Re: books for toddlers about nursing

I dont have an y suggestions other than the above listed.. I wish I could have found more info on it for my daugther... she was not BF I wish I had.. but didnt... I was young and when we took her to a big sister/brother class at the hospital they barely even mentioned bottle feeding and talked alot be BF but on the way home my daughter ( 4 and half at the time ) asked whythe mommy's in the movie were feeding their babies like dogs feed their puppies lol.. and it struck me.. ( no one in our family has BF ) that she had NO IDEA about BF.. . so we got online and got pictures. and we talked about it.. but I wish I would have thought about kid books about it..

oh sweetie, don't feel bad. sounds like you are doing the right thing for her now. she will have memory of you feeding her baby sister or brother and when it comes time for her to make feeding choices for her own babies, she will have that experience to draw from. bfing is becoming the norm for her. and now you can get books for you LO!

another one is michelle the nursing toddler, published by LLL. i don't have this one, but im thinking about it.

Mothering Mag had a list like this of children's books that featured images of nursing babies/toddlers. It must have been 2-3 issues ago in the back section. Maybe if you go on their web site.

Mama Mama by Jean Marzollo isn't a "nursing book" but we ADORE it and one page has a jungle cat nursing her cub and says "mama mama soft as silk, keep me warm and give me milk" (it also uses a koala and shows "babywearing")

There is one called "I am Made of My Mamma's Milk" It is a board book. My son and I get it out of the library all the time. I can check to see the author and publisher next time we go to the library.
