Songs for Nursing Moms

by Glenni Lorick, IBCLC

Music is a wonderful part of life. I used to sing to my babies as we would nurse, and I imagine that many of you do the same thing. But lately I've come across some very special songs that I wanted to share with you...songs that will bring a smile to your face or maybe even have you laughing so hard you cry!

Nine Months of Breastfeeding

Today we are going to take a look at the breastfeeding journey through songs that I've come across online. In this adorable Taylor Swift parody, Rebecca Mcelroy reviews her first nine months of breastfeeding 

Building a Breastfeeding Environment

The creative students at St. Francis Xavier University in Nova Scotia came up with a delightful parody to Carly Rae Jepson's "Call Me Maybe" to raise awareness that breastfeeding in public is normal. They didn't use real babies because of the style of  the video, but they did a great job getting the idea across that mothers should be able to breastfeed comfortably anywhere they are!

Ruin Your Day

Of course one of the most popular and widely seen breastfeeding songs isn't a parody at all. It is an original song by Australian duo Sparrow-Folk. The first time I saw this song I couldn't stop laughing. The cafe setting is perfect, and the scene of a dad feeding his baby in the bathroom is absolutely priceless! 

All About That Breast

Just last month, Lori Burke, of Eerie, PA came up with a terrific parody of Meghan Trainor's song "All About That Bass." As a mother of two, both of whom she breastfed, Burke wanted to help encourage new moms in their early breastfeeding struggles. She does a terrific job in this song which will put a smile on any nursing mom's face!

I can't wait to find more fun songs for nursing moms! If you create one, please let me know so I can feature it in a future blog!!
