Me – the walking boob!

Some of you may know that I was very scared and intimidated of breastfeeding. The thought of having a baby on me all of the time really made me nervous. Well I am happy to say that I have been breastfeeding this entire time and each and every day it is getting easier and better! Although, I am really a walking boob buffet for Jordan. I think Marc is a bit jealous! ๐Ÿ™‚ I have not once in my life popped my boobs out as much as I have in the past 3 weeks! And can I say Pamela Anderson?! I was a perfect padded A cup… now I have hit the DD mark! It’s a love hate relationship, I would say.
But I must confess: there are up’s and down’s and I weigh out the options everyday. (Formula or boob)
Pro’s and con’s:

  • I love the fact that breastfeeding burns calories. Not a lot but while I sit and be at Jordan’s beckon call, it is nice to know that I am burning calories without ever putting my gym shoes on.
  • It calms Jordan down – immediately!
  • It’s free! Formula is just so expensive!
  • Yes, it is helping us bond together, although I wish I had some of my independence back ๐Ÿ™‚
  • I am still figuring out how to breast feed in public and it makes it hard to go anywhere for long periods of time.
  • Also how to juggle guests in our home.
  • I have to use a nipple shield as my ta-ta’s don’t want to cooperate!

I don’t know how long I will keep this up. I may have to set mini goals for myself to keep it up. I have made it 4 weeks, so now I am going for 6, then 8.
Boobs – I salute you!

    You are so funny Tash! I am proud of you for making it this far! They say that the first 6 weeks are the most crucial for the breast milk, that’s how far I made it only because i was pumping full time… And yes that damn formula is soooo expensive!!
