My milk came in a few days ago, and that whole ‘engorgement’ thing is not a joke. Also not a joke is that MY BOOBS LEAK. I am forever having to wear those little nursing pads under my nursing bra (and btw I prefer bras with flaps that open in the front as opposed to the ones that you just tug aside for convenience, but, the tug ones are more comfortable).
The other night I fell asleep in bed without a bra on and made such a mess that Chris had wash the sheets the next morning. I’ve squirted Maia across the face, made a mess of her hair, and filled her mouth to overflowing so she coughs milk back all over me. I’ve soaked through nipple pads and left a sad little nipple teardrop dampening my shirt.
At least now I know to pack the nipple pads and a spare nursing bra in my diaper bag when we leave the house!
