Breastfeeding is like the most awesome thing ever.
When I gave birth … I vowed that I breastfeed him as much as I can, as long as I can. I did. At first it hurts like hell. Considering that I gave birth.. I thought that I am ready even numb from any other pain.. then came this smallish baby sucking from my breast. It hurt so much that I bleed and it creeps and freaks me out. The nurses, neighbors and my mother seems to be non chalant about the blood. I also have a problem with my right breast. It turned out that I have an extra skin in there (TMI, I know =P). I cant use it cuz im scared he's going to get to eat that muscle,skin and son will choke. WHen he turned one, my baby, that skin fell ff and its too late. He doesnt kow how to suck on that side anymore.
So yes.. we tolled breastfeeding together with one breast and we got by just fine.
It also helped me with the weight.
For 2 years my weight remained the same no matter how much I ate. I am after all sharing it with a guy whose always hungry.
Everytime I have flu I am not worried that hell get it cuz I know my milk is protecting him and when he got sick I know the milk is going to heal him.
I know I am putting to much faith on my milk but my milk always delivers.
2 years is a breeze. I was skyping my mother and she is just WHAT YOUR STILL BREASTFEEDING HIM??????????????? When are you going to wean him???? When hes like 20? Ok she didn't say that last sentence but in my head she did =P
I panicked and like for a week I was able to wean him.. I was even amaze on how easy it is.
And then so many problems started to pop…
I slowly gained weight cuz even when i stopped breastfeeding him.. I am still eating for 2. Needless to say selfies taken photo stopped as I no longer fit those picture squares.
Breast went from a cup c to a non existent size. I am a flat chested fat girl =( I have a hello kitty bralette!
When I get sick.. he gets it and when he gets sick I feel powerless.
Is it wrong to say that I miss breastfeeding?
