Two children's books about breastfeeding {giveaway inside}

As you know we love books and I feel very passionate about breastfeeding. So when Pinter and Martin asked me if I would be interested in these books about breastfeeding, I was delighted.

You, me and the breast  written by Monica Calaf and illustrated Mikel Fuentes has just been published in October. It tells the story of the bond between a mother and her new baby.The illustrations are bold,colourful and gorgeous.

The Mystery of the Breast written by Victoria de Abitiz and illustrated by Afra is a beautiful book to prepare older siblings for the arrival of a new baby. It is told by the little girl who has a new baby brother.
I love that both cosleeping and babywearing are mentioned in the book.

As a breastfeeding mother, I really enjoyed reading these books with my nurslings.

You can buy both books from bookstores, RRP £6.99

  1. Hello, well I never win anything, but I enjoy book sites so I had a look anyway lol. We are hoping to be blessed with another baby, and if we are lucky, Ina Mae's Guide To Breastfeeding will be top of my list (from the site), I hear its is an amazing book.

  2. Ina May Gaskin's "Birth Matters" looks like a compelling read.

  3. I've linked from my Facebook page:

  4. I've followed both you and them.

  5. And I've subscribed via networked blogs. Phew! Done! My email is x

  6. I'd like to read Birth without violence.

  7. Ooh, Complementary Feeding by Gabrielle Palmer looks interesting. There was a lot of good stuff in The Politics of Breastfeeding, so I bet this one would be good too!

  8. I quite fancy the father's Home birth handbook as well as the books you are promoting. They should stock "Hello Baby" A great kids book covering home births. It would fit right in with their range.
