Mammary Monday DVD

Okay, I know it's a DVD, but we actually have this in the library and it's made me and all my colleagues laugh. Some weird kind of man-with-boobies is photoshopped behind a baby. And all this time I thought breast-feeding consisted of: have baby, attach to breast. How wrong I am.

Yum yum!

I am scared of any baby wearing a bib that says "yum yum". Plus it looks psychotic.

I think the baby looks a little plastered...what's mom's alcohol content?

Christine said...

Is it photoshopped, though? If you look, there's a hand holding the baby under its left arm.

We have this one at our library too; exact same reaction.

That baby looks like W.C. Fields --drunk and lecherous.

Could somebody please PLEASE move the baby out of the way. It's really killing my fondness for ladies in bras.

"...and all the Supplies you will need"?

In my observation, most women who breastfeed already have both of them, and don't need a DVD to explain that to them.

agree with david b which makes me wonder if women are the target audience (he says loading his copy into the dvd player and fastforwarding to 23:17).

In fairness, breast-feeding is harder than a lot of people think. It *is* possible to do it wrong (or so I hear from women who took some advice on it and found it got a lot easier).
That said, the composition of the DVD cover is still pretty horrendous.

How do you make breast feeding look like a playboy magazine to sell DVD's???

I've seen the "man-boob" thing what a guy straps on and "breast feeds" a kid with either mother's milk or formula.

It's completely, just completely so, I don't know what to say other than strange. The babies still spit-up all over you... and piddle and poo. That's what those little angels do.

I, as a bachelor uncle (old boy scout and methodical scientist) was never sprayed or pooed on when I had to change diapers. My nieces, they got it daily. Thus ended my illusions that women were better at taking care of babies.

I just realized, there are no nipples on those boobs.

So many wrongs here.
Creepy baby. Scrawny perfect model in the background. Bikini instead of maternity bra. And as Dave pointed out, No NIPPLES!!! (I mean, it's been a while, but I recall nipples were essential for the whole feeding thing).
*shudder*
A new mum struggling to get her screaming newborn to attach would not buy this. Some 'helpful' uncle would see this, have a Quagmire moment and think he was helping.

That model in the background is definitely not the mother. Even skinny women develop huge jugs after they spawn. I've seen some of my friends/acquaintances, tiny petite girls, develop D cups.

Regarding the "no nipples" complaints: it's reminding me of one time when a fellow international student said "have you noticed that Americans don't wear padded bras?"

Why DON'T you?

I think they had a picture of a baby being held up by somebody, but they didn't like the look of the person holding the baby (maybe it was a guy? or maybe just not model pretty?). So, they kept the baby and the person's hands and Photoshopped in Baywatch Barbie, complete with plastic boobs.
