Abstract or Summary
  • The purpose of this project is to write a children’s book that promotes breastfeeding to acculturating Latin@s. María’s Mamá’s Milk or La leche de la mamá de María is about a little girl named María whose mother is about to give birth. María wonders what the new baby will eat, and through a series of encounters with breastfeeding mothers and babies and many poignant questions, she learns that babies only need one special food to thrive: their mamas’ milk. Through normalizing breastfeeding for all ages, questioning feelings of shame around breastfeeding, and educating people about important breastfeeding information, this book aims to empower more Latinas to breastfeed and encourage open discussion about breastfeeding practices in the United States. Research has shown that as Latinas acculturate, they are less likely to breastfeed because of the deleterious effects of anti-breastfeeding culture in the United States. This book is targeted at children aged 5-7 and is available in a bilingual version that targets English speakers and an additional version entirely in Spanish.
