Anyone else have a bigger appetite bfing then when pregnant?
Yes, I'm much hungrier and thirstier now, and I tell all pregnant mommies that b/c for some silly reason I didn't expect it. I am now eatting for myself and my 18 lbs 7.5 month old. Obviously she needs more than she needed in utero or as a tiny newborn. DD is still 100% BF. BF is when you're really eatting for two.

I sleep with a sippy cup (yep, a sippy cup ) full of water in the bed with me. That way I can drink water while DD is nursing w/o having to sit up and wake her up more.

...your husband has to cut up your meat for you before you can eat!

you are in the supermarket wearing one of your white t-shirts and realize you forgot to latch your nursing bra...on both breasts!

my ds does this too. We got him a baby doll and a sling and I made him a few cloth diapers for his baby when we had our new one (older ds was 6.5 when baby was born). He named his baby after ours, and likes to carry him around in the sling...when he nurses his baby though, it only takes about 3 seconds. Then his baby is always all full.

When you wake up with hickeys on your breasts because your 6 month old was trying to latch himself in the night but took a few tries to find the nip.

:LOL
This has happened to me a couple of times, and ds is only 2 months!

...when you go bra shopping and your toddler points at the bras and yells "Milk, milk" very excitedly!

...when you toddler sees a woman with big boobs he ponts and yells "Milk, milk very excitedly!

...when you wake up in the morning and your toddler is pointing at your nipple saying, "circle."

...you plan your shopping trips around which stores have the best chairs for nursing....that aren't in the bathroom!!!

..you wake up after getting the best stretch of night sleep in a month and your boobs are rock hard from not nursing all night
..you can do almost anything while nursing.. shopping, eating, walking, typing
..you buy shirts based on how easy it is to bare your chest

you squirt anything you can just for fun--- DH, the cat on the table, the dog, the baby... the strangers congratulating you on your new baby girl for the 20,000,000th time (we have a boy)... just whip and squeeze, solves all your problems! I'd love to be in public and get harassed for NIP, and just squirt them in the eye! I'm sure it'd shut em up, but I'm also sure that's assault or something...

oh, and I grope all the time, everywhere!
post #74 of 111
^^ LOL! I was just saying today its like having built in squirt guns. the cats always look so confused...

You know you are a bfing mom when ...

You don't care who sees your breast, nipple and all, but you do everything you can to keep your flabby belly rolls covered!

You walk right past all the pretty pretty bras and giggle with glee when the nursing bras are on sale and in your size.

You pick your shirt based on what nursing bra you're wearing, instead of picking the bra that works with the shirt you want to wear.

Your baby starts fussing and your older child says "mama, he needs nurn NOW! Get off the computer and GIVE HIM NURN!"

...when your DD can say "teta" (Spanish word for breast) before she can say "Mommy" (actually happened with us)

How about this? You know you're the husband of a BFing mother when...

...you feel sorry for other babies whose mothers feed them formula from a bottle
...you think bottles are nasty-looking, the only bottle your DD needs is mommy's natural ones
...you feel sorry for BFing mothers who cover themselves up in public when they nurse
...you know your wife's nursing bra size and have no problems picking a few out for her...and she loves them
...you walk into a department store and remember to buy nursing pads before she does
...you know how to disassemble, clean, and reassemble your DW's electric pump
...you read Mothering Magazine
