Oh I love this book! The illustrations and the story are lovely... probably one of my favorites books on breastfeeding!
I loved that it's written from the little girls point of view. And how it gives you real life situations that would be appropriate for a child to understand, "We take her with us to"; play at the park, to the grocery store, to my dance class, and even at the beach.
I really loved that Kate Carothers took time to appreciate the family in as a whole.
"Even though our baby best feeds a lot, Mommy still has lots of time for me." The picture is of the mom nursing the baby while putting a puzzle together with the little girl. It incorporates the family in all aspects. A few pictures involved the father, which I equally loved. I know my own husband is a huge part of the success of nursing when you have other children as well. But I really enjoyed the fact that women can also have great success nursing while tending to other children and the new baby. For instance, bringing the young girl to the park by herself, mom shopping with baby in tow (a sling) and child in cart... I believed this helps me remember that I am not confined to a chair! Life goes on, we simply find ways to adjust. Nursing in public can be a scary thing, but this book also shows that it's nothing to be ashamed of and it's completely possible anywhere.
Best Milk is a wonderful book, beautifully written and illustrated. I am beyond thrilled to have it in my collection now! Can not wait to read it to my kids again when I have a new baby!
