Pleasure of Padstow

 

The pleasure of Padstow, as a family,
Is in the countryside, costal paths and the sea.
Who’d have thought dolphins would ride alongside our boat
And a farm shop stocking ten Cornish gins. Arrgh don’t!
Too much excitement for the food, Cornish cheese!
And freshly caught oysters that brought us to our knees.
We love our seafood, Nathan Outlaw was divine
But Prawn on the Lawn, Oh my! Try it some time.
The many Michelin star restaurants don’t take babies
But Outlaw’s Fish Kitchen, accept the little monkeys.
We were wood fire warm in Bodhi’s Air bnb
A small high spec beach hut, perfect for you, dad and me.
A hot shell massage was the perfect mummy treat
And wine from Cornish vineyards, made for a long receipt.
You see Padstow isn’t all about Rick Stein,
Though he shouldn’t be missed and neither should the wine.
The best beaches are to be found outside of town
And linked by costal paths, whose views didn’t let us down.
Our favourite walk was Carnewas at Bedruthan,
Ending up back at their café, was the best plan.
So the pleasure of Padstow’s in the nature you see
And the local food you can fit in your tummy.

Medela Nipple Shield

Medela nipple shield you’ve allowed me to feed,
Pulling my flat nipples to meet my baby’s need.
I nearly gave up hope until you came along,
She’s now sat at them, for hours, for a year long.
My breastfeeding journey hasn’t been a simple one
But without you, I’m so sure my milk would’ve gone.
The little yellow box contains her brilliant straw
And now she, sweetly, goes for it when she wants more.

For the year, surprisingly, I only needed two.
A blissful year seeing my milk, as they’re see-through.
If you have inverted nipples you can still nurse,
These shields made my days better, when I feared the worse.
Her latch was always good and so I thought I’d lost
But I’m so glad I tried these, it was well worth the cost.
She’s taken my immunity, thrived in a year.
To the best yellow box, that made my milk appear.
