Milky Moments is a beautiful rhyming picture book for children and their families. Written by Ellie Stoneley, the book tells stories of family life and depicts breastfeeding as a very normal part of it. With hand painted illustrations by Jessica D’Alton Goode, Milky Moments was published in May 2015 by Pinter and Martin.

The first print run sold out, and the book is now available worldwide on every major book site online and from many independent (and chain booksellers). Milky Moments received a warm welcome from parents, children and healthcare professionals and only 5 star reviews from around the world. Cards and limited edition signed and numbered prints are now for sale on this site, along with a numbered collectable knitted bear called Eric (he stars in the book), and collectable felted nursing dolls. You can also find you all you need to know about buying a copy of Milky Moments on this website.

Wonderful writing about baby wearing ... and if you're in London pop into The Wrap Show today...Worn: The Writing Contest has three winners! Thanks so much to Ellie, award winning author from Milky Moments, for doing the tough work of choosing the winners.

First place winner is Alex Cetera-Powroznik, congratulations! All three winners received a free ticket to The Wrap Show 2019 and a signed copy of Milky Moments from Ellie.

Here is Alex's winning piece.

Worn.
I carry you in my heart
And I carry you in my arms.
My heart tunes to the rhythm of your heart,
My arms fold into the shape of you.

But it is you who shape me,
Everyday, every minute,like a sculptor shapes its creation.
I become more, because I carry you.

I carry you in a piece of fabric
that stems from my heart. My heart is the loom, forever warped in love and strength. Threads of our joy and sadness run through it, and it's not a cloth anymore.

I carry you, my love, because carrying you shapes the world.

About

Milky Moments byย Ellie Stoneley andย illustrated by Jessica Dโ€™Alton Goode

โ€œA delightful picture book that normalizes breastfeeding for young children. I was entranced by the images; they brought me back to my own childhood which was surrounded by family, nursing women and a feeling of happiness and love.โ€Jacque Gerrard, Director for England, Royal College of Midwives

โ€œA welcome addition to many a bookshelf.โ€ La Leche League, GB

“the words capture everything I’ve ever wanted to tell my children about breastfeeding” – Claire, mother of two.

At home, in hospital or out and about, every beautifully illustrated scene tells a story about day-to-day family life and loving milky moments.

Heart-warming, enchanting and fun, with a small bear called Eric to find on every page, this is a book to treasure that children will love to explore time and again.

With careful attention paid to positioning, Milky Moments also gently educates and informs about breastfeeding, whatever your age.
