Booby Moon: A weaning book for toddlers.
About this deal
However, my son noticed the book on my desk and asked me to read it to him, and he’s since requested it many more times. It helped us through something I was very apprehensive about, and made the experience something positive for my son. 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 nursed my daughter for over 2 years and to say that she was obsessed with the boob is an understatement.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. I implemented a number of the suggestions in the back of the book to make the process more magical for him and easier for us. As Reid points out, you can tweak the details to suit your family – for example, changing ‘booby milk’ to whatever term you use or carrying out the ritual after a special ‘Milkday’ party if your child’s birthday isn’t the right time. Note: Book features an illustration of a mother cuddling her toddler to sleep instead of nursing them at night (bed-sharing). He still asked for it occasionally but whenever he did we reminded him of how we had let it go and there were no complaints, no pleading, no tears.
We read it for about 2 months and it really helped me wean my daughter when I truly thought there was no end.
