Flipping hell i just googled it.some crazy side effects.i even read that it should not be taken by women who have had an abortion, a stillbirth or who never breastfed as it could be FATAL!!!be careful girl!!!
On a lighter note happy belated birthday wishes to Ceola, hope you had a lovely day.

Yeah it really freaked me out hun, I'm thinking of just roughing it out - eventually it'll dry up right? I'm still not engorged & haven't felt that heavy full feeling since I pumped the 2oz on Monday.
Ah thanks, she's so grown up looking & too cute, we're having her party on Saturday - obv she's oblivious but we're like two kids counting the sleeps till the weekend ha! How's Noah? Must be his bday soon too?

Just thought I'd update as I think the milk is finally on its way out :) woke up to softer boobs this morning, emotions seem to be stabilising too & I am starting to feel like I'm getting back to 'normal' - I know tons of bf mammies prob felt like they were 'back to normal' ages ago, but for me I guess the bf hormones affected me a lil more. Looking back I really think I had a touch of depression/anxiety etc, only sorry I didn't check it out.

Also, just wanted to say (cause it was something I worried about pre baby) - my boobs definitely are NOT ruined by the bf experience - I was a little scared having read so much online elsewhere about having flat/no boobs after bf but I can honestly say, for me, I haven't found that so far. I'm sure they'll prob change a bit more, but maybe the gradual weaning had helped me retain shape/tone?
I do have one or two white stretch marks but I had them from pregnancy anyway and while I can honestly say they aren't exactly the same as they were before, I'm really not disappointed - I think I'd prepared myself for two teabags hanging off a nail lol
They are defo softer & less perky but with a bra on there's little to no diff.
Just wanted to post that for anyone else wondering - the internet is full of all the bad stuff and very little of positives!

I think your boobs are less perky after pregnancy anyways so I doubt it is the affect of bf. I would definitely be if I thought mine would be smaller after. My only joy is that they have no got any bigger so far in my first trimester. As you said with the right supportive bra all problems will be solved. I have always been a firm ( excuse the pun) in having the right supportive bra no matter what size you are and if you have had a baby or not.

I want to bf. I admire people who do.

I've gone from 36b-c to 38D! Never really had boobs and now I have to get good bras etc! I definitely got bigger in the 1st tri purple. How are you doing?

Feeding away here. I'm gonna go into holles st later to the lactation consultant support morning. I'd love to know if we're ever gonna get off the nipple sheilds. Contacted a private LC yesterday and the consultation is 90e. I'd like to go to my local bf support group but it seems to be a room full of bfing mum's with no professional guidance. Maybe later on.
Jez I hope she leaves some for the lc to assess!
I hope to be as successful as you honeybee! It's what they are there for and what our tiny infants need.

Thanks Hun - I don't think I'd ever say it's been easy but it's been worth it. Now that I'm a little stronger emotionally I'm starting to see the benefits of her being weaned - when she naps now I can actually eat lunch or exercise - before I'd spend 20/25 mins pumping/freezing milk so that by the time I then made lunch she'd wake normally as I sat down to eat!!

Purplebiz, I admired people who did too before I did it & having done it and had the ups and downs I still do - if anything I marvel at women who do 12+ months, half my battle as dd got older was keeping her still long enough/teaching her not to pinch/bite, I don't know how mammies of older toddlers do it. It's a very personal choice but for me, 12 months seemed 'time'.
All I'd advise Hun is not to pressure yourself too much, having seen me bf my BF is now saying she might try it if she has kids down the line, but as I keep saying to her its easy to visit and see a happy hungry baby latch & feed easily and think 'oh bf looks great, I'm definitely going to do it' as opposed to having latch problems, screaming newborn & exhausted mammy and I think if you put too much pressure on yourself it can be very stressful. At the start I said I'd try & see how it went and although I did have my issues, thankfully I got past them. If you do go for it, just try relax & take all the help you can get - like daddy brining you snacks and drinks while you do the long newborn feeds - they do get shorter but the initial ones are slow as they are so small. . . Aw just remembering my lil madam when she was all new & squishy :cry:
Lil madam will be awake shortly terrorising the place and I won't feel so melancholy lol!!!
