This isn't The Babylon Bee – it's a real thing!!
From the Academy of Breastfeeding Medicine website:
Since its founding in 1993, ABM has been building a global community of medical doctors with diverse backgrounds, experiences, perspectives, and specialties. Through its worldwide membership, peer-reviewed journal, Fellowship in Breastfeeding Medicine, Annual International Meeting, and partnerships with other organizations, ABM has created a network of experts and advocates to drive medicine forward in this crucial area.
And that's why the great people at ABM are suggesting that hospitals all across our great nation start using a new breastfeeding term:
Yes, and it's about time!
I can honestly say, as a father I've been waiting for this moment since my very first chestfeed.
It's been years!!
Here's a link to the groundbreaking document, along with a screenshot I stole from someone's Twitter page:
Super cool, right?
Just sort of rolls right off the tongue, doesn't it?
A beautiful term, especially for this day and age.
(Look at all the other terms on there too!)
I reached out to the Academy of Breastfeeding Medicine and asked for an explanation for this new term, hoping for some insight.
Here's what they replied:
Seriously, that was it. Just a GIF.
Again, super cool!
So go on out there, ladies and gents, xes and zes, milkers and non-milkers, and start using this new term.
It's super inclusive!
Well, I'm off to go make some father's milk.
