    I love it. Makes me wish I had ink in my printer How very cool (ok, the seatbelt belt bit made me go , but let's call it poetic license)



    According to google, a 'boppy' is a feeding pillow

    I thought that too until I tried it. It is possible, although not very comfortable...

    Very cool poem. What is the source?

    No-one knows the original author but if anyone finds out please let me know...

    Re the seatbelt thing... I would love to reword it, but I don't want to edit the authors original work.

    Seatbelt could be on a plane...I guess.

    I have breastfed on a bus and on a train
    Also on a fishing boat
    I have done it on a ferry and a plane
    And on a Chistmas parade float

    I breastfed when they are hungry
    And also when they are sad
    I often feed them to sleep
    Even though that's 'bad'

    I always have food with me
    Carried right there on my chest
    I am lucky that I am able
    'Cause we all know breast is best!

    Art - that is wonderful!

    I kind of 'fed' yesterday with my seatbelt on... I was expressing whilst DP was driving as he was going to be looking after DD for an hour or so and wouldn't do so without some milk even though she had been fed before we left.

    This is fantastic! Im sending it to all I know!!

    I do feed with my seatbelt on... I quite often do.

    I sit in the back with the girls. DD2 is in her seat, all buckled up. I sit in my seat all buckled up and I just move around a little until she can reach boob.... Not too hard as these boobies are rather large! :O
    It comes in handy on long trips when we want to keep going and she wants to feed. I don't really see anything wrong with it. We are both strapped in and safe. Actually we have been pulled over for rbts whilst i was feeding either DDs and none of the policepersons have had problems with it either!!!
    And I have done this with both DD's too

    Its not that difficult to feed with the seatbelt on, but I suppose it depends on you size and shape, etc. I'm tall, so my boob used to be at the same height as DD's mouth, so that's how we did it. I don't think I could do it now as she's too tall...

    That's gorgeous, that is the sort of thing that should be on a poster in public spaces
