I am a nursing mother. I have a 6 week old baby, a 2 year old and my 4 year old daughter.
Although, I did nurse my 2 year old; apparently my oldest daughter forgot or maybe has just seen to many family and friends bottle feeding, climbed up onto the couch while I nursed my brand new baby and asked.
"What are you doing?"
"I have to feed the baby."
"HE EATS YOU?!!" She said puzzled and shocked.
I couldn't help but laugh and try to explain what exactly I was doing and why.
So, This book is perfect. It helps teach children the reason for breastfeeding and why we do it in a sweet way that was easy for my 2 children to understand.
It tells a story of a little girl who doesn't understand why a baby would eat from her mother. The book is beautiful and shows a "realness" from the hospital to being confined to a couch with a toddler being a restless child wanting attention. Why mommy needs to feed the baby and why the baby needs her in return.
I thought this book had such a sweet way of showing such a beautiful thing.
