We are expecting #2 in August and trying to prepare DD1. She loves books (we don't do TV) and some books on big sisters have gotten her excited.<br><br>
BUT....these books all depict stuff we will NOT be doing, like bottle-feeding, disposable diapers, cribs ect.<br><br>
I would love to find a good children's book that depicts the AP/natural parenting lifestyle. We breast feed, cloth diaper, co-sleep and babywear and I can't find a book that shows any of this. Any suggestions?

Not about siblings but Everywhere Babies is just lovely. Wonderful diversity, and shows AP lifestyle alongside mainstream...like carriers and strollers and breast and bottle...all normal and loving. Very simple rhyhmic verses. My almost 6 year old still loves this old favorite.<br><br>

I used to have this book for sale at LLL meetings when I was a leader. It is lovely. It has a wonderful illustration of a mother nursing her baby in the middle of the night.<br><br><a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325&tag=motheringhud-20&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2FOnly-Cat-Books-Young-Readers%2Fdp%2F0802774881%2Fref%3Dsr_1_1%3Fie%3DUTF8%26s%3Dbooks%26qid%3D1273944427%26sr%3D1-1" target="_blank">http://www.amazon.com/Only-Cat-Books...3944427&sr=1-1</a><br><br>

When I was pregnant with my littlest one, my girls really liked the Sears' books about pregnancy and a new sibling written for children. They show breastfeeding, co-sleeping, babywearing, etc, in the book. They still like to hear them and their brother is getting close to 2-1/2.
