Boobs

Standard

‘Boobs’.. it’s safe

to say can be quite controversial,

they’re extremely sought after to sell anything

commercial, but used how biology and nature intended,

they can cause such a fuss that the uptight get offended.  So why is there

such an almighty uproar when a mum lifts her shirt to feed a baby outdoors?

If a man and his lawnmower can take the same action without fear of reprisal

reprimand or reaction? The world now it seems has become so very unjust to the

beauty and power of the female bust. Their dual functionality,  both fetish and food

has let them become rather terribly misunderstood. We need change to begin with

everyone realizing, that ALL humans have boobs it’s just a matter of sizing.

Lets hope in the future it won’t be an issue, that folks will be equal

with no thought of breast tissue.  I’ll finish with what my

nursling would say if she could, which i’m assuming

of course is.. ‘HURRAY for BOOBS!

An Edible Pact

Standard

An Edible Pact.

Breastfeeding is normal, nature designed babies to eat,

Curled up at our breasts, listening to our hearts beat.

And the magic in this loving and wondrous act,

is a bond so incredible, an edible pact.

(.)(.)

We’ve captured its beauty in all manner of ways

We’ve posed for oil paintings, for sculptures, for days,

From cave drawings to pyramids, babes from all times and places,

Are shown just where they should be with boobs in their faces!

(.)(.)

Today breastfeeding is celebrated by those who can and who choose,

To feed their own babies, (how did that make the news?)

We take precious photos, upload to blogs or to twitter,

But if we share them on Facebook, we’re left feeling bitter.

(.)(.)

Facebook have shunned them. Their beauty forbidden,

Their twisted policy states that our nipples be hidden.

“Breastfeeding’s permitted” it concedes but what’s written

Leaves mothers nursing their wounds without having been bitten.

(.)(.)

Breastfeeding is normal, its just what we do.

So keep sharing your pictures and I’ll take some too,

Until boobs feeding babies is so common a sight,

That no-one will notice and all will be right.

Breastfeeding Myths

Standard

For my friend and inspiration Anne at Dispelling Breastfeeding Myths.

Breastfeeding Myths

Breasts have fed babies since time immemorial,

but some modern advice has gotten simply deplorable,

Lets look at these myths with the aim of dispelling

the half-truths and fiction from the stuff that’s worth telling.

(.)(.)

First off, anatomically for you to succeed,

you’ll need nipples like sign posts and cups; double D’s.

Its nonsense of course, you needn’t win any prizes,

boobs that feed babies come in all shapes and sizes.

(.)(.)

Isn’t Breastfeeding painful? It’s more than an itch.

I knew someone who tried it said it hurt like a b*%ch!

Nursing shouldn’t be painful, nor cause you to yelp!

Most women find comfort when they get the right help.

(.)(.)

Your baby’s too skinny, your milk’s not enough,

to fatten them up I hear formula’s good stuff.

Ladies trust your own bodies, its demand and supply,

before grabbing that bottle there’s so much to try.

(.)(.)

Well what if you’re out and your baby needs fed?

Breastfeeding’s not decent! Bring a bottle instead.

Breastfeeding is beautiful, not indecent or lewd,

you can feed baby anywhere, after all it’s just food.

(.)(.)

But you’ll have to stop anyway if you ever get ill,

your baby could catch it and you’re not allowed  pills!

You’ll find many safe meds and breast milk’s so clever,

Baby get antibodies when you’re under the weather.

(.)(.)

Aren’t bottles just easier ’cos that’s what I’ve heard?

All her babies loved them, it’s what they preferred!

With strange nipples and teats babes’ confusion can hurt,

But what’s more convenient than unbuttoning your shirt?

(.)(.)

I hope now it’s clear there’s no wisdom in rumour.

Old wives and their tales can tell little but humour.

 So what will you need to feed your little creation?

Support…. more support and the right information!!
