I cannot take credit for this, it was printed in our quarterly newsletter from our childbirth educators; they credited posters on the Mom’s Online Breastfeeding Board. It seemed so fitting for my little boobaholic that I had to share.

Mom I Am

Little ones can squirm and pout,
make a fuss and scream and shout.
When hunger hits without a doubt,
Sit right down and whip it out.

I would nurse her if she cried,
I could nurse her far and wide,
Here and there and anywhere,
Up or down or on a chair.
 I could nurse a teddy bear.
For this fine milk is very rare!!!

Would you nurse him on a train?
Would you  nurse him on a plane?
Would you nurse him in a car?
Would you nurse him in a bar?

Yes, on a train, yes on a plane.
 Yes, in a car, yes in a bar.
 I would nurse him here or there
I would nurse him anywhere!

I would nurse him in a booth,
 On the stairs or near the roof.
Anywhere my boy cries out,
 I pop the nummies in his mouth.

I can serve it by the ounce,
 I can serve it while I bounce.
 In a bottle  or in a jar,
 I can serve from near or far. 

Would you, could you nurse in church?
Would you on a shaky perch?
Would you, could you, in the stands?
Could you nurse him with no hands?

I would, I could nurse in church,
 Even on a shaky perch.
In the stands, with no hands
I'll nurse my baby on demand.

Would you nurse him at the store?
Would you nurse him on the floor?
Would you  nurse him on a ship?
Careful not to show your nip!

Would you nurse him while on skis?
Would you nurse her on your knees?
Would you nurse him in a tree?
Mommy milk is SO GOOD, you see.

Would you nurse him by the stream?
You could  nurse him while you dream.
 Can you nurse and clean the house?
Can you nurse and chase a mouse?
Can you nurse and cook a meal?
Mommy's milk is the real deal!

Would you nurse him while you sleep?
How about while you sweep?
Could you nurse him in a sling?
Would you, could you, while you sing?
How about upon a swing?
Mother's milk is just the thing!

Would you nurse her at the park?
Would you nurse him in the dark?
Would you nurse him with a Boppy?
And when your boobs are feeling floppy?

I would nurse him in the park,
 I would nurse her in the dark.
 I'd nurse whit or without a Boppy.
Floppy boobs will never stop me.

Can you nurse with your seatbelt on?
Can you nurse fro dusk till dawn?
Though she may pinch me, bite me, pull,
 I will nurse her 'till she's full!

Can you nurse and make some soup?
Can you  nurse and feed the group?
It makes her healthy strong and smart,
Mommy's milk is the best start!

Would you nurse him at the game?
Would you nurse her in the rain?
In front of those who dare complain?

I would nurse him at the game.
I would nurse her in the rain.
 As for those who protest lactation,
 I have a perfect explanation.
 Mammy milk is tailor made
It's perfect food, you need no aid...

Some may scoff and some may wriggle,
 Aver their eyes or even giggle.
 To those who can be cruel and rude, 
Remind them breast's the perfect food!

I would never scoff or giggle,
 Roll my eyes or even wiggle!
I would not be so crass or crude,
 I KNOW that milk's the perfect food!

We make the right amount we need,
 The perfect temp for every feed.
 There's no compare to milk from breast---
The perfect food, above the rest.

Those nursing smiles are oh so sweet,
 Mommy milk is such a treat.
Human milk just can't be beat.

I will nurse, in any case,
 On the street or in your face.
 I will not let my baby cry,
 I'll meet her needs, I'll always try.
 It's not about what's good for you,
 It's best for babies, through and through.

I will nurse her in my home,
 I will nurse her when I roam.
Leave me be lads, leave me be ma'am.
I will nurse him, mom I am.

    Love it!! I have nursed Nate in a bar, in an airport, on planes, in the back of the car, in restaurants and stores. I have fallen asleep nursing him, nursed him sitting standing, lying down and walking around. I think he is somewhat starting to wean himself and it a bit tough for me to get a grip on right now, but I’m trying very hard.

    What a great poem to share with new nursing moms!

    That was great! I loved the part about the nursing smiles – those are wonderful. I have definitely failed at “being careful not to show a nip” though!
