Near Mama's Heart giveaway

Near Mama's Heart, by Colleen Newman, is a wonderful children's book, that explains how truly wonderful it is to be breastfed! The illustrations are from real moms nursing their babies and each page shows the beauty of each little face. This book is such a simple read, that it makes reading it to children so enjoyable. Even better, it shows children of all ages (and positions) nursing from their mummie. 

I have watched this book, with my girls, many many many times. When my 2 year old, Joslyn, sees the little babies, she says "Sissy eating you, Mommy?"  It truly is a wonderful book for children of all ages.... and well for mummies too!

So you might be asking....."How to I get a copy?"  Well, that is very simple.......Near mama's Heart is available to watch online here and you can purchase a paper back copy of this book here.

  6. For awhile my 15 month old wouldn't sit still long enough for me to read to him, but he's recently started loving story time! We read every night before going to bed! :)

  9. Ok...I'm not allowed to win because I'm the site lactation educator but I just wanted to state that...it starts early for men. My little man loves me to read to him while he sits on the potty. And occasionally, he'll bust the door down while I'm in there so he can read to me. No privacy for a mom, but it's sweet:)
