WARNING: IN THIS POST I TALK ABOUT BOOBS. IF YOU DON’T WANT TO READ ABOUT (MY) BOOBS, THEN STOP HERE!
up until now, s and i have had a great breastfeeding relationship. with only a few blips in the early weeks, i thought that it would be smooth sailing forever.
somehow my boobs have turned into excruciatingly painful, gigantic balloons. thankfully it’s nothing serious, just the result of a few cranky feeds with bad latches, but it makes for a really unpleasant experience for both s and myself. over the last few days, i’ve been struggling with the idea of getting help, pumping, and the possibility of having to stop forever.
then i found nipple shields. these things should be called nipple GOLD. they are amazing. i can’t imagine feeding without them! s has no problem latching with these and my sore nips (ew, i told myself i’d never say that!) have time to heal. i may never take them off.
thank you, boob gods!
next time, more on boobs. stay tuned. you know you’re excited.
