Not sure about you guys, but I’m really glad to live in the digital age. I love me some online shopping, social media, and access to countless moms groups and platforms where we can all discuss the many ways we mess up at this whole motherhood thing. And when it comes to breastfeeding, (thanks to what I’ve seen online) I know there are so manymistakes that breastfeeding moms make. I’m not talking about the major challenges that can strike down even the most eager or savvy breastfeeding mom (like the medical or personal or logistical ones). I’m talking about the face palm-worthy ones that most of us recognize as somewhat hilarious and clearly of our own doing.
Breastfeeding is a complex dance, but if you’ve ever tried to dance with someone who doesn’t have complete control of their limbs, then you know just how tricky it can be. Add the fact that breastfeeding happens multiple times a day, for days or weeks or months or even years on end, and there’s plenty of room for flubs and fantastic failures. So, take a seat fellow parents (although, make sure you’re not sitting on a pacifier or a blankie or your breast pump) and enjoy the wonder that is these ten breastfeeding fails. Hey, at least we know we're not alone and definitely deserve to cut ourselves some slack, right?
