Earlier this month, I went on a play date. It was great. My girls had little ones their age to play and mingle with.
While I was sitting around with the other mommies with babies, it came to feeding time.
Mommies left and right of me starting busting out the boobies.
A little piece of me felt a little jealousy towards the breastfeeding moms.
I wish I could just bust out the boob. I wouldn’t have to carry around an extra bag with bottles, liners, water and formula.
Oh the convenience!!
It made me wish my body cooperated better. I did what I could, for both my girls, to try to produce more. My breasts just didn’t cooperate. I guess it happens to some women, me included.
When picturing motherhood, I always thought I’d be breastfeeding for at least 6months to a year. All my cousins were great producers of milk. I thought I would be too.
My daughters thrived on formula. K is growing leaps and bounds on formula. I have no complaints.
Seeing others so easily breastfeed does spark a bit of disappointment in myself and a little jealousy.
But, I know I’m doing the best for my children. And I’m definitely not the only mother that has gone through this and has had these same feelings.
