Breastfeeding my babies was one of the hardest things I have ever done as a parent. I think it's because there was so much outside of my control. I couldn't control when my babies were hungry or how much breast milk I produced, and I often had no clue if they were still hungry, wanted more, or were simply using me as a pacifier. Breastfeeding is just one of many times when you wish that babies came with a manual, because there were so many things I wish my baby could say to me when I was breastfeeding.
In fact, if my little one was capable of uttering the following, I know I would have benefited (and, well, so would have my boobs):
Personally, I am a bit embarrassed to admit how scared I am to breastfeed my next child, even though this is my third time around and I have done it before. My mind is full of anxiety and "what-ifs." Maybe they will invent a baby translator by then? Probably not. Either way, I know that no matter what and even if get a few things wrong, I will do my best. In the end, that is all we can hope for.
