We *heart* The Places You’ll Feed!

In honor of World Breastfeeding Week — yes, it’s a thing! — we want to celebrate feeding babies by sharing this silly, fantastic, creative, laugh-til-you-spray-milk book: The Places You’ll Feed!

In a house or with a mouse? In a supply closet or the front seat of a minivan with your legs squished by the steering wheel? Dang, author Lauren Hirshfield Belden makes it look so easy with her Dr. Suess style illustrations and artful rhymes about nursing and pumping! Somehow she managed to capture the universal truths all set to a bedtime-story rhythm.

Check out these sample pages of her new book, The Places You’ll Feed!
