You know you are a Breastfeeding mama when...

post #1 of 53
Thread Starter 

I am finding myself slightly more chagrined at the things that I notice myself doing this time around. :lol Some I'm sure you all do too.  What do you do that makes you laugh?

 

  • You gauge every clothing choice by whether you will have to pull up your shirt, pull down your shirt and the temperature outside.

 

  • You look down and realize that you forgot to relatch the nursing bra...oh, hours ago, and that's why your clothing felt funny
  • Your older child hears the baby complaining and looks at you with irritation and says "Will you nurse the baby already?!?"

When you sit down in a corner booth at a restaurant and your 4 y/o says "mommy, you can sit here where no one will see your boobs."

When all of your children don't give their baby dolls bottles, but lift up their shirts and reenacts breastfeeding to make their dollies go night night.

When you can't count the number of people (who aren't your SO, Dr, or friends/family) who have seen your boobs lately.

Ooh I like this one!

When you catch your three year old holding a breast pump to her belly button, and when asked says she's trying to get some juice. (maybe this one is just me smile.gif )

When you spend walks praying no one will peek into the sling to see the baby and be greeted by a whole lot of boob instead.

When you're never quite sure if the stain on your shirt is spit up or the product of a leaky boob.

After frequent pumping and nursing, you frequently feel to check that you closed your shirt.
You wake up most mornings with your gown open for easy access (by the baby!)

You find it noteworthy when you wear a real bra.

when you pop out your breast to feed a fussing baby and don't care who see

when someone asked if you can use a blanket to cover up and you offer them the blanket to put over their head while they eat

These are great!!!

Another one of mine:
When your big claim to fame is that you nursed your baby in a restaurant on her one month birthday while Ed Begley Jr. Ate at the table across the way. lol.gif

Bahahaha, Ed Begley junior! I don't know why that's cracking me up so hard.

When someone compliments you on losing weight lately just as you polish off your second entree.

When the waiter says "Anyone save room for dessert?" Your table mates grumble how full they are and you pipe in "Yes please!"

Your number one criteria for choosing a shirt when you dress is "how easily can I pop a boob out?"

It was hilarious. I got all settled and was nursing her and looked up to see him across the way. He smiled and went back to his food. lol.gif

This is a great thread! I can't think of anything novel right now but an amen to all of the above--especially about selecting clothing. Even after 15 months, I still choose an outfit entirely upon BFing friendliness!

When your spilled coffee is soaked up by your breast pad.
post #15 of 53
When all the spills on your desk at work are drops of breastmilk from pumping smile.gif
I do the checking the shirt thing too, especially at work!
And yes to the ability to "pop out a boob" for my clothing choices.

These are all great, keep 'em coming!

When you open your bag up and find week old pumped milk and want to cry.

 

When you skip pumping on date night just so you can fill our your dress.

Yep. I recently went lingerie shopping, realized I had no idea what my bra size actually was.

This thread is cracking me up, ladies smile.gif

More from me:

 

When 6 meals in a day might not actually be enough to keep you from feeling hungry constantly.

 

When your toddler eyes your chest from across the room and races over.

 

When your toddler happily pats your chest when she's done nursing....or helps you latch your bra.  :2whistle
