Re: What no one tells you about breastfeeding

Something I NEVER see people mention in threads like this....Breastfeeding causes uterine contractions. It's great bc mom heals faster...it sucks because those contractions can be pretty intense and with each subsequent baby they can get more intense. With my last lo (#3, 8 weeks old) the contractions during the first week or so while nursing were almost as bad as when I was in labor. So bad that I would cry the whole time we were nursing and I wanted to quit sooo bad!
