2 Under The Influence
Any mother who has breastfed her baby until her or she were satiated knows this face, and this sentiment. There's a reason why it's affectionately called "milk drunk."
3 Juice or Milk?
When your kid can't decide on milk or juice, why can't they have both? This may not be the most comfortable for you, but there are def some moms who have been there and done that.
Sometimes the most ridiculous headlines around breastfeeding make their way into the news. The story of a
woman getting banned from Victoria's Secret for breastfeeding is unfortunately true, according to Today. Good thing there are reliable outlets like Saturday Night Live to get to those hard-hitting facts out there. *Eye-roll* 5 Did You Know?
Just in case you, you know, forgot how to nurse your own child. Here is a very helpful — and accurate — one-step instruction manual.
Save a tree and breastfeed (if you can). Sure
nursing is great for your baby, but it's also great for your wallet evidently, and anyone who has had to spend money on formula can attest to this. 7 Time To Cover Up - NOT
Haters gonna hate, but don't let that ruin your day. Honestly, you're probably going to receive a lot of unsolicited advice now that you're a mom, but you can rest easy knowing you're doing everything right - just ask your babe.
You've probably asked yourself this question a log during your adolescent and adult years. Apparently this dilemma starts at birth. But really — what
do you do with your hands? 9 Favorite Meal
When your baby is hungry, what else could they possibly be craving? Especially if it's the only thing they've ever had since the day they were born.
10 They are Everywhere
Kids who are breastfeeding must love boobs, and that doesn't just mean just your boobs — all boobs. They must feel like they're at an all-you-can-eat buffet sometimes, even though we all know it doesn't work that way.
11 Hung Over
Breastfeeding moms know all too well the "hungover" look their infant gives them after they've chugged an impressive amount of milk. Funnily enough, it probably looks quite similar to your own hungover face.
12 Drink of Choice
You have to admit, this riff on those cheesy beer commercials is pretty funny — and downright adorable.
You know that feeling when you're essentially afraid to move because you're baby is asleep? Yea, getting stuck in an uncomfortable position with a sleeping baby in your arms is even more inconvenient.
14 From There?
Do you think if your little one knew what boobs were they would still want to drink from them? Thank goodness we catch them while they are young.
15 Waiting To Finish
When the breastfeeding session feels like
forever, you have this meme to get you through it. Seriously, aren't their stomachs only supposed to be the size of a ping pong ball? 16 New Flavors
You know how you always know when fall is approaching when Starbucks starts rolling out their pumpkin spice flavored lattes? Well, apparently your baby does, too.
17 Flat Milk
While some babies have no problem toggling from breastmilk to formula without any problem, other babies are less enthusiastic about the transition. Here's what just might be going through their tiny little brains if they appear to be more amped about the formula in the bottle than the milk in your breast.
18 Milk Time
This meme is so relatable to all nursing mamas out there. It definitely feels like you're on Baby's sh*t list when they're screaming of hunger.
19 Ready to Rumble
If you've hurried over to your crying baby, basically ripping it off on the way to them, you might look at this photo and think,
it me. Well, you're definitely no the only one. 20 Wasting Product
Every pumping mom knows that spilt milk is 100 percent something to cry about, so don't be shy about using those nursing bra liners for your own tears.
21 Special Boobs
There's always that breastfed baby (aka every breastfed baby) that will reach for any woman's breasts, hoping to find milk in there.
22 Fountain Of Youth
On some days, the milk just seems to be out of control, and they look a little bit like this. You know, when you wake up, take a shower, hear a baby cry... or just simply stand there.
Some moms are able to power through those teething waves (bless them), but for those of you who are curious, here's what it can honestly feel like. Not all babies are biters, but you'll eventually find out if yours is or not.
24 Bite Them
Sometimes, things go awry even if you're a seasoned nursing mama. For example, when your baby is teething, they will bite anything, and I mean
anything, including the boob that feeds them. When they are just bored and testing their grasping skills, you might get a pinch on your breast, upper arm, or belly during a feeding. You just never know. 25 The Right Tools
Sometimes your breasts can feel like a burden. Other times, it's the sharpest, most valuable tool in your kit. Use it while you can, Mama.
26 When It's All Over
The weaning process has begun. You may feel ready, but it's possible your little one won't be as happy or accepting of the situation.
