Strengthen the Mother-Baby Bond During and After Breastfeeding
“I needed this book in my life when I was weaning my babies. All of the mamas need this book.”—April Morones, Lactation Consultant
Perfect gift. An interactive guide, tool and special picture book keepsake that prepares your child and you for the end of nursing.
Weaning is a special and emotional transition―get the help you need. If you’re a breastfeeding mom, you know on an emotional level that the bond between mother and child is strengthened when breastfeeding. Due to both breast milk itself and the tangible contact of nursing, the connection is also strengthened on a scientific and physical level. This, among other advantages of breastfeeding, is part of what makes weaning so difficult, both for children and mothers. Knowing when to stop breastfeeding, and how to do it in a way that honors and preserves your relationship with your child, can make the process easier and smoother. In Mama’s Milk and Me, author and mother Alisha Gaddis provides a loving and interactive guide for taking this inevitable step.
Celebrate this new chapter in your life. While weaning comes with its challenges, it also opens the door to experience new and exciting milestones with your child. Just as your child will continue to grow and develop, so too will your relationship. Part of what makes this book a wonderful gift for new moms and mamas with experience is that it doubles as a keepsake. With a fill-in-the-blank format, mothers are provided a space to reflect and work through the emotional process of weaning. In addition, the book includes prompts for ideas on how to celebrate this step with your child. Learn more about:
- The importance of breastfeeding and the bond between you and your child
- How to sustain the connection even after breastfeeding stops
- The exciting changes and developments that await you after weaning
