Babies cry when they want to tell us something. Sometimes they want to be changed. Sometimes they want to be picked up and hugged. But sometimes we don’t know how to get baby to settle down.
“You look like you want something. Do you want your shiny tambourine?
“Aw, you don’t want your tambourine?”
In What Does Baby Want?, a new book from Phaidon, neither baby’s teddy bear, ball, not even the shiny tambourine will soothe. This baby is ultimately only satisfied by one thing: mother’s milk.
Created by award-winning design duo and husband and wife team Tupera Tupera, this simply worded and refreshingly honest shaped board book celebrates breastfeeding, capturing a special moment between mother and baby with honesty, accuracy, anxiety, and…relief. Portraying a scenario that’s as regular a part of most parents’ and babies’ daily rituals as bath time and bed time, What Does Baby Want? is for nursing babies AND their older siblings; it’s for their parents AND parents-to-be. It’s for mothers who are stuck on the couch for hours on end nursing and who would rather laugh about it than cry. And yes, it’s OK to laugh: it’s funny because it’s true.
This uniquely shaped board book is for every child who pretends to nurse his or her doll. It’s baby’s first book. It’s mama’s first baby book. It’s a playful baby shower gift. It’s the perfect gift. It’s “completely developmentally appropriate and fits with the pro-breast-feeding message most doctors advocate. All-around brilliant.” (Kirkus Reviews, starred)
