5. Mom makes breastfeeding video inspired by “All About That Bass” Pennsylvania mom of two and singer-songwriter Lori Burke released “All About That Breast,” her own take on Meghan Trainor’s hit single “All About That Bass”. The song includes inspiring lyrics such as “every ounce of milk is perfect you’ll be nursing like a boss” and “at first you may struggle and want to give up the fight, but just stick with is and soon you and baby will be alright". Burke says she breastfed, pumped, and used formula, so the song does not intend to isolate those who choose not to breastfeed, but rather encourage those who are struggling with nursing.
