    Default 10 (mildly shallow) reasons to breastfeed

    How scary Boobycino! No wonder you rushed out without grabbing anything!

    Is she ok now?

    All great points from me except I put on weight while BF. By the time DD2 was 11 months old I was being asked if I was pregnant again

    woah! how scary!! This morning ds seemed to be gagging on something but I wasn't sure and he has 6 teeth coming in, so figured it was that causing his funny faces. Then he started dry retching and turning red and I was freaking out, then he did a massive retching vomit and a tiny bit of plastic came out, you could hardly see it in the mucus vomit! That was scary enough for me :/ Let alone a trip to the hospital! Glad she's ok!

    Breastfeeding and losing weight so does not happen for me. I dropped weight after I stopped feeding DD, but while feeding DD2 and now with DS I have to be super careful to drop even the tiniest amounts each week. It is so depressing.

    I never went past my pre-pregnancy weight while breastfeeding either, not even tandem feeding and expressing 1L a day LOL!

    She's fine now. Though now we are freaked out about every tiny thing on the floor and every cough or hiccup we both startle and jump. Ahhh baby.

    But boob is so so handy.

    Oh and "can't move. Breastfeeding" is the best excuse for laziness. Lol. But if I actually wanted to I can bf in a carrier and shop at the same time. But if it suits me I can be all "sorry can't get up"

    And I definitely excuse myself from social situations to bf and check fb.
