Many mamas consider breastfeeding a normal and natural event but to an older sibling the process of his mama breastfeeding a new baby can be frustrating. The older child gets less time with his mama, the new baby gets to hang (literally) with mama all the time, and it can be confusing because people the child knows drink from cups, so why can't the new baby? There's a new book on the market that can help - Mommy Breastfeeds My Baby Brother.

Mommy Breastfeeds My Baby Brother gives an inside and easy to understand view about how one family adjusts to life with an "ever-hungry" infant and an inquisitive two-year-old sibling. The book was based on the personal experiences of author Mark Repkin and his wife Stacy. During the 24 page book, older sister Jenna goes through all the normal emotional ranges of a normal two year old, such as jealousy of her new brother, curiosity, and being proud of being the big helper.

Dr. Susan Sirota, private practitioner and pediatric instructor at Northwestern University Medical School, says, "This delightful book is a great addition to a child's library. 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."
