Breastfeeding in public

Not to mention, breastfeeding is really hard!  Noone tells you that you've got to learn latch technique, and positions, and what a newborn swallowing sounds like, and what proper sucking looks like, and ways to keep the tiny, flailing arms out of the way... I don't judge ANY woman for throwing in the towel.

So much it is, that people shouldn't judge for this. I was formula-fed. That may be why I'm not married to a gal with immense breasts. Rolleyes  Great story- one of my wife's friend's daughter had a baby recently. She went into labor and before the husband could get her and the gear into the car, she had the baby boy in the bathroom (3rd child- be warned!), with him barely catching him from falling on the floor. She has ample breasts, but that boy nurses both sides and then wants a bottle to boot, just like my eldest. And then he fills a diaper before she can finish changing him! Big Grin  I'm half afraid of what's going to happen when my spawn finally reproduces, and I get to baby sit.

This is my nightmare.

OMG...my parents had TWO grey Chevy Celebrities in succession during my childhood. I learned to drive on the second (newer) one. We gave the older one to my high school bf and he eventually demolished the frame going too fast over a bump in the road, but it never quit ruining. The damn engine outlasted the body.

Well, you know what labor feels like by now, so if it gets hairy, just lie down on the floor wherever you are. Any damage caused to said flooring will be orders of magnitude less than what could happen to your baby if it hit the floor head first. Sad I think I recall you might be trying again, eventually; this is actually why I posted. :yes:
