I am a big believer of breast is best and it is the best thing for your baby for the first few months in life but bloody helll no one warned me what I was in for with it! DEMAND DEMAND DEMAND, unlike formula feeding you cant schedule feeds so that means mummy is on stand by 24/7 sometimes every 15, 20 , 30 minutes other times 1 or 2 hours but my little girl would not go any longer than 2 hours without having the boob! I had plugged ducts,mastitis and two big circles on all my tops from leakage for the first 6 weeks. AND WHYY is it so hard to find breastfeeding friendly cafes or restaurants. I ended up feeding my baby in costa toilets because they had no where for me to breastfeed and I did not feel comfortable in public. Another time I asked a shop if there was anywhere I could feed my baby and they take me to the staff room which was full and said ” the kettle is just there , help yourself” Well this said it all for me she thought I ment bottle feed and this room was full with men and I was not going to whip my boob out so off I went into another toilet to feed my baby. This needs to be changed there needs to be more breastfeeding rooms nothing special just a small room with a chair in thats all we want to feed our babies. My little girl is 7 months old now and we have weaned off the boob for mummy’s sanity. MUMMY NEEDS A BREAK! what did you mummies find the hardest about breastfeeding, or did you formula feed?
