That is totally brilliant!

I can't wait until my boobs get a little smaller as the baby gets older. All my old shirt WOULD fit just great if not for "the girls"
Yes. :

I expected the boob size to lessen over time. It's just annoying at this point.

I'm so glad you said this!

My DH frowns on this, but my LO really likes to let "others" nurse. I think it's sweet.

as a pumping mom....

you forgot your breast pads & improvise w/ tissues and end up back at your desk with 2 little rabbit ear-style pieces of tissue hanging out of the top of your shirt and don't notice until someone asks you what are the tissues for?




thank goodness I work w/ other mamas who breast fed & pumped!

this is such a great thread and yes the boob does make everything better

I love the nipple smiles. I'm trying to get a photo of one to keep forever, but he hates flashes going off in his face as he's trying to nurse!

...when crying over spilled milk seems like a perfectly rational reaction

...when you drink a glass of cow's milk, you feel bad for the poor cow who is standing in the milking parlor

...your whole week is made when Puritan's Pride extends their "buy 2, get 3 free" sale for fenugreek



You know you're a working/pumping mom when...

...part of your pre-meeting ritual involves "weighing" your boobs by groping to figure out how long you can stay in the meeting before pumping

...you ask your co-worker if they are going to eat the rest of their cookie at the lunch meeting

...you ask your co-worker if they don't mind "lending" you their banana to be replaced tomorrow (hey! the cafeteria was closed, and I forgot my afternoon snack!)

... you read a newspaper article about pumping, accompanied by a picture of a breastpump and you can name the manufacturer, make, model, size of the horns, and cringe when you see that the valve is pointing the wrong way

...the sight of a day's worth of MM bottles in the fridge makes you happy

...you count your bags of frozen MM like gold bars at Fort Knox

...????????? um.... you really know you're a nursing mom when you know you had 5 more witty responses to the thread, but can't remember them, because you have "milk on the brain"

When, in the brief moment before running like h***, you get lunged at by a poisonous snake and your only thought is, "Oh God, does venom end up in breastmilk?!?!"

And how about the pp nurse I had with DS saying "TITTY FEEDEN'! Oh, love titty feeden'. The most favoritest part of my job, titty feeden!" in her southern accent. : (Wasn't so funny, then, after 24 hours of labor with pit.)

Hey, breasts are the ultimate multi-use item!

Seriously, our bodies are so amazingly designed. The same parts that are decorative are also functional. Beauty and utility meet at the height. It really is amazing.

When the power goes out and all you can think of is....will my milk defrost?!?

When you defrost a bottle and it doesn't get used and you have to make someone ELSE dump it down the drain-because you just can't stand the pain of doing it yourself.

When your husband starts refering to you as a dragon... with a horde of liquid gold in the freezer that you guard religiously.

When the first part of your body dried after you shower is the bra area, so you can get a bra on so the rest of you won't be covered in dried streaks of milk...

- When your cat starts licking you and you realize it's because that's where the baby dribble milk earlier.

- When your power goes out for 12 hours and you are thankful you don't have an urgent need for water or washing anything because your boobs are ready and waiting.

- You carry food and water in the car with you at all times because you are so FREAKING hungry as soon as you start to nurse.

- You get all excited the day you realize you don't need nursing pads 24/7.

- There's a nursing bra on sale and you get disappointed they don't have your size because the one you have you wear every day and it's just not working anymore.

- Your DH makes comments about how great your boobs are and he's not being sexual.

Just when I was feeling guilty about using DD as a picnic table, I discover I'm not alone! I'm waiting for a trail of ants...

When your dog and cat follow the baby around hoping for spit up.

When you get really, really excited for a special event away from babe so you can wear something that doesn't offer quick BFing access.

When your first thought in a prolonged power outage is about your freezer stash.

Your breast pump is your new BFF. (And you pump in the car. While driving.)

When you DTD, DH/DP doesn't mind getting squirted in the face with milk because he knows that means that you're getting turned on.

SO true! Nobody ever says anything where I live - which is great, but some part of me is dying to make a great comeback at someone. Or organize a nurse-in at some place of business. Ha!
