I have the pleasure of giving away three codes for free iPad downloads of one of those books: The Wonders of Mother's Milk, by Mishawn Purnell.
The Wonders of Mother's Milk is a rhyming children's book which explains, in easy to understand terms, how breastfeeding and breastmilk work to protect babies. It features beautiful, vibrant illustrations, picturing mothers of many cultures feeding their babies in different ways and in different settings. The author discusses nursing in public, breastfeeding and working, and even how protecting our environment protects breastfeeding. It mentions the importance of breastfeeding past infancy, and ends with a suggestion to "offer a smile" to nursing mothers everywhere. This book is now available as an e-book for Kindle on Amazon and on iTunes for the iPad.
