Had my first breast feeding argument, guess I should be proud, lol
I am 13 weekd pregnant. I don't post too much in this group, because I am still learning, and with no baby yet, I don't even know what questions to ask, lol. But I am VERY excited to breast feed this baby, and am going to do every thing in my power to BF until a year! I will have to pump starting at around 4 months when I have to go back to work.
Anyway, no one in my family has ever BF. My mom is supportive, but also really ignorant. Last night she says, the neighbor got a free can of similac in the mail and I saved it for you. I said well, you know I'm bfing, I won't need it, she says, well, I'll keep it just in case, you never know. I was already annoyed with her about that. I'm like if I don't even have a baby and she already thinks I can't do it, what's it going to be like when the baby is here. I know the first few weeks can be challanging, and know she wil push FF.
Then we were talking about my sister, who isn't sure if she wants kids, but if she does, she will NOT be BFing because she doesn't want her boobs to get saggy (my mom didn't BF for the same reason). I said well, BFing or not, if she gets pregnant, her boobs will sag. I'm 13 weeks and mine have already doubled in size, they get big from the pregnancy hormones, not bfing. She told me, you only think that because you read all "those pro bfing sites". All my friends that BF all had banna boobs. (SHe had already said she has only ONE friend who BFed). I wanted SO BAD to say well, you didn't bf and yours have been droopy for as long as I remeber! But figured that would be a low blow. Ugh, I was so aggrivated! Even if my boobs hang down to my knees and I have to tuck them into my socks I'll do that if it's what best for my baby! is what I finally told her. Geeze, guess I should get ready, chances are it's only going to get worse when the baby comes.
