What Is Breastfeeding?

Standard

What is breastfeeding?

( . )( . )

It’s babies and mummies, nursies and nummies

Holding and rocking and baby talking.

It’s supply and demand and tiny hands.

Eating, drinking and sitting thinking.

It’s a bond that’s strong, secure, life-long.

 It’s babe’s perfect meal…the real deal.

There to share,  it’s beyond compare.

It’s boobs that leak and nursing top chic.

Squishy embraces and milk-drunk faces.

Breath so sweet and playing with feet.

It’s stressing and guessing and hand expressing,

Tummy squeezing, pumping and freezing.

Delicious and free, it’s cold cups of tea.

It’s what babies desire, it doesn’t expire.

Never hot nor cold, beats anything sold.

It’s mustard poos and permanent up-dos.

Pyjamas, spit-ups, burps and hiccups.

Perfecting latches and tell-tale wet patches.

It’s gazing into eyes, lows and highs.

Peaceful vibes and switching sides

It’s cluster feeds and twiddle beads.

A learning curve and holding your nerve.

It’s comfort, cuddles and sleepy snuggles.

The oldest home cure, sweet and pure.

It’s feeding all hours and wishing for showers.

It’s hitting your stride and filling with pride.

Boobies, bubbies, it’s the warm and fuzzies.

Protection, perfection, two-way affection.

It’s your tribe, troop, your support group.

It’s the love that flows, sprays and grows.

It’s booboos, babaas, num nums and ning

Right now it’s our everything.gtesslll copy

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.
