About this deal

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. 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.

I'll admit, while I was excited to give reading the book a go, I had a healthy amount of skepticism about how much it would help.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. The night of my son's last breastfeed we did a special cake and a celebration and reminded him that we were saying goodbye to booby.

A chance to celebrate a milestone reached, honour the journey thus far and acknowledge this special time for both mother and child. 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.

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.

Thank you so much it was exactly what I was looking for and will be recommending it to all breastfeeding parents! 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. In the same way that the Tooth Fairy makes children happy about their teeth falling out, looking forward to seeing Booby Milk magic fly away to Booby Moon can give the same wondrous joy to a weaning toddler. I think this book could be really great for moms who want to end breastfeeding at a specific point in time. When I first read Booby Moon , I loved the tone and the idea but wondered if the mythological aspect would be right for me when it came time to wean my almost two-year-old.

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!
