I think this book could be really great for moms who want to end breastfeeding at a specific point in time.

The author includes very detailed information in the back of the book with suggestions on how to go about the process. I am still in a bit of disbelief about how well it worked, while being respectful of him and making it a celebration at the same time. Still, I found this book to be a sweet idea for a weaning ritual in a culture that lacks any such thing to provide closure for those who have chosen to breastfeed into the toddler years.It is beautifully written and illustrated and really touches on the intense bond that breastfeeding fosters and how hard that can be to give up, for both mum and child. The ritual aspect of the Booby Moon process helps mother and toddler find an easeful acceptance for Booby Milk going away – with the child seeing the magic leave with their own eyes. The story is simplistic enough for toddlers to understand but captures enough of the complexity of the issue of weaning and makes it into such a lovely special and memorable ritual. She was dismayed to find, though, that none of the popular weaning storybooks struck the right tone.

As in Reid’s real life, the mum and toddler in the book mark the occasion, on the night of the toddler’s birthday, by having one last feed before releasing a glow-in-the-dark helium balloon, thanking the milk and waving goodbye as it floats away.

I had to wean her so we can do another round of IVF, and I was dreading the process cuz my girl is a boob monster! Thank you so much it was exactly what I was looking for and will be recommending it to all breastfeeding parents! Even though we’re not officially weaning yet, he’s fascinated by the idea that the toddler in Booby Moon doesn’t need milk anymore, and I can see it’s a first step towards laying the foundations. We cuddled up and had some water and sang songs and I'm not gonna lie it took forever, but nursing was taking forever too so no surprise there. I nursed my daughter for over 2 years and to say that she was obsessed with the boob is an understatement.This is a beautifully illustrated book about weaning which helps your little ones prepare to move off of breast milk and onto food. Group Black's collective includes Essence Opens a new window, The Shade Room Opens a new window and Naturally Curly Opens a new window. Following the storybook is an extensive guidebook with plenty of advice, tips and tricks for both the Booby Moon method and the weaning process in general. We didn’t do the balloon ceremony thing, but I would remind her that mama’s booby milk went to the moon whenever she would ask to nurse. Highly recommend this book to anyone who may be reaching the end of their breastfeeding journey, and feeling nervous like I was!

Suitable age 18months - 4 Book features an illustration of a mother cuddling her toddler to sleep instead of nursing them at night (bed-sharing). Sure, they gave toddlers a heads-up that the milk would soon be gone, but they didn’t imbue the process with the joy, ritual or excitement that she wanted.

Not only does the author give tips, tricks, and resources to the parent in the back of the book, but the story itself is beautifully written in rhyme to keep the little ones attention and the author helps give alternatives if "booby" isn't your go-to word - so it will work for everyone!
