Strengthen the Mother-Baby Bond During and After Breastfeeding

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

The Very Secret Sex Lives of Medieval Women

By

What Was Sex Like for a Medieval Woman?

An inside look at sexual practices in medieval times. Were medieval women slaves to their husband's desires, jealously secured in a chastity belt in his absence? Was sex a duty or could it be a pleasure? Did a woman have a say about her own female sexuality, body, and who did or didn’t get up close and personal with it? No. And yes. It’s complicated.

Romance, courtship, and behind closed doors. The intimate lives of medieval women were as complex as for modern woman. They loved and lost, hoped and schemed, were lifted up and cast down. They were hopeful and lovelorn. Some had it forced upon them, others made aphrodisiacs and dressed for success. Some were chaste and some were lusty. Having sex was complicated. Not having sex, was even more so.

Inside The Very Secret Sex Lives of Medieval Women, a fascinating book about life during medieval times, you will discover tantalizing true stories about medieval women and a myriad of historical facts. Learn about:

  • The true experiences of women from all classes, including women who made history
  • The dos and don’ts in the bedroom
  • Sexy foods and how to have them
  • All you need to know for your wedding night, and well as insider medical advice
  • How to get pregnant (and how not to), and more

Find the Helpers

By

#1 Bestseller in School Safety ─ Overcoming Grief Through the Humanity of Others

Fred Guttenberg loved watching Mr. Rogers with his daughter and his son when they were little. Their favorite piece of wisdom was: In the midst of tragedy and catastrophe, find the helpers.

"Always look for the helpers. There will always be helpers. Because if you look for the helpers, you’ll know there’s hope." —Fred Rogers, interview with Television Academy, 1999

Life changed forever on Valentine's Day 2018. What was to be a family day celebrating love turned into a nightmare. Thirty-four people were shot at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. Jaime Guttenberg, a fourteen-year-old with a huge heart, was the second to last victim. That she and so many of her fellow students were struck down in cold blood galvanized many to action, including Jaime’s father Fred who has become an activist dedicated to passing common sense gun safety legislation.

Fred was already struggling with deep personal loss. Four months earlier his brother Michael died of 9/11 induced pancreatic cancer. He had been exposed to so much dust and chemicals at Ground Zero, the damage caught up with him. Michael battled heroically for nearly five years and then died at age fifty.

This book is not about gun safety or Parkland. Instead, Find the Helpers tells the story of Fred Guttenberg’s journey since Jaime’s death and how he has been able to get through the worst of times thanks to the kindness and compassion of others. Good things happen to good people at the hands of other good people─and the world is filled with them. They include everyone from amazing gun violence survivors Fred has met around the country to former VP Joe Biden, who spent time talking to him about finding mission and purpose in learning to grieve.

If you have read books such as Eyes to the WindHabenThe Beauty in Breaking, The Book of Rosy, or We Are Not Here to Be Bystanders, then you'll love Find the Helpers.
