Children's books about breastfeeding

 Welcome back to the last week of Keep Britain Breastfeeding 2012! The theme is breastfeeding beyond the first month this week.
You may already know that I let my children self wean when they are ready. I have written about my tips on tandem nursing and nursing through pregnancy before which you might find useful. 
It is also great joy to nurse and chat about breastfeeding with an older child.
We  enjoy reading books about breastfeeding and for today I thought I would do a round up of these books.

 A lovely book about night weaning:Nursies when the sun shines

Before You were Born has beautiful illustrations

You,me and the breast is just lovely!My daughter's favorite!

Mystery of the Breast is also great for preparing a sibling to the arrival of a new baby.

I would love to hear if you know of any other children's books about breastfeeding. Please let me know in the comments.
PS:Don't forget,the Monkey Mama Nursing Necklaces is still going on and open worldwide. Also, please come back tomorrow for another giveaway exclusive to breastfeeding mums :)

  13. Children's book Mommy Breastfeeds My Baby Brother by Mark Repkin is an excellent book for the toddler expecting a new breastfeeding sibling. The pictures are bright and vibrant and the story is entertaining and informative. It is a great tool to prepare your toddler for a new breastfeeding sibling. It is also available in a bilingual edition (English/Spanish on each page). The book can be bought on Amazon,LaLeche League International Books Store and on Facebook.
