About this deal

Group Leaders communicate with staff moderators and escalate potential violations for review, but they don’t moderate discussions. The author includes very detailed information in the back of the book with suggestions on how to go about the process.

The story is simplistic enough for toddlers to understand but captures enough of the complexity of the issue of weaning and makes it into such a lovely special and memorable ritual.Not only does the author give tips, tricks, and resources to the parent in the back of the book, but the story itself is beautifully written in rhyme to keep the little ones attention and the author helps give alternatives if "booby" isn't your go-to word - so it will work for everyone! As Reid points out, you can tweak the details to suit your family – for example, changing ‘booby milk’ to whatever term you use or carrying out the ritual after a special ‘Milkday’ party if your child’s birthday isn’t the right time.

We did our own booby moon ritual tonight, complete with cake and a balloon release, and she helped me put away the shirts I've used to nurse her to sleep.I am still in a bit of disbelief about how well it worked, while being respectful of him and making it a celebration at the same time. This has changed my life for the better without upsetting her, I could not recommend this any more for any mother looking to wean an older child.

This is a used book - there is no escaping the fact it has been read by someone else and it will show signs of wear and previous use. We've been down to only night nursing for a long time, which is likely why he wakes several times a night. When the time came for Kiwi Yvette Reid to stop breastfeeding her toddler son, she knew storytelling would help make the transition easier for him. Book also includes a gentle-parenting user guide that how to wean using Booby Moon, night weaning prior, breaking the fed-to-sleep habit and various options for a meaningful goodbye ritual.The back pages feature a weaning guide for Mothers who wish to end their breastfeeding journey as gently and as happily as possible. The back section of Booby Moon contains kind, insightful guidance for using the book to facilitate weaning. Read more about the condition New: A new, unread, unused book in perfect condition with no missing or damaged pages.

Suitable age 18months - 4 Book features an illustration of a mother cuddling her toddler to sleep instead of nursing them at night (bed-sharing). With over 6 million of the world’s best eBooks to choose from, Kobo offers you a whole world of reading. The concept was created in 2020 by a breastfeeding mother who was ready to wean but could not find a children's book on the market that offered her toddler an upside to their impending loss. I followed the advice towards the back too and I can hardly believe I'm saying this but by the 3 week mark, we were weaned. We respect everyone’s right to express their thoughts and opinions as long as they remain respectful of other community members, and meet What to Expect’s Terms of Use.A chance to celebrate a milestone reached, honour the journey thus far and acknowledge this special time for both mother and child. Sure, they gave toddlers a heads-up that the milk would soon be gone, but they didn’t imbue the process with the joy, ritual or excitement that she wanted. Highly recommend this book to anyone who may be reaching the end of their breastfeeding journey, and feeling nervous like I was! He still asked for it occasionally but whenever he did we reminded him of how we had let it go and there were no complaints, no pleading, no tears. The night of my son's last breastfeed we did a special cake and a celebration and reminded him that we were saying goodbye to booby.
