If you thought the Holderness family's cover of Meghan Trainor's "All About that Bass" was the most original one you've heard yet, a new day brings a new cover, so perk up your ears. Musician Lori Burke appears to be giving the Holderness fam a run for their money — or, at the very least, she's definitely getting people to talk (though it's not all praise).
While a good deal of Burke's song is genuinely supportive, with lines like "I got your back, mama" and other encouraging words about not giving up when breastfeeding gets hard, there's one line in particular that's just not sitting well with a lot of moms out there. And it goes something like this: "You know I'm all about that breast, 'bout that breast — no bottle."
Oof. As anyone who's remotely aware of the fiercely tense breast/bottle debate knows that those are some fightin' words!
"I have two children: 6 and 8 years old," explained Burke. "I breastfed both, but also bottle-fed, pumped, used formula — I did it all. So I'm not trying to isolate moms who choose not to. I support all mothers and know that we all have to do what is best for our children and ourselves. Breastfeeding is very stressful as a new mom. But it is the healthiest and least expensive way to feed your newborn, not to mention the bonding, immunities and good things you pass on to your infant."
The Pennsylvania mom also shared that while the Holderness family's recent parody was actually her inspiration for writing the song, the breastfeeding spin came to her suddenly one day while getting her kids ready for school.
