When you choose to become a breastfeeding mom, you don’t really think about how it will feel.
There will be some super sweet moments, but there will also be some moments where you want to run screaming from your house, never mind if your top is soaked with breast milk -and we all know it will be if you skip a feeding when you run away.
Every mother’s breastfeeding experience is different, but there are some things every breastfeeding mom has thought at one time or another. You may not have all of these under your belt, but we kinda think you have had at least one of these dance through your mind while feeding your little one.
If You’re a Breastfeeding Mom, This Is Your Life
It hurts. THEY SAID IT WOULDN’T HURT!
But sometimes, it is agony.
That little hand.
So, sweet, so worth it.
And those sweet sounds. He’s like a starving baby bird.
Or a like a wolverine with the way he’s sucking.
OH MY GOSH I FORGOT MY PHONE!
Now I can’t check in on my friends in mom.life app!
Relief, sweet relief.
The only time a let down feels amazing!
Tired. Just. So. Tired.
Because nursing is exhausting.
And I am starving.
Someone get me a snack.
My baby doesn’t have to wait to eat.
And I will cut your if you try to tell me to cover up.
How can someone so tiny be so hungry?
He’s been at it for an hour and I have to pee!
Will my boobs every be my own again?
One day. Maybe one day.
