Edit What they don't tell you about BFing...
2) Everyrhing leaks!! And all the time. While DS is sucking down one boob the other one will be spraying out like a shower head. And just when I think I have it covered it will start leaking in some backwards unforeseen place (I swear I have a third nipple).
3) My boobs laugh at those tiny breast pads. I have to take ultra thick burp cloths and stuff them down my bra.
4) my baby hates one of my boobs. Seriously he refuses my right boob. I have to trick him to get him to empty it.
5) BF babies poop a LOT!! But I guess that is better than the opposite problem I had with my formula fed babies.
Anyone have anything else they want to add?
Okay, some people have taken this as me complaining, but really I love BFing. I just wish I had been warned lol.
So I will add all the things I love about BFing...
1) I love that it gives me an excuse to hold my baby all the time. With my older boys I wanted to hold them all the time but always felt the need to get up and do other things - like housework. Now feeding my baby is more important than dishes.
2) I love how it made my body shrunk back to normal.
3) I love the bond I have with DS.
4) I love not having to pack bottles or wash bottles of prepare bottles... Ect
5) I love the non stinky poop.
