Can You Tell These Real Breastfeeding Products from the Fake Ones?

breastfeeding in public

Our society is pretty weird about breastfeeding, big on shaming moms who don’t do it while also shaming moms who do breastfeed in public. Add to this double-bind the whole pumping phenomenon, and you’ve got a lot of stressed out, under-pressure moms.

So capitalism has caught on by trying to sell all kinds of accessories for nursing and pumping moms (some of those are amazing, don’t get me wrong)—and presto! You’ve got a treasure trove of product-name puns about the words “boob” and “milk” that are funny, infantilizing, strange, clever and honestly, just plain weird.
