One-kid envy, breastfeeding struggles, my fascinating two-year-old, and Sesame Street overdoses. Parenting potpourri!
Lately, I’ve come across some great moms who feel incredible guilt when breastfeeding just doesn’t work out for them. They tried — and tried hard — so the judgment needs to stop.
We call Peanut’s nighttime routine The Four Bs: Bath, Book, Boob, and Bed. Very soon, we’ll have to drop a B.
Show me the woman who actually enjoys pumping, and I’ll call her a total weirdo. But I don’t hate my pump — at least not the way many other women do.
My expectations of breastfeeding were way off base. I underestimated how hard it would be, especially at first. This is my warning to the mothers-to-be: it sure ain’t easy.
Breastfeeding isn’t as easy as some bitches make it look. Kidding aside, it is harder than it seems, and feelings toward it can be complicated.
