I used a nipple shield because my kid had issues initially finding my nipple. The lactation consultant said if I didn’t stop using them by a certain time, he would never latch without them. That was a lie. Also, hospital grade pumps are bullshit torture devices.

My babe had no issue with latching, 30 seconds after birth she was on there. I was lucky, no pain at all. I followed all the “rules” and still couldn’t produce enough milk by the time she was 2 months old. I drank Guinness, liquorice tea, I power pumped and got so caught up I missed my baby. I remember the relief I Read more

It’s me! I am my mom’s favorite baby because I was born VERY hungry and latched on immediately. Although my little sister popped out after like 45 min of labor so there’s competition. But then later in life I had a brief career studying breastfeeding and learned it’s SO HARD. There’s a good quote I’ll never find again Read more

My wife was a labor/delivery nurse for 3 years before we had out first kid. Part of her job was helping new mothers with lactation and she still struggled for the first few weeks and wasn’t able to produce nearly as long as she wanted to.

Gah! talk about inspiring post-partum depression. The women I’ve know who had trouble breastfeeding felt like utter failures.

Sleep when the baby sleep is the biggest piece of shit advice. I think it is more common knowledge now that women have trouble breast feeding. There are lactation consultants at hospitals and available for house calls, but the f*** exhaustion. It’s like no I can’t sleep when the baby sleep because that is when I get Read more

Same. My own mother who had issues with breastfeeding after all 3 of her pregnancies is pressuring me to breastfeed with my first -- like I’ll try it, but if we’re having a bad time, then it;s pump time, and if that sucks, baby is gonna be formula fed and fine. There’s no reason for anyone to pass this pressure down, Read more

Yeah, at 38 you are not going to have a cricket team.  Which is fine, and indeed, she said the opposite. 🙄

The reporting on this all over the internet is driving me insane, for this reason She said nothing of the sort, as you pointed out. I mean, it’s not like it’s a slow news day, there is plenty to report on, so I’m mystified as to why places are trying to make something out of this.

It doesn't matter who your mom shacks up with.  If you're white, you're white.

I am literally un-greying you so you can explain your statement that she was brought up in a Latinx community. Please provide details and sources for your statement.

I’m secretly old, and do remember when Prince Charles was considered both racy and gorgeous (it’s true) and the most eligible bachelor on the planet, with Pierre Eliot Trudeau arguably a close second. My father grew up in Wales, and thus we were solemnly gathered ‘round the black-and-white family TV set for the Read more
