You know your are a bfing mom when... - Page 5

When you are taking family pictures and stop to nurse and forget to put the girl back in before continuing with the shoot!

I have five pictures of me holding dd in my lap with our dog at my side and my boob hanging out! (dh was behind the camera and didn't even think twice about my boob!)

When your baby doesn't get the typical bald spot on the back of their head from laying on their backs, and instead has thinner spots of hair on the side of their head from spending so much time resting on your arm while nursing

When the baby is crying, my 5 year old says "Mom, feed Ryan your boob NOW!!"

I can totally relate to forgetting to refasten the bra, and getting hickeys on your boobs from dc trying to latch during the night. One morning we woke up and dh freaked out wanting to know "Where the #$!! that hickey came from!" LOL

I was at work (baby comes with) and forgot to snap up my nursing tank. Thank goodness I was wearing the sling so it covered most of it!

When you have breast pads laying all over the house (coffee table, desk, bed, etc.) but never in your bras when you need it!

My MIL actually set her drink on one thinking it was a coaster! LOL

I bet money I will be that way with my grand kids. Because every time I see a baby I have this urge to nurse it

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
awwwwwwww

When you go to meet the new neighbors, stay longer than you intended to, let them hold your baby and spend the last half of the visit hoping your milk doesn't let down while you're there as baby is distracted and happy and not realizing it's time to eat!

When you wake up thinking your baby is latched on, but really she's just asleep with your nipple in her hand.

When you're SO thankful that the boobs don't detach because you seriously doubt you'd be *that* together to remember to pack bottles and formula when you go somewhere... can't tell you how many times I've left the house with the baby and nothing else!

When you just smile when a FF by choice mom asks if you've lost your baby weight yet ...

When your baby starts smacking her lips when you get out of the tub

when you are ravenously hungry all the time.

Or if you just forget about cutting it up and eat it meat-on-a-stick style (stab the whole thing w/ a fork and bite off bits of it, one bite at a time. lol).

My mom was here for the week helping out (she lives out of state and still has little ones of her own at home, but my little one was 11wks and my sister's baby was 2 wks so she came down). Anyway, she took the baby for us one morning so dh and I could get some stuff done for a couple of hours, and I left a bottle of EBM for her...she said it was such a pain she couldn't imagine anyone wanting to ff if bf was an option! She also said it was really annoying to have to heat teh bottle rather than being able to nurse him herself!

(I'm the oldest of the 9...all were natural birth, 8 were born at home, all nursed, several extended nursed, several tandem nursed....oh yeah, my mom rocks.)
