Reality Bites...

I love to nurse and am one of those moms who obsessively nurses my kids F.O.R.E.V.E.R....and since this is my last baby, I think she will be 12 when we stop, thankyouverymuch.

However, I always forget how bad that first week is.

When this sweet innocent face and light 6 pound baby starts coming towards your nipples. Instead of seeing your sweet baby and having soft coos of love streaming from your voice of new motherhood, and enjoying the pleasures of nursing a newborn....what you actually see is...

...THIS. ..and as their open mouth comes closer to you, you close your eyes in wait for the pain, and as they latch-on - your toes curl, your legs come out from under you and you scream every curse word you have ever learned. It is a very special bonding moment. The best part is you get to repeat it at least 8 more times that day. Have I mentioned how much I love Vicodin?

LOL, that describes it PERFECTLY!!! I have found that the hair-raising, whole body cringing, part gets shorter with each baby though...hopefully you will fare the same. And I'm with you, I love nursing & if this is indeed our last (as my husband is insisting) then I'll be right there with you nursing this one into middle school!
Have a great day!

Whoever said nursing does not hurt lied! I thought about quitting several times, but now it is smooth sailing.

if only we didn't have mommy brains that would block out the bad parts, encouraging us to relive the horror all over again-good luck and hang in there!
