Got Milk? Bugs Found in Baby Formula

Abbott recalls baby formula.

Help! Everything's gone Helter Skelter. Imagine, a Beatle in the formula. Yesterday was just A Day in the Life for Abbott, but now the have to Carry That Weight, the media just won't Let It Be. Infants can't quit formula Cold Turkey, you know, we would see babies detoxing Here, There, and Everywhere. We need to Come Together and find a solution, not start a Revolution. We Can Work it Out.

The End.

AND...hahahaha! That is very similar to a game I used to play with a friend from high school. We had to have a whole conversation in lyrics. Any lyric would do, but it had to have some contextual link to the previous. Good times, good times.

It impacted my baby... lucky that I'm nursing as well or I'd be up a creek without a paddle. I did buy the "copy cat" brand to get by as they sort out all the bugs! LOL!

Laurel- I think I've seen you mention and/or play the lyric game in the comments over at The Rejectionist...

J.J- If it weren't for your your natural abilities, it would be A Hard Day's Night :-)

I have tremendous respect for any nursing mother, having seen my own wife go through the pumping at midnight to have milk for our son, and so she could get through a day of work without exploding. It's one of those things that made me glad I was on the guy-end of it.

I had an ill-advised FB spat about nursing not too long ago. A friend from college posted a comment about how formula should require a script. It flew all over me, especially since it was a HE who posted it.

I nursed both and it was the hardest thing I have ever done, especiallly after going back to work. Breast pumps and airports are a terrible combination.

I did it because I believe in the power of the all mighty boob juice, but I fault no one for going the formula route. Although I suspect a few will rethink it after the bug incident. Shudder.
