Of all the things that can be said about breastfeeding, the fact that it requires mother to sit still and (hopefully) relax, is not the the worst. I mean, you've just finished growing and delivering a human, and now you're required to re-attach said human to your body, like, six to eight times a day. I totally understandwhy some moms don’t love everything about it, and why, in turn, some moms who do some weird things while they breastfeed.
After all, we need to stay entertained. We need to stay awake. We need to stay in touch with the fact that we are adult humans, something that’s not always obvious when all that we’re doing is feeding and changing diapers and rocking someone else to sleep. If scrolling through one’s phone and enjoying a gif party on Twitter makes you feel alive and "normal" and capable of staying awake long enough to feed your little then, by all means, scroll away.
If you’re a breastfeeding mom, perhaps the following list of things every breastfeeding mom does will sound familiar. If you’re not a breastfeeding mom, today is your lucky day, as you will have the opportunity to hear all about the weird without actually experiencing it yourself. Yeah, you're welcome. So, enjoy as we go deep inside the breastfeeding mom experience that is as odd as it is wonderful.
