Not sure if this is the best place to post but any ideas welcome! We're expecting another baby in a months time and have been getting dd who almost 3 used to the idea with several 'I'm going to be a big sister" books. But none of them show breast feeding. I plan to but worried it may come as a surprise to her as we're not around anyone who does at the moment. Can anyone suggest any good books? Thanks!

Don't know about a specific book, but i do know that the Katie Morag books show her mum breastfeeding the new baby. They don't make a big deal out of it, it's just in the pictures but you can pick it out and talk to her about it maybe. Katie Morag and the Tiresome Ted is a good one - it's about Katie Morag adapting to the new baby and does show her mother feeding.

Hello Baby by Lizzie Rockwell was very nice and definitely had a breastfed baby in it.
Not breastfeeding related, but a nice subtle approach to the issue of jealousy is On Mother's Lap

Just wanted to say that I am ebf my now 5month old. My dd1 was 3 when she was born. Has never batted an eyelid at me breastfeeding. I just explained that her sister is too little to drink from cups etc but that she'll need her help to learn when she's older. And tell her I dd the same fr er when she was a baby.

Dd1 brings me a cushion & muslin cloth if I happen to mention feeding. If dd2 is upset, dd1 says 'she needs mummy's milk'. She 'breastfeeds' her dollies sometimes! And someone mentioned dd2 eating the other day, her reply....'x too little. She eats mummy's boobies!

My New Baby has breast rather than bottle feeding, and also a sling at one point smile

And 'the baby catalogue' by Janet and Alan Ahlberg (more about babies and families in general, but quite a few breast feeding pictures.

Topsy and Tim and the New Baby is good. Their friend Tony becomes a big brother, and the baby is breastfed by mum while the big children get juice...

in Topsy & Tim & The New Baby, they visit a their friend's house and his mum is BFing the new baby.

Brilliant, thanks for all the suggestions, I need a trip to a good book shop and/or an amazon spree now! Out of curiosity i just asked dd what we are going to feed the baby and she said yoghurt!
