    Default Breastfeeding, Dr Seuss style (this is hilarious!)

    Breastfeeding, Dr Seuss style!

    Would you nurse him in a park?
    Would you nurse him in the dark?
    Would you nurse him with a boppy?
    And when your boobs are feeling floppy?

    I would nurse her in the park.
    I would nurse him in the dark.
    I'd nurse with or without a boppy.
    Floppy boobs will never stop me.

    Can you nurse with your seat belt on?
    Can you nurse from dusk til dawn?
    Though she may pinch me, bite me, pull,
    I will nurse her til she's full.

    Can you nurse and make some soup?
    Can you nurse and feed the group?
    It makes her healthy strong and smart,
    Mommy's milk is the best start!

    Would you nurse him at the game?
    Would you nurse her in the rain?
    In front of those who dare complain?
    I would nurse him at the game.
    I would nurse her in the rain.
    As for those who protest lactation,
    I have a perfect explanation.
    Mommy milk is tailor made
    It's perfect food, you need no aid.
    Some may scoff and some may wriggle,
    Avert their eyes or even giggle.

    To those who can be cruel and rude,
    Remind them breast's the perfect food.
    I would never scoff or giggle,
    Roll my eyes or even wiggle!
    I would never be so crass or crude,
    I KNOW that this milk's the perfect food!

    We make the right amount we need,
    The perfect temp for every feed.
    There's no compare to milk from breast-
    The perfect food, above the rest.

    Those nursing smiles are oh so sweet,
    Mommy milk is such a treat.
    Human milk just can't be beat.
    I will nurse, in any case,
    On the street or in your face.
    I will not let my baby cry,
    I'll meet her needs, I'll always try.
    It's not about what's good for you,
    It's best for babies, through and through.



    I will nurse her in my home,
    I will nurse her when I roam.
    Leave me be lads, leave me be ma'am
    I will nurse her, MOM I am.

    Can you nurse with your seatbelt on
    Only if the car isn't moving! Breast may be best but NOT if you're about to have an accident.

    Also...
    It makes her healthy, strong and smart
    There is no link between breastmilk and IQ now that proper studies have been done and not just looking at a socioeconomic study under a different name.

    That aside, wonderful poem.

    Actually a recent study has proven that there may be a link between BF and IQ it was a study between siblings who had and hadn't been breastfed and the breastfed siblings did noticibly better.

    Not tryign to start an argument because every study can be twisted to convey what the researcher wants just like someone wanting to prove bf has no impact on IQ can come up with a study to justify that. Just saying that there is a link and its up to the individual what they want to believe


    I LOVE LOVE LOVE this poem and have shared it with many mums

    ETA im prettys ure a boppy is a dummy? could be wrong though

    Thumbs up Love it!

    Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant!

    Made me giggle because you do sometimes get frowned upon for breastfeeding in public.
