Or your 8-year-old knows how to reassemble the bloody thing better than you do!

planet 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!

...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.

Gotta admit, Mommy in a Can would be an awesome formula brand name.

3lilchunklins 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.

: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

farmermomma Good plan to not nurse from a memis. ;-)

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".

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!"

cynthiamoon 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.

skycheattraffic 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.

farmermomma You can drive a hayride tractor while breast feeding.

This is a fabulous list!

 

You have no trouble using the "I'm breastfeeding" excuse whenever you want Desired Food Item.

 

(This one is LDS faith specific):  One of your main reasons for your goal of extended nursing is because you find the nursing garment top the nicest-looking.

 

When playing with your baby on your tummy, she twists over and latches on over your shirt.

 

When coming across an ailment fixed with milk, you whip your shirt down and go straight to the  source.

 

You envy women who do crazy things while nursing.  (I have a friend who did home remodeling including ladders)

pokeyac When your power goes out and you are more concerned about your breastmilk thawing out than all of your other food.

Harebell When you keep on forgetting to take along snacks.

When you're wondering whether it's okay to refuse to nurse a lego man.
11-04-2013 05:42 PM
AUvetmom My 2 yo puts the pump on his belly too! I don't have the heart to tell him he won't be able to nurse his kiddos.

When your toddler has a meltdown shouting "boob! Boob!" in public because he was asked to wait to nurse.

When your boobs are so big they practically need their own zipcode.
