About this deal

This has changed my life for the better without upsetting her, I could not recommend this any more for any mother looking to wean an older child. I followed the advice towards the back too and I can hardly believe I'm saying this but by the 3 week mark, we were weaned. We did our own booby moon ritual tonight, complete with cake and a balloon release, and she helped me put away the shirts I've used to nurse her to sleep. The story encourages toddlers to share their mother with the new baby and gives them an exciting ritual goodbye / celebration to look forward to once they wean. Booby Moon , inspired by both Indigenous storytelling and Western mythology like the Tooth Fairy, uses a simple rhyming format to prepare toddlers – and parents – for this monumental milestone.

This is a community to encourage, support, and educate parents nursing babies/children through their breastfeeding journey. With over 6 million of the world’s best eBooks to choose from, Kobo offers you a whole world of reading. Suitable age 18months - 4 Book features an illustration of a mother cuddling her toddler to sleep instead of nursing them at night (bed-sharing). 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. The views expressed in community are solely the opinions of participants, and do not reflect those of What to Expect.

While our feeds had dropped to one or two a day, refusing him was very difficult and dropping feeds was always a drawn out process. I thought some of the book might have had an effect on him, but I did not expect such an immediate and magical change. I really like the idea of my toddler being the one to have a physical representation of letting go of milk but I cannot release a balloon. I thought there would be tears, I thought I might have to make dad do bedtime, so many people told me to go away for a few days to wean. We've been down to only night nursing for a long time, which is likely why he wakes several times a night.

I bought a couple of weaning books for Lily, then decided that I wasn't quite ready to wean her yet. A Group Leader is a What to Expect community member who has been selected by our staff to help maintain a positive, supportive tone within a group.Thank you so much it was exactly what I was looking for and will be recommending it to all breastfeeding parents! Maybe we’ll have a party and release a magical balloon; maybe we’ll just talk about how he doesn’t need milk anymore, “Like the toddler in Booby Moon !
