About the Book
Mama, Talk About Our New Baby is the story of a young boy who has a new sister. Unlike many of the new sibling books on the market, there is no bottle feeding, crying baby, or sibling jealousy here! The parents in the story take a natural, gentle, or attached approach to caring for their new baby and to family life. The baby is worn, breastfed, and co-sleeps with her family. The boy sees how the baby fits into the family and is now a part of all the things the family does.
