Although I very much enjoy and appreciate that I have to sustain my baby. I do not find breastfeeding to be the glorious fix-all that the author makes it out to be.
I got my period back when my daughter was only 10 weeks old.
I lost some weight right after she was born, but I’ve been working out since then and am still 10 lbs. more than my pre-baby weight.
I do not eat whatever strikes my fancy, but rather stick to (mostly) healthy choices since I want my baby to be receiving optimal nutrition.
My doctor was very clear with me that BFing is NOT birth control, and I am therefore taking my pill religiously to prevent unwanted pregnancy.
The supposed porn-star boobs were nice for a bit, until I realized that I needed a new wardrobe to accommodate my new size.
This being said, I do not resent Breastfeeding at all- in fact, I love it. I enjoy being forced to sit down and spend time with my precious one.
I love knowing that no matter how tired and terrible I might feel, I’m always able to put aside my selfish tendencies and take care of my little one.
