Information

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.

    Milky Moments

    Posted by Deirdre Sheridan on 2nd Jul 2015

    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

    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.

    Felt like an autobiography

    Posted by Hannah Fleck on 3rd Jun 2015

    Our nearly 3 year old loves the book - it reflects the everyday normality of his life. Beautiful illustrations and gently rhyming text with the additional pleasure of being introduced to the families at the end. (Since he always asks &amp;quot;who that&amp;quot; after meeting people in shops it was nice to ask him to find the characters in the book). Highly recommend.
