Re: I Feel like a milk cow

Yep, I've worn a nice hole in the couch in the month I've been nursing. God I'm really starting to hate this couch.....


Mommy to a miracle baby, Louise.

I can relate, my daughter is five weeks and in the beginning ALL she did was nurse. It's completely normal! She nurses a ton still but it's improved from the very early days.

I know it may not feel like it but it does get better! Hang in there!

My son nursed every waking moment until he was 2 months old. It WILL pass. Hang in there mama. One day you'll look back and this time will seem like the blink of an eye.

Re: I Feel like a milk cow

It will get SOOO much better before you even know it. He and your breasts will both get more efficient. My girl is three months and I spent the first month on the sofa probably 10 hours a day. Now she'll finish a feeding in 10 to 30 minutes and she eats about 9 times a day. WAAAAY better. For the time being, keep yourself sane by propping a book on a chair in front of you or use a laptop and watch a movie.

Totally normal. I have crowned myself the 'Dairy Queen". Make sure to have snacks, water and a good book handy. It does get better.
