I feel for her...

a I was reading this post by my blog friend, Mommy from the Midwest. Here is one of her pictures she has on her post...

Now, if this doesn't make you want to click the link above...I don't think anything will.

Now, I chose not to breastfeed, but I do feel for her. Once my milk came in with my babies, my breasts became so engorged that I could lower my chin and touch them. Ummm...so NOT normal, I felt like a big boobed freak.

That makes me hurt. Oh my Lord.

Someone's been having a little too much fun with the Photoshop after a few trips to the eggnog bowl... ;-)

Having "engorged" breasts isn't the world's worst problem - some women will kill to have just a portion of that! I figure that, surgically speaking, it's easier to reduce than to enlarge.

But then again, I am a man...

;-) Happy New Year!

Don..Having engorged breasts were not fun. You feel tremendous pain because your breasts are hard, heavy, tight, and sensitive to touch. So, men may like to look at them, but there is NO touching. To help with the pain, you are told to wear your bra at all times at the tightest you can stand it. The resistance helps, and it they have support, they do not lag. Switch off with hot and cold packs and some women use cabbage leaves, i did not.

The real fun, for me anyway, is when your milk finally comes in and starts to leak. Whenever you hear a baby cry, even if it isn't yours, your brain says, "baby needs milk". OMG - I loved being pregnant, but I think my body had the hardest time adjusting to all the after stuff. *sigh*

Just be glad you are a man.

Thanks for the reminder that I do not, under any circumstances, want to breastfeed ever again!

I had to go see....wow, those are some big boobies!

Having been small chested my whole life, and only made it to a C cup while breastfeeding...I guess I feel a bit relieved to see that kind extreme. Those suckers must be heavy.
