Milky Moments has won an award.
A huge massive enormous (and very prestigious … and voted for by the public) award.
Milky Moments won the People’s Book Prize award for the Children’s Book of the Year 2015/16 at a very glitzy ceremony in London on 12th July.
I was totally overwhelmed … and burbled alot in my speech, but ultimately it’s all about normalising breastfeeding and the award is as much for my book and Jess’s lovely illustrations as it is for all the incredible breastfeeding mothers and families that have supported the book, for the lactation consultations and volunteers who support them and the midwives who started us all off … THANK YOU so much for all the support … WOOOO HOOOOOOO
a huge deal for a little book people wouldn’t review as breastfeeding was seen as too niche!
