About Emily, the author
Currently training as a Certified Lactation Counselor® (CLC®) with Childbirth International and having breastfed both my sons, I’ve seen and experienced my fair share of breastfeeding trauma!
- Food (and wine) inadvertently dropped on my babies whilst both of us were feeding? √
- Squirted a member of the public with a particularly ferocious letdown on a train? √
- Desperate attempts to get my 2 year old to consider not breastfeeding 17,000 times a day? √
Once we’d got past the engorgement, cracked nipples, and pumping dramas, I found that breastfeeding turned into our failsafe solution for sleep, comfort and everything in between…which made deciding to stop emotionally and logistically difficult!
‘A big change for Seb’ children's picture book is not intended as a magic bullet but it will help you introduce the idea of ending breastfeeding through the narrative of a toddler who is starting to gain independence in other areas of his life.
I wish Seb and his story had existed when I was trying to stop feeding the first time round. I hope it helps many more of you and would love to hear about your individual journeys on my social media.
