By Tonks
We have a little boy on the way so this book was perfect for reading to my inquisitive 3 year old son on the run up to the birth! My son is still breastfed and this story helped to explain just how much the new baby will be feeding (sharing his milk!), waking in the night, being carried and so on. The pictures are great and there is a picture of the whole family in bed together which is lovely. This book has led to many discussions with my son about the new baby and answered lots of questions too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful book!! 7 Jan 2012
A beautiful book that associates the arrival of a new baby with familial happiness and positivity. It looks at the special bond between mother and breastfeeding child using humans and other mammals. It talks of how a mother understands her baby through love. This is a beautiful way to describe to a small child how a mother learns her baby's feeding cues. It is aimed at younger children.

5.0 out of 5 stars A perfect book for the arrival of a new baby 22 April 2012
This book is beautifully written and illustrated and is perfect to read in preparation for the arrival of a new baby. It is a great book to share with an older sibling in anticipation of the birth of their new brother or sister but also a way to positively depict breastfeeding which is seriously lacking in many children's books.

This is a lovely picture book to share with a toddler or older sibling, either before baby arrives or to explain why mummy is spending so much time feeding baby. Simple text explaining what breastfeeding is about and clear engaging pictures, both of mum and baby feeding and older child behaving as older children do! Lovely to see a sling included too, and can only hope I get the food deliveries and general help described when baby arrives next year.
