One of the biggest lies moms-to-be are told is how "easy" breastfeeding will be. The truth is, breastfeeding isn't effortless or "natural" for all moms or all babies. I have breastfed three babies to varying degrees of success, and learned firsthand that there's really no way to predict how nursing will go. Or is there? I mean, what if you can tell how your baby will breastfeed, according to their Zodiac sign? I thought it was totally worth exploring, because desperate times call for desperate measures, my friends.
I checked out the website Astrology Zodiac Signs, and was surprised to find that my kids' astrological profiles were pretty spot on when it comes to their temperament, personality, sleep, and yes, their breastfeeding, too. My daughter is a Gemini through and through — especially when it came to breastfeeding. She both hated being left alone (and wanted to be attached to my breast all night long), but also hated being confined, so would spend most nights kicking me in the ribs or face. She hated routines, so she would be hungry every three hours one day, every hour the next, and just when I was would start to think she was finally sleeping through the night without a meal. To this day she still has two distinct personalities.
My oldest son was super particular about his eating routine. He liked to be held in a certain way, and preferred a quiet space to nursing in public, which makes sense for a calm, but obsessive Scorpio. Again, his astrological profile is absolutely accurate. I also learned that my youngest son is an Aquarius, so it makes perfect sense that he is friendly and affectionate, but hates being bored. This was definitely true for his breastfeeding style. He loved to smile up at me and gaze adoringly at me while he nursed, but he also constantly wanted to shift positions.
So, if you are interested in a little insight from the stars about about how your baby will breastfeed, read on. And trust me, when breastfeeding's concerned, every little bit of information helps.
