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.

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.

..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!

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!"

Mama to DD : (7/23/03) & DS : (10/27/06) married to DH 7/20/01
and yet 90% more mainstream than the rest of MDC

...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

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!)

I've got three monkeys jumping on the bed!!

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
