I just discovered this wonderful Kickstarter Campaign for ‘Milk and Cookies’ by Emma Rosen a sweet picture book that explains breastfeeding in an accessible way for small children. What a unique idea.This beautiful book informs while leaving space for families to have their own conversations. It’s not just for families who are already comfortable talking about breastfeeding, it’s for any little one with questions.
