Just how many funny things are there to say about breastfeeding? Apparently, there's quite a few. I was just getting ready to throw up a few new slogans myself when some suggestions came in from folks that have visited the site.

Last week, one of my readers wrote in to ask if I could try to come up with a shirt designed for moms that pump, but not exclusively. At the time, the best I could come up with was the "pumped" shirt. Since then, I managed to find an appropriate font to set up a nice place on pimp juice. Thus, we now offer the "pump juice" shirt.

Earlier this week I added a little more attitude to the site with the "that's my baby's lunch you're staring at" shirt, and today saw me playing off my own personal joke with another variation on milk shake.

So...I've added a new shirt that reads: "My milkshake feeds all the kids in the yard." Perfect for moms that are tandem nursing or nursing multiples. ;)

Finally, my friend Danny wrote to point out that in the UK, there is a very popular television series called "Little Britain." One of the sketches on the first season of Little Britain revolved around a man and his girlfriend and his relationship with his mother. (Seems like this son is the nightmare of every mom that believes in child-led weaning as adult.) Anyway, Harvey and Jane head off to visit Harvey's mum and dad and Harvey starts demanding "bitty." He keeps it up until his mum gives in and nurses him.

(check it out...I laughed out loud.)
Harvey Wants Bitty

Thus, in honor of Harvey and to keep all our breastfeeding friends across the pond in stiches, I've added adult shirts that read "Get your bitty!" and children's clothes that say "Not bitty later, bitty now."
