As any breastfeeding mom will tell you, life is full of laughs once you nurse a child. Often embarrassing and always hilarious, these confessional stories are written by real breastfeeding moms—and even one dad who unsuccessfully tried to nurse.
Every one of these “diary” tales is guaranteed to leak lots of laughs from nursing-moms-to-be, experienced moms who nurse day in and day out, and older moms who want to relive those funny misadventures from nursing years gone by. Stand-up comedian and breastfeeding veteran Kate Davis adds comic relief as the anthology’s editor. She also shares her own hilarious nursing mishaps, showing how to milk the mother lode of humor from breastfeeding!
Pump up the laughs:
• A mom gets busted by a state trooper for PWS (Pumping While Speeding) on the interstate.
• A group of nursing moms are mistaken for an art exhibit at a museum.
• A corporate mom inadvertently broadcasts a pumping session via videoconference.
• A harried mom has a leaking problem at the supermarket—but with a twist.
There are so many more hilarious tales—all of which will have you laughing out loud and recalling your own misadventures in breastfeeding. It’s so funny, once you pick it up, you won’t want to put it down—even when it’s time to nurse!
