Breastfeeding Support and Humor for New Moms

It’s May, so we are still celebrating mothers everywhere! We hope you had a lovely Mother’s Day. My 5 year old ran into my room at 6 a.m. to be the first to wish me Happy Mother’s Day, and on this day, it was a beautiful wake up call.

For all you mothers out there, you know motherhood is the most rewarding and exhausting job in the world. You know what a miracle each and every child is. You know the worries and prayers that we pray hourly for our children. You know that no matter what you do, they will continue to grow up. You know that if you have boys, your most likely going to get peed on. And, you know that breastfeeding is amazing and a ‘whole new world’ in and of itself.

For all of you who are about to become a mother, you’ll see…

or you can read an honest opinion of it here…

breastfeeding
written and produced by Jessica, Jenna and Jodi…the sisters of j. sorelle.

9 months of nourishing and painful hours of pushing,
but wait the sacrifices to your body have just begun…now its time to breastfeed your little one.

it’s another miracle of what our female bodies is capable of,
in addition to nurturing, strength and unconditional love!

though it can be beautiful and amazing, there are some things we must say,
there’s some joys and pains to it at the end of the day.

you will walk around the house topless and full of milk,
and not like the steamy nights of your honeymoon draped in silk.

when you pump, the thought of a cow may pop into your mind,
just stop yourself…remember…be kind.

nursing pads are a necessity if you are a leaker
yes, there are times, you may feel like the neighbors sprinkler.

in the next months/year or so your boobs will be free,
but expect that they may sag down to your knee.

i never knew something that caused me much pleasure would one day cause me pain,
but, as a mom, there is simply to time to be vain.

 if it’s too hard to do, don’t feel guilty about stopping one bit,
in fact, a happier you is a much better fit.

please remember to give yourself a break,
because as a mom you will give more than you take.

try to stick with it for several months – they say the lucky number is 3,
just remember, your milk is not only healthy, but it’s FREE

i promise the toe curling pain will soon begin to fade,
and hopefully it will be the best decision you’ve made.

it’s bonding time only you and your baby can share,
and time alone with your baby on your lap soon will be rare.

we do it all because having a child means to love like no other.
for your about to experience the pure joy of being a mother.
