Platypus Media is an independent publisher dedicated to promoting family life by creating and distributing high quality materials about families.
We disseminate accurate information about attachment parenting, breastfeeding, safe sleep and other important and timely subjects. Our goal is to bring materials to the market that parents love, children enjoy, teachers appreciate, and parenting professionals value.

Platypus Media currently offers a selection of books, booklets, videos, CDs, DVDs, plush toys and other products, many of which have garnered widespread praise. Rave reviews pour in from health care professionals, public health officials, academics, librarians, homeschoolers, educators, and parents alike. We are especially proud that others feel that we are meeting our mission. As the well-respected pediatrician, Dr. Williams Sears, says: Platypus Media’s books not only promote literacy, they promote families!
