In this parody of the AC/DC hit “You Shook Me All Night Long,” the funny ladies of MYLF (Mothers You’d Like to Friend) sing about breastfeeding.
“Eating more than her share, she was pulling my hair,” the women sing in the parody. “She told me, ‘Let down!’ But I was already there.”
“Cause the milk starts makin’, baby starts wakin’, my nipples start achin’ and you start takin’ it. And you, nursed me all night long. Yeah, you, nursed me all night long.”
They launched the parody during World Breastfeeding Week because breastfeeding mums often struggle or feel isolated while learning to nurse their newborns.
“Latch problems, milk supply problems — it’s actually not that easy for many new moms when they first bring their babies home,” Sapron told TODAY Parents. “There are so many mysteries surrounding breastfeeding and it can be so hard, for the first few weeks at least, for new moms. It’s invaluable to have women openly talking about it and supporting each other through that.”
“We know that seeing things helps desensitize those things,” said Masha Sapron, a California mother-of-three. “Seeing breastfeeding helps those who are put off by breastfeeding become desensitized to it…we should not have to wear a shawl of shame over an infant when we are in public.”
“Our video takes the purity of breastfeeding and juxtaposes it with an 80s song about sex and references other 80s videos that objectified women,” Sapron continued. “Guess what, guys? Those hot women you want to get with so badly? Once you do, sex leads to babies and babies lead to boobs — breastfeeding boobs.”
“The fact is, even if you feel like a cow all the time and even if you are exhausted from lack of sleep or are having troubles with latch or milk supply, you aren’t alone. We hope other moms will watch this and laugh, knowing we get it.”
“An ode to all nursing moms. You’re not alone. AND you still got it! (Happy World Breastfeeding Week! Free the nipple!!)”
Very catchy! I am sure many of our readers can totally relate to this one.
