why didnt anyone tell me?
I feel like I've been having a lot of "why didn't anyone tell me?" Moments... so I figured I'd share them with you girls! If anyone has had any of these moments please share!
Why didn't anyone tell me to do some research on breastfeeding?
I stupidly assumed the nurses would be able to show me/tell me what to do-wrong! If you plan to bf I highly recommend finding out what a proper latch looks like, know its normal for it to hurt for a free weeks (even with a proper latch). Make an appointment with a lc (my saving grace), and make sure you have lanolin at home.
Why didnt anyone tell me I'd feel icky for so long?
I don't know why I thought I'd feel like my pre-pregnancy self shortly after birth. Ha! I'm 4 weeks pp and things are getting better everyday but I'm still not there....
Why didn't anyone tell me not to buy a crap ton of Mega pads?
I have no idea why I thought I needed so many! Instead I should have purchased a pack of heavy medium and light.
Why didn't anyone tell me how emotional I'd be?
everyone makes jokes about pregnancy makes you emotional but what about after baby? I was a complete mess! No matter how amazing your baby it's hard not to mourn your old life.
Why didn't anyone tell me to have some supplies at home?
Things I had to go purchase: cabbage (it helped my soar nips along with lanolin), stool softener (seriously a life saver! ) and hand Sanitizer for the changing table.
What do you wish someone would have told you?
