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.

A lovely message this morning 🙂I was gifted this beautiful book when the writers little girl came to classes and wowed me with her pointy toes and love of dance. Have just read it to my little 9 month girl before her ‘milky’ and morning nap! It depicts breastfeeding in a normal way at home and out and about with sweet illustrations. Bravo Ellie and thank you 😊 Milky Moments ... See MoreSee Less

About

Milky Moments by Ellie Stoneley and illustrated by Jessica D’Alton Goode

“A 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.”Jacque Gerrard, Director for England, Royal College of Midwives

“A welcome addition to many a bookshelf.” 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.
