Multi-tasking mother bowls a strike while breastfeeding her baby daughter
- Kristin Whalen, from Salem, Illinois, nurses daughter Lorelei as she scores strike
- The mother-of-two holds the baby’s head as she lowers herself into position
- Ms Whalen sends the ball spinning towards the ten pins at the end of the lane
This is the hilarious moment a nursing mother returned to the bowling alley for the first time in years and bowled a strike – at the same time as breastfeeding her infant daughter.
Minutes earlier Kristin Whalen had been discussing with her friends at the alley in Salem, Illinois, how mothers could do anything.
Still breastfeeding as her turn came around, she added: ‘like even bowl while nursing,’ before picking up the orange ball and sending it down the lane to take out all ten pins.

During the impressive shot, the mother-of-two, who is carrying daughter Lorelei in a sling, supports the baby’s head with her left hand and sends the ball spinning with her right.
After scoring the strike – and proving her point spectacularly – Ms Whalen nonchalantly walks away with her daughter cradled in her arms.
The footage was filmed on June 7 while she was celebrating her nephew’s birthday at the bowling alley.

This is not the first time bowlers have been filmed scoring a strike in a creative manner.
In May 2018, McKinley Knopp from Campbellsville, Kentucky, was filmed performing a mind-blowing trick that involved knocking over all ten pins using two balls.
During the clip, Mr Knopp sent one bowling ball crashing into the pins at pace and left just one standing.
The final pin was then knocked over by another slow spinning ball that Mr Knopp released moments earlier.
