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 your nursing pads are all over the house.

when you eat like a lumberjack but lose weight anyway.

when you are ravenously hungry all the time.

when you feel sorry for ff babies. yuck.

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.)

Yeah! Or when you're sitting on the toilet!

DH taught DD to smack her lips when she finds something yummy, so sometimes when she's hungry DD will slide up to me and start smacking! I feel like an ibex being hunted by a lion!

These are cracking me up, especially the "sacked out with the rack out"! DS is such a boob man, he gets the biggest grin on his face when I whip dinner, breakfast, snack out. And the smile that he gives me 15 minutes later, with milk dripping down his check, is priceless.

Yeah, we always used the term "milk drunk" for my son when he would nurse. He wouldn't nurse until 4 weeks old when he finally figured it out one day. I wish I had a picture of him lying back all relaxed in my lap, arms over his head. So cute! I never saw him that relaxed after a bottle. He's very much a comfort nurser. It made me sooooo happy after all the struggle in the beginning!!

Married to wonderful DH 10 yrs DS 9yrs self-weaned @ 3 1/2 yrs  TTC 3 yrs got preg 4 months after HSG with DS 4yrs self-weaned at 3 1/2 yrs  Hope to have more little ones but have secondary infertility issues so we'll just have to see what the future brings Enjoying homeschooling and farming

You know when your 3yo trys to spray other people with her milk!

A week or so ago I was nursing my 11mo and my three year old was near by and I (please don't think I'm gross) sprayed her with my milk. She thought it was freaking hillarious as did my 7yo and 5yo. Well a few days later my dh called me into the other room with an extremely puzzled look on his face. My 3yo had her shirt off (not unusual) and was pinching her nipple and going ssssssssssssssssssss at him. She was pretending to spray him with milk like I did to her. I almost passed out laughing my dh was not as amused.

my DS does that...so adorable I love to just hold him and look at him after he eats - his little cheeks all puffed out and the most content look ever!

LOL. My 3 year old sneaks up and squeezes me to get me to squirt at others. Not really comfortable!
