‘Experts’ know breast?
I’m sick of hearing ‘breast is best’,
I had to get this off my chest.
Formula feeding is just fine too
if that is what you need to do.
Sometimes Mothers’ have no choice
but have to listen to voice after voice,
compounding the guilt they’re made to feel
by providing baby with a formula meal.
When a Mum is exhausted, all she needs
is someone to question the way she feeds.
Do you want to tip her in to depression
by your thoughtless, insensitive judging session?
There are many reasons breast can’t be done.
It doesn’t make you less of a Mum.
You love your baby with all your heart.
I know you’ll give yours the very best start.
She’ll have heard and read all the advice
a thousand times, it isn’t nice.
So much guidance, all for breast;
where’s the support when it isn’t best?
Perhaps ‘experts’ could spend more of their time
stopping child abuse, or fighting crime?
Not harassing Mums on their relentless task
I hope that isn’t too much to ask.
