Giveaway: Signed copy of “Mommy Breastfeeds My Baby Brother”

If you have a toddler or preschooler and are pregnant or trying to be, this book is an absolute-must!

In Mommy Breastfeeds My Baby Brother by Mark Repkin, brand-new big sister Jenna has a lot of questions about her new baby brother, like “Why can’t he use a sippy cup?” and frustration over how much time Mommy has to spend nursing. Jenna learns about why breastfeeding is so important, and how to deal with being a big sister for the first time.

Stacy Repkin has generously offered to let us give away a copy of the book, signed by her husband, author Mark Repkin.

What makes this book so charming is that it’s written about Mark Repkin’s own family. When he and wife Stacy brought home their new son Spencer to their then-two-year-old daughter Jenna, they wished they’d had a kid-friendly book to help her understand her feelings and help them explain things to her easily. So when they couldn’t find one, they took their own experience and wrote a book about it, so that other families can learn from them.

The illustrations are simple but anatomically-accurate and the language is geared towards the small crowd (“breasts” and “booby” is the author’s family’s choice of words, but you can read it with whatever terms you prefer). The book has gotten a lot of nods and thumbs up:

“We’ve come a long way with appreciating the importance of breastfeeding and parents want to know how to introduce these concepts to the older sibling! MOMMY BREASTFEEDS MY BABY BROTHER provides ideas that worked for one family as they respond to the questions of their older daughter while caring for their newborn breastfed son.

    I would like the book, because I nurse my 1 year old son Lukas and have two older daughters and a book would be a great way to instill even MORE into their heads WHY we nurse our babies!!

    I “like” “Mommy breastfeeds my little brother” on fb. We will be introducing a new baby into out family of 3 and our 3 year old daughter still fondly remembers nursing herself. We anticipate her not understand why the baby can have “nini snacks” and she can’t.

    Would love to have the book to help introduce my two year old nursling to the idea he may have to share me and my milk within a year…

    I am currently breastfeeding my first child, who is 10 months old, and I’d like to have this book on hand if I am blessed with more children in the future!


  5. I would love this book as my 4 children do not have one book about breastfeeding and I think it is such a special and short time we have with them. The more common it looks, the better our world will be!

      I “shared” the link on my FB page.

      I have 3 small children ranging in age from 5 months to 3 years old. This would be a GREAT book to read to my 18 month and 3 year old about their baby brother, Jude!
