Excellent list, ladies! Mine is when you choose which baby carrier you'll use on an errand depending on the placement of leaked milk and baby spit up that day.

Amazing! Lots of LOLs from hubby and me, though I don't experience many of these ups and downs as a mom who needs to supplement (my diaper bag is huge, and so is my body)

I LOVE the idea of telling someone they can go put blanket over THEIR heads and the thought of a little boy wanting to bf his kids someday. So sad!

Here's mine:


When you stand in your closet, mourn the fact that between nursing and body changes from pregnancy you have only three things to wear, and then go fish them out of the laundry.

When you THINK you desperately miss sexy touches on your breasts, but as soon as hubby attempts to, you angrily bat his hands away. No touching!

When you glow with mama love when your baby starts caressing you and patting you while nursing. So sweet!

When LOs first time rolling over was when you brought her close to you for side lying nursing.

That feeling like it's never going to end... But you kind of wish it would because you are tired.

When you constantly have to untangle your nursing bras from your tank top straps.  

 

When the UPS guy is afraid to look when you open the door because last time you forgot to put your boob back.  

 

When your husbands only solution to a crying babe is to yell "It's BOOBY tiiiiiime!"

When teething is just as painful for you as baby.

 

"Oh, poor baby!" "Thanks, I'm doing better though." :odd look person giving the little biter sympathy:

I had to revive this because this thread cracks me up. 

 

Mine is when your 4 yo old DS hands your 19 mo old DS his baby doll and says, "your baby is crying, brother, time to nurse!"

 

and when anyone asks your 19 mo old what a small animal figure is, he says "mama cow" turns it over, points to the udder and says "nurse".  And if it happens to be an anatomically correct animal, says "daddy cow", turns it over points and says "memis, no nurse".

:rotflmaothat is too funny - you have a very sharp little one!

 

For me, it's when I forget to pull my hands-free pumping bralette out from under my shirt when I arrive at home/work/the store after pumping on my commute. It's bright red, and I've caught it trailing from my clothes or falling on the ground a couple times. It makes me feel like I'm tracking a piece of TP, but for something even more private! :blush

When you try to calculate how many liters of milk you've produced (I'm still flabbergasted by the fact that I can make food!:D)

When you have a boppy at home and one in the car. Which have been affectionately dubbed the "boobie pillows"

You have to make your 10 year old push the cart in the store because the baby gets way too excited and touchy feely with you in the middle of the store.

DD makes her littlest pet shops and lego people nurse their babies.

...when it takes you an hour to realise that you have been walking about the house with a boobie hanging out.

 

... when you lift the heavy nappy bin with pride. That was all ME!

 

... when your bra smells of sour milk.

 

... when your baby start sleeping through, but you can't, because Candy and Trixi the milky titties are exploding.

You know your a breastfeeding mamma when you try to wear a regular bra and you lay on the ground to play with baby and he starts crying because he can't crawl to your boob that fell out and didn't even know.

When you consider getting a babysitter for a night out instead of bringing your toddler along to the event as originally planned *just* so you can wear the (non-nursing friendly) dress that you really want to wear!

Your toddler has breast pump parts in his toy box, and sometimes holds them to his chest and pretends to pump his milk!
