Breastfeeding Poem

Posted by Administrator to Pregnancy Humor
While searching for breastfeeding humor in honor of national Breastfeeding Awareness Month (that's this month, in case you missed earlier posts about it), I came upon this new mother's poem about the ups and downs of breastfeeding and thought a few lines elicited enough of a chuckle that it qualifies for a Friday Funny. Here you go: 

 A Comic Ode to Nursing Mothers 
by Ami Burns 

For baby and me
I know nursing is best 
But I feel like my life
Is controlled by my breasts
 
I have no idea where my sex life has been 
'Cause when I want to "do it" 
My milk comes in
 
I have nursed my baby everywhere 
From clothing stores to the dentist's chair
 
When I use my pump, 
I feel like a cow 
And when baby wants to nurse, 
He wants to nurse NOW!

Just when I think it's time for a rest 
Baby's back at it - wanting the breast
 
I'll admit there are times when I just want to scream 
And I pray for the time when my baby is weaned 
I'm engorged, I'm tired, my nipples are sore 
During growth spurts I cry: "I can't take anymore!" 

But then there are the times 
When baby's at my breast 
And nursing actually calms me 
And gets rid of my stress
 
These are the times that we nursing moms treasure 
When nurturing our babies brings us such pleasure 

So when someone sees you nursing 
And asks you "why?" 

The following words should be in your reply:

For baby and me I know nursing is best 
And life's not so bad 
When controlled by my breasts 

Thanks for reading and sharing,
 
Tara
