We've had such a chilly spring that I've amazingly been able to avoid this so far - but it's finally getting hot here so now I have to deal with this. The nursing bras I have are really thin, basically it's almost like not even wearing a bra. I can't get anything really different, though, because I am so prone to clogged milk ducts, BUT Holy Nipples!!! :eek: I don't want to wear breast pads because they are so lumpy, but not really sure what my alternatives are. Ideas?
Also, I attempted to wear a dress for the first time today. Epic Fail. In order to nurse, I had to unzip myself in the back and then pull half the dress down, completely exposing myself (I was in our van), only to have each boy (in turn) nurse for maybe 30 seconds into a let down and then suddenly and violently push away from me with both of their little arms, resulting in getting themselves sprayed in the face with milk and then getting milk everywhere and then refusing to latch on again. Sigh. Oh how I loathe nursing in public! They get SO distracted and then just refuse to nurse. They're also getting very difficult to nurse at home when anything at all is going on. Please tell me I'm not alone. I feel like the only good nursing sessions we have now are before/after sleeps and in the middle of the night. I am convinced Brian gets at least half of his daily calories between midnight and 5am. :roll: Any tips for NIP? I can't use a cover or anything because I'm already using both arms to wrestle them . lol
There was something else, too, but I can't remember now... may come back and edit if it comes to me.
