The Woes Of Breastfeeding No One Warns You About

Agreed that breastisbest and exclusive breastfeeding is something real aspirational for new mommies. However, sometimes breastfeeding takes you by surprise and makes you wanna escape. At least by my experience there have been few things about exclusive breastfeeding I have been depressed about (only at times, but nevertheless!)

1.It takes a LOTTTTT of time.

2.You will have back aches till your ace the posture right.

3.You will feel lonely and isolated when the baby gets fussy.

4.Self doubt and guilt play a dual game with you each day.

5.Sometimes you doubt your motherly-ness.

6.You discuss if you are doing it right with EVERYBODY. You look for some praise.

But finally, you will emerge a winner and these first experiences will make you a better mom. A worthwhile person. And a well enlightened breastfeeding mom.

Well...I literally shouted at the nurses and sister in law at the hospital as they kept saying milk is not coming coming.
When finally it came Anusha had a lot of issue in latching which led to engorged breasts pain and fever and what not. Then started using nipple shield and Anusha was fine.; Many times due to sheer exhaustion I tried to escape bf saying I have fever😀😀.
But now I laugh thinking of that period. I enjoy it now as I now know bf is soo soo beneficial for my baccha.

I feel irritated when everyone keep asking "ro ku rhi h beti, doodh poora ho rha h ya nhi".;
