Oh, thank you, you made me laugh so hard, I started to cry, cry out, cry loud and cry so deeply, that my husband wondered if I would be okay. Yes, I'm okay, if being exhausted, sleep deprived, overwhelmed and sore as all hell, is okay. I'm on my third nurser, and hell, it has its challenges, even with all the lessons learned with my previous two. I've just never nursed and had two other young children at the same time. Oh, I'd love the laundry league!
Thank you so much for your honesty!
It was the laugh and cry I needed!

Very late to the party here, but I just clicked over from Her Bad Mother having been delighted to find one other person referencing Sarah Blaffer Hrdy on mommy blogs.

I love this.

Thank you.

You rock. Breastfeeding is hard. Plus I had my baby at the beginning of several intense heat waves, and my visiting mother told me I should really wear a shirt, please. !!! In my own apartment!! In the first month!! And my husband threatened to buy formula every time the baby cried and I wasn't nursing it. We all survived. What was my point? I don't have one. I just want some of the tribe to visit when I have my next baby. Please.

My mama was a La Leche League leader before it was cool. If she could figure out how to navigate the internet, I'd send this to her. My intense appreciation for this post is only compounded by the comment about lactators being" like dictators but with breasts instead of dicks." So beautiful I might cry...

2008-04-03T11:44:00.000-04:00

I read as much as I could about breast feeding thinking this is going to be a breeze.... along came little one and the first time is was awsome, everytime after that hurt so bad. Eveyone at the hospital kept telling me "If it hurts your doing it wrong" and I felt like I didn't know what the f*ck I was doing and I had to have been doing it all wrong because everything I read said that it shouldn't hurt. And then I talked to friends who had children and realized it was totally normal. Have these people ever had children? Seriously, the words they say in the books are "it may be a little uncomfortable at first" How about just saying "It F*cking hurts worse than giving birth!!

Hi-freaking-larious! Thank you! Wonderful, wonderful. Yes, where exactly is all that sisterhood? I'm gonna have to add you to my blogroll now. :)

2007-01-11T00:33:00.000-05:00

Love it, love it.
I came up with a theory when I started nursing my first child:
Breastfeeding is great;if you don't mind sticking your nipple in a bear trap!
It's very cool to hear (or see) so many others give voice to what I think a lot of women just try to deal with in silence.
I'm nursing a seven week old baby--my fourth. Oddly, I don't think it actually feels any better, it's just that my pain threshold has improved! On the other hand, I'm getting closer to my lifelong goal of being able to fling one boob over my shoulder to get it out of my way. In other words, gravity will prevail, and those little adorable siphons will help!
BTW, love the comparison with the hammer...maybe I could whack my hubby with one everytime I wake up to feed the siphon...not necessarily on the thumb...just whatever is handy...

What a wonderful post :)

Breast feeding sure was a very special time for me and my children. What an incredible bonding experience!

Haven't had a kid on my boob in over a decade and I had sympathy pains just reading that. Where oh where was the internet when I was dealing with these issues?

Thank you, you are the BOMB.

2006-10-01T12:22:00.000-04:00

OMG, I could have written this post, if only I were as clever and funny as you! I am so sore that I can't hug anyone. I can't hold my baby against my chest. Heck, I can hardly stand to shower. All people can do to help is say, "Hang in there, it gets better!" I need to print this out and read it every day.... when that crick in my neck goes away.

2006-09-22T23:07:00.000-04:00

Wow, after all the wonderful comments, what's left to say. Fabulous writing - at certain points I almost felt like I was watching this on film it was descriptive! I'll be sure to check out your blog more often after reading this.
Cabbage leaves. Ha! If I never see them again in my life or in my bra, it will be too soon.

2006-09-21T06:21:00.000-04:00

Oh my God.

Please be my friend.

I can so relate to this post...except that I was a lousy breastfeeder. Even with prescription drugs, lacation consultants, etc I couldn't do it.

And I felt like such a broken loser.

2006-09-19T16:13:00.000-04:00

This is the greatest piece of writing on lactivity and lactivation and lactivism that I HAVE EVER READ.

Full stop.

I'll add this, though: I breastfeed WonderBaby for eight months. The first month and a half was brutal. The latter six and a half months were mostly fine. Sometimes I even basked in the glow of lacternal happiness. But when it was done, after I got over the surprise? I was happy. Relieved. My boobs were mine again, baby. Somewhat diminished, but still. MINE.

This post is indeed a public service.

I'm here bowing down to you. This post rocks...

Now I am standing up straight, because my recently mutilated boobs hurt when I bend over and the rings hang down.

Not quite the same as having a Hoover chew on them, but I do feel your pain.

2006-09-16T19:30:00.000-04:00

Hilarious.

Mine are both exclusively bottle-fed. They're adopted, but by the time I found out that was no longer a valid excuse for not breastfeeding, it was kind of too late.

I just found out, though, that being MALE is no longer a valid excuse, either.



Amen!and teehee

2006-09-16T13:17:00.000-04:00

Amen!

2006-09-16T12:05:00.000-04:00

Well, can I say that I feel your pain? Whew. A week ago today I was in labor and today I am nursing both a one week old and some really sore nipples. Everytime he latches on to the right side, I wince and curl my toes the exact same way. And every time my husband looks at me and says "what's wrong?" Ahh... It fucking hurts. That's what is wrong!

Great post and even though I live very close to you, I am not going to come hunt you down with my cans of similac wrapped in a nylon stocking for a good whooping. Gotta do what you gotta do.

2006-09-16T01:09:00.000-04:00

10 day old baby girl here. Taking first internet break in many days. See your post. Now I feel not so alone in my crazy 3 hour cycle - 1 hour at the boobs (to get maybe 25 minutes of actual sucking), 1/4 hour of pumping to boost supply, another 15-20 minutes for burping/changing/rocking, and then about an hour to sleep before the cycle starts over again. Oh and yes, the cracked and bloody nipples. Good times, good times.

I told my husband that to truly understand what it was like, I would get to wake him for 2 hours every 3, and hit him on the thumb with a hammer for those two hours. He, however, isn't down with trying that little experiment for some reason.

And they do this feeding every 2-3 hour thing for HOW many months??

But ...... I love her so much it turns my insides out. :)

2006-09-15T09:16:00.000-04:00

Sis,

Oh God!

I thought I had those memories buried so deep that a year's worth of sessions on an expensive leather couch couldn't even bring them out.

I mean...

I loved breastfeeding too!

Call mom. I'm sure she has some wacky Lithuanian home remedy for it. Like maybe a scoop of warm mashed potatoes on each booby. Or flitch.

Mmmmmm....flitch.

God/dess be with you on this one.

PS - my word verification is jyjjbbha which is what I distinctly remember saying when the little babs would latch on.
"Jyjjbbha!!!!!! OWWW!"

Is it possible for boobs to hurt in solidarity with other boobs?

Man-o-man there is much for me to learn ... Joze, hilarious as always. :)

2006-09-14T22:51:00.000-04:00

Josette, babe, I have been avoiding commenting to you.

Now I'll be well buried and it's probably not even worth the pain it brings me to discuss breastfeeding.

But I will because of course I lurve you.

HA! Effing boobs. Breastfeeding. BAH! If I ever have another adorable siphon (BTW, yours is too precious) I will so bottle and formula feed. And I'mkicking Persistence off the boob ummm any day now. Really.

Hey didn't I slip some Lansinoh in with the Pez and foot cream? If not, wooh, sorry. Big oversight.

Hang in there. You'll recuperate just in time for the 8 week growth spurt. Wait, I meant to be supportive.

Listen, I hear ya sistah. I'm dealing with the two year growth spurt BWAHAHAHAHA.

Delurking to say that I am currently experiencing let down after reading your post...while I anxiously await another extended overnight visit at my all you can eat breasturant. I should be sleeping. Instead I watch my own siphon sleep...

2006-09-14T22:24:00.000-04:00

How much do I love you? How much? So much that if I could, I would breastfeed those children for you.

Yes, okay so I am exaggerating a wee bit. But boy, do I love you.
