My Breastfeeding Story (The Good, the Bad, and the Lopsided)
After I gave birth to my little Marshmallow, the whole breastfeeding thing became sorta of a challenge. He wouldn't latch. Then he would only latch to one boob. Then the one boob only produced 2 ounces. The first three months were a blur of feedings, pumping, and leaky breasts. It was kinda awful. He ate every two hours during those months. I felt trapped at home, because by the time I got us packed and ready to go, it was time to eat again. And the little meatball loved to eat.
Once I got the hang of it, and once he got the hang of it, things got better. Breastfeeding became easy! No bottles, no cleaning of the bottles, just throw the baby on your tit and your all set! Plus burning those extra calories from breastfeeding is no joke people. I did not work out at all for the first four months, and dropped 28 pounds, easy peasy!
Mind you, because the one boob never could produce the supply I needed, I only nursed off of one. Yes you read that right. This left me kinda lopsided. I had one gigantic boob, and one small boob. I felt like a breastfeeding freak show. But it was nothing a sports bra couldn't help, and worth it in my eyes. Plus the lopsidedness is temporary.......at least that's what I'm told.
