"The author does a wonderful job assisting siblings in an age-appropriate understanding of breastfeeding as well as guiding the adjustment to her new sibling role," said Dr. Susan Sirota, pediatric instructor at Northwestern University Medical School.
"Parents want to know how to introduce these concepts to older siblings, and 'Mommy Breastfeeds My Baby Brother' provides ideas that worked," said Marian Tompson, co-founder of La Leche League International.
Research shows that antibodies passed from a nursing mother to her baby can help lower the occurrence of many conditions, including ear infections, diarrhea, respiratory infections, and meningitis. "Financially speaking, breastfeeding mothers may be able to reduce some of the hidden costs of unplanned doctor visits which can quickly add up during the first year," says Repkin.
Repkin adds, "I'm excited that the bilingual version of 'Mommy Breastfeeds My Baby Brother' will reach both the English and Spanish-speaking mothers, and serve as a tool to teach their new baby's siblings the importance of breastfeeding. Mothers who breastfeed make both a natural healthy decision and a financially smart choice."Photos: http://mommybreastfeeds.squarespace.com/image-gallery MEDIA CONTACT: Rafaela Cortez, Director of MediaIstoria House Publishing firstname.lastname@example.org (847) 367-6884 This press release was issued through eReleases(R).
