Breastfeeding kittens

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
One of the pregnancy-related dreams I had when I was pregnant with Nicholas was that I gave birth to a kitten, and couldn't get the kitten to latch on to save my life. That dream turned into a self-fulfilling prophecy when Nicholas and I failed to establish a breastfeeding relationship, due to a multitude of reasons (c-section, he was given a bottle for marginal blood sugar directly after birth, he was impatient, I was frustrated, he was jaundiced, I was told to supplement, I brought him home on Saturday, and as of Monday, had no one in the house with me for more than 12 hours a day, since my husband had to go back to work, yada yada....)

Anyhow, last night I dreamt of the kitten again. Still a male kitten, but this time, I managed to breastfeed it. Except the milk was curdled. Can you tell I have some anxiety about breastfeeding? It's the first pregnancy-related dream I've had this pregnancy, and it's weird that it is so similar to one of the ones I had when pg with Nick.

Hi from April DDC!
I dreamed this too about a month ago...that our cat had a kitten but then died, so I had to nurse it...and I couldn't get it to work. I'm not lactating yet and I felt so bad...LOL!

Crazy!!! I had a dream I gave birth to a kitten with my first pregnancy as well. I forgot to feed it and sadly it passed. Weird!
