The Breastfeeding Song

I didn't know there was an actual breastfeeding song until now, which is kind of sad since I'm no longer breastfeeding.

Then again, I'm not really sure that it matters. I can't imagine ever singing it. In fact, I think it's sort of awful!

I never thought breastfeeding was a super power. My body just did what it was made to do, and I was lucky enough to have supportive people around to help when things were not going smoothly. I don't see it as a special talent any more than say, farting or sneezing. (ooooh, I'm gonna get flack for this!)

Sorry, but I don't think breastfeeding gets you VIP access to an exclusive club - people all over the world do it every day. You're not special.

Like I heard someone else say, "let's just concentrate on getting children all over the world fed and not so much on how they're fed!" Word.
