" A quiet little picture book about nursing for toddlers. Happy to see a book that prominently features nursing! " said.

" I really like this and am hoping it will work well for night weaning my toddler. She really seems to like it and wants to talk about the story. So hopefully it'll make it a little smoother transition. " said.

"A simple book to help mothers night wean their newborn. An unnamed mother sings to her baby about when it is appropriate for "nursies".

Without the context of the back, the term "nursies" is confusing. It is used like a proper noun, with no explanation, and only a single picture at the end displays what it is. The sentence structure is a simple lullaby format, so the lack of a straightforward description is understandable. However the confusion could have easily been avoided by bringing that one illustration to the beginning.

Each image focuses on the family bond, especially the one with the mother who is narrating. A soft, dreamy touch from watercolours compliments the atmosphere of sleep and love.

In the back, the author includes detailed suggestions on how to night wean.

"If you are in the very specific niche of being a cosleeping, breastfeeding family wanting to night wean your toddler, this book is for you.

It was easy enough to substitute our word for Mama's milk in for nursies, and I also found myself adding in what the Daddy was doing (he's shown in bed and falling asleep, etc. but is not really referred to).

The book is softcover. The illustrations are really beautiful and it's a pleasant read. I wasn't sure it would help in our quest to stop our girl's night wakings to nurse. However, after a few days where we read this book, our little one stirred in the night and I heard her say: milk... sun shine... before GOING BACK TO SLEEP WITHOUT NURSING.

I'm not sure that it was this book alone that did it, but it definitely seemed to help her get the idea of waiting until morning to nurse, and for that I am extremely thankful. Very glad we got this one even if it has limited appeal and use.

"Nursies When The Sun Shines peut se traduire par « Téter quand le soleil est levé ». C’est un livre qui aide les enfants allaités et leurs parents à aborder le sevrage nocturne.

Un enfant de sexe indéterminé se couche dans le lit familial (en cododo, donc) quand la nuit tombe. Sa maman lui explique que la nuit, on dort. Bébé dort, Maman dort, et les seins de Maman dorment aussi. Si jamais Bébé venait à se réveiller, et qu’il fait noir dehors, alors c’est encore la nuit. Et la nuit, on dort. Maman aidera Bébé à se rendormir en le calinant. Quand le soleil se lève, alors il est l’heure de se réveiller, et de prendre sa tétée du matin.

Un très bel album, avec un texte simple mais compréhensible, et des dessins magnifiques. Le but est donc d’amener la notion de sevrage nocturne (c’est à dire de ne plus prendre le sein pendant la nuit) aux enfants allaités. Tout cela est fait de manière douce, sans brusquerie, sans jugement. Dans le respect de l’enfant.

On amène une nouvelle situation, on l’explique, et on donne une alternative (faire un calin). Des repères clairs sont donnés à l’enfant: la nuit, il fait noir, le jour, il fait clair. La nuit on dort, le jour on est actif et on peut téter. La bienveillance est de mise à 100% dans ce livre.

A la fin, l’auteure partage quelques trucs et astuces pour utiliser ce livre dans l’optique du sevrage nocturne.

Il existe plusieurs livres en anglais dédiés au thème du sevrage nocturne, et j’ai choisi celui-ci pour ses illustrations douces, presque féériques. Le livre est court, donc l’enfant ne perd pas le fil, et la couverture est toute veloutée.

Ma fille de 20 mois (un an trois quart, pour ceux qui ne sont pas parents!) a tout de suite voulu le lire plusieurs fois, et je crois qu’elle commence à intégrer les notions développées.

Un petit point négatif: le papa, présent sur les illustrations, n’est pas du tout mentionné dans le texte (ainsi que le chat

" Beautiful illustrations and just the right pacing for a toddler. Someone please make this into a board book! " said.
