages 😭

    A must have book for all breastfeeding mums

    Posted by Shabnam Kavakeb on 19th Feb 2016

    When I bought the book I was so excited and couldn't wait to read it. It arrived quicker than what I thought and I started reading it straight away . It's a lovely book and I'm glad I paid extra to get the hardback version of it. I love the words and illustrations both. I enjoyed reading each page and looking at the lovely pictures which are very natural and reminded me of myself and my breastfeeding journeys with my 3 children . I then asked my nearly 8 year old daughter who was breastfed for 4 and a half years to read it. I should say, she is a great fan of breastfeeding. She loved the book and even told me which page was her favourite. After that, I read the book to my 2 and a half year old daughter who is still having breast milk. It made her giggle , looking at the pictures and having breast milk in different positions by copying the children in the pictures . <br />I strongly recommend you to buy this book for yourself if you like breastfeeding or to by it for a mum who enjoys breastfeeding her child .

    A book to treasure

    A beautiful story book that captures the true nature of breastfeeding - precious and special but also completely natural and totally normal. My daughter loves the detailed illustrations and enjoys finding Eric the bear on every page. I enjoy reading a book that captures so perfectly our every day life.

    Finally! A book for toddlers featuring breastfeeding

    Posted by Claire Sale on 29th Jul 2015

    Milky Moments is a lovely, melodic book which shows nursing children in everyday situations. My two year old likes to read the words with me and search for Eric the Bear on every page. <br /><br />This is a great read for an older child with a younger sibling who nurses, an older child who nurses, and for siblings who are both nursing. <br /><br />I love how it normalizes breastfeeding! - I bought copies for me and 4 of my momma friends :-)

    A must buy

    Posted by Mandie on 3rd Jul 2015

    This book is so beautiful. <br />The story is lovely and the pictures really compliment it. <br />I wish there were more children's books available like this that normalize the most normal thing in the world. <br />I am so happy my little boy has this book to grow up reading.

    Beautiful written story of a conversation of the heart between mother and child. The illustrations are really touching and complement the story so well. I would love to see a board book version for my local pre-school.

    Wonderful story, touched my heart and my eyes. The story is beautiful and written so well that it is a pleasure to read aloud while the illustrations just make you want to smile. I would love to see a board book as i feel children particularly younger ones would love to get their hands on it and my signed copy is too precious by half!

    Awesome

    Posted by Simon Cohen on 9th Jun 2015

    ItÕs hard to think of a more enjoyable and important book for my children. ItÕs fun, beautifully written and takes the reader on a 24 hour journey that any parent will empathise with immediately. The rhyming makes it easy to remember, and keeps the imagination and attention of the little one. Perhaps most importantly, Milky Moments normalizes the magical moments of breastfeeding, which are too often taboo in our society. As a dad, I couldnÕt think of a more natural and nourishing act, and I am delighted that more mums and dads will feel empowered to talk about their own milky moments as a result of this book. And our children will grow up strong on the inside as well as out. Milky Moments should have its own spot on every small personÕs bookcase.
