I have been breastfeeding for over 2 months now! Wow its gone fast. I also had hardly any pain or discomfort. It was a shock to me and I also never had any leaking. I know you might be thinking tmi.. but this is my blog. SOO I will write about my boobs. I wish I had known that it was only a possibility of pain and leaking! I seriously thought that everyone had to go through a HARD time before it got better. I never hit that at all?! I am still kind of waiting. I did hurt the day my milk came in, but it was bearable considering I just gave birth a few days before. I have had a little bit of uncomfterable times when he latches on, but its totally NOTHING like I thought it would be. SO happy about it. I do have 6 pairs of cotton reusable breast pads if anyone needs them. I also have an extra tube of lanolin stuff too that I doubt I will use, and I have some breast shells. I was prepared to breastfeed. I hope to do it till he is 12 months old, maybe I will just start to pump more later. The thing I didnt think about was that I would have to think about what I put on that day and what I was doing if I was going to leave the house how easy is if for me to pull out my boob. HA! I dress for easy access. I just got three shirts today and a button up sweater to make it easier when we are out. Bonus for me they were on sale for $1 at the PX. Three shirts the same for $3. Wahoo. OK well Just wanted to make a short post about how surprised I am at how breastfeeding has been going. I think I was so scared and prepared for the worst that it just couldn't be as bad as I was thinking.
