Mama, Who Drinks Milk Like Me?
â If you breastfeed your baby, you are not alone. You are making a difference for your child.--------This book celebrates the idea that, as mothers, we are a part of a special community called mammals. As a member of this group, we have the ability to give our children an amazing gift through breastfeeding.--------- â No matter where you are on your breastfeeding journey, this book is meant for you. You and your child can read together about others who breastfeed, just like you. This book can even be used to gently introduce nursing children to the idea of weaning, because it emphasizes that this is a choice between the mother and child, not our societal timetable. Written by a mother who accidentally became an "extended" or "full-term" breastfeeding mama for her son, "Mama, Who Drinks Milk Like Me?" is an encouraging and affirming book from her breastfeeding family to yours! -------- Melissa Panter has also written and illustrated other books, including "Mama Holds Me Close," a babywearing themed book that tells the different places and occasions a mother carries her child, using illustrations of animals that also carry their children.--- ------- The author encourages others to read about what the American Academy of Pediatrics, the World Health Organization, UNICEF, and the U.S. Surgeon General have to say about human milk.
