    Hello ladies :D I love to breastfeed and for me it doesnt matter if im tired or anything, but I dont think any man understands how tiring it is. My DH has been fantastic with everything, but I dont think he understands how much energy I am putting into it :? Anyways, I just wanted to ask for some support from bf mums, so my DH understands I am not the only one :oops:

    I have explained to my DH that it is exhasuting and sounds stupid you are sitting there .he knows he will never know what it feels like but understands
    One lady at jojingles said to me the other day her daughter was down to just her night supper feed and was poorly and reverted to wanting milk again which she gave and said she had forgotten how tiring it is..i tell A these stories so he may get it on some level.

    God yeah... its soooo tiring sometimes...


    Especialy when youve been up numerous times in the night, and the feeds just carry on throughout the day too!



    It is sooo worthwhile, and i totally agree, i love the fact im feeding my princess myself..

    But yeah men *screams* they have no idea..


    Id love for a man to go thru the periods...pregnancy....birth....looking after and feeding baby...


    They'd see us women for the fooking MIRACLES we are :D
