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.

Very moved by this remarkable mamaThey tell you breastfeeding is hard. It’s a lot of work, it’s a hassle, there are other, easier options.

Then you have champions like Jillian Taylor, who not only fight to maintain their breastfeeding journey through adversity, but will also do so with a smile and a thumbs-up.

They tell you it’s hard. But I tell you it’s worth it.

It’s a labour of love.

Whether you breastfeed for one day, one week, one year or even beyond. Every breastfeed you give makes a difference.

‘I’m in hospital for my autoimmune disease. Priority number 1? Getting milk home to my milk monster!’
- Jillian Taylor, first shared at Breastfeeders in Australia

Beautiful photos #feedonHere is the first 4 photos from #FeedOn, a new social awareness campaign by RÅN studio and the Association of Breastfeeding Mothers, using photography and film to help normalise breastfeeding in public.

You can see all 40 photos here:
Or follow this page as we will be posting more every couple of dates leading up to the release of the full video in mid July.

Our earlier project #feedme featured a series of women freely breastfeeding in public places across landmark locations in London. One year on, we have taken 40 further photographs across the U.K. We have added families from Glasgow, Cardiff, Bristol, Barrow-in-Furness, Manchester and Cambridge. These images are free for download and use in the circumstances described below.

Thank you to all the families that took part in this project

The images from our #feedon campaign are free to use, provided the image is not cropped to remove logos. Additionally, the images should not be used for commercial purposes nor by an organisation that does not abide by the international code of marketing of breastmilk substitutes.

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.
