WHAT THEY DON’T TELL YOU ABOUT BREASTFEEDING! Things I Didn’t Know!

If you ever wonder what your
mom does to in the morning when she
can’t sleep she makes videos on
breastfeeding and post into the internet
for everyone to see.
hey guys welcome back to my channel so
this video it’s going to be a good ol
what they don’t tell you video you guys
seem to like though is I if you have not
watched my breastfeeding like our story
video I had a heck of an experience with
breastfeeding my one baby I’m still
nursing him one time a day and he is 14
months so we made it this far
patting myself on the back oh it’s been
a journey how this get read into it if
you want to see more videos like this or
more videos on baby stuff or just more
videos with me with Beckham lots of
stuff just subscribe down below and you.
just I’m talking let’s just give me that
you so number number one is a number
twice this is gonna be it was gonna be a
fun video okay number one nah number one
breast feeding can decrease your chances
of breast cancer and other things and
your child’s chance of other cuts of
cancer. I think I just thought it started
out on a good note I didn’t know that
ahead of time I actually have on this
happy note not really I have a genetic
mutation thing that makes me like way
more likely to get breast cancer and
breast cancer runs in my family.
so by breastfeeding for over a year I
have decreased my chances a little bit
of getting breast cancer so there’s one
reason to breastfeed number two it can
be a great bonding experience and it can
also be something that hinders your
bonding so breast feeding is a great way
to bond with your baby it just creates
this connection with your baby it
releases oxytocin and happy hormones so
you feel bonded to your baby and happier
but if things go wrong like they didn’t
in case it can create bonding issues no
one ever told me that like oh if you
will maybe have issues breastfeeding and
when you have those issues breastfeeding
you’re not gonna want anything to do
with your baby you’re gonna just not
bond with them well and eventually
things got better and my breastfeeding
relationship helping me bond more with
them and kind of fix that issue with
bonding, so it’s just us but no one told
me that number three
breastfeeding it can actually make you
feel I mean this makes sense but no one
warned me about it again it can make you
feel like you still not have your body
back so when you’re in the last stages
that last trimester of pregnancy you
really don’t feel like you have control
of your body because you have this human
that’s like stretching and and kicking
and hurting and heavy and and they’re
precious little things and blessings but
they make you feel like your body is not
your own you’re not you well my thinking
was that when I push this baby out for
two-and-a-half hours that I would have
my body back, somewhat I feel like myself
again actually I had a really hard time
adjusting to being a mom and all of the
changes of that that year of my life and
so it changed me more than I thought
and I didn’t have my body back because
I’m nursing all the time like every two
to three hours for like 12 months it
still makes you feel like you don’t have
your body back until pretty much you’re
done breastfeeding I can’t just like fly
off on a trip I mean I think he live you
can give him whole milk now but for a
long time I can’t just like leave and
just not I have to get a bottle ready
your pump or whatever so I still feel
and felt that my body was I didn’t have
it back all right got 10% left on my
phone number four is that breastfeeding
is a lot weirder for everyone else in
the world than it is for you and your
baby I thought it maybe would be weird
for me I didn’t think it was weird that
makes sense I kind of was like somewhat
a little bit dreading it because I
didn’t know how weird it would be for me
but when people say that they are
okay with breastfeeding in public
because they’re feeding their baby it’s
because they’re feeding their baby it’s
not weird for the mom and it’s not weird
for the baby it’s a natural natural
thing that is literally like sustaining.
your baby’s life like I kind of thought
it might be weird it wasn’t weird but I
also didn’t realize how weird it was to
other people you know what I mean I
don’t know if I’m making sense and to be
completely honest all I wanted to do was
sit there feed my baby and watch the
football game on the TV and not have it
be weird for people around me number
five most babies hate covers hate
Nursing covers when they’re so little
you can’t see what you’re doing so you
don’t necessarily want to cover on but
by the time you know what you’re doing
and you want if you still want to cover
the babies hate it and they kick and
they throw and they think it’s a fun
game whoa like hi number six but they
didn’t tell me about pregnancy is this
an D little method of feeding your baby
without using a cover without exposing
yourself too much if you don’t want to
expose yourself and that is to wear a
nursing tank underneath just a t-shirt
all you have to do is pull up on one
side you’re they kind of roll up your
shirt a little bit and then the nursing
tanks they just unlatch then you can
pull a small part of your tank top down
latch baby on and no one can see
anything your baby’s head covers like
all of it number two I’ve talked about
this number two number seven ties are
real I talked about this and my other
two breastfeeding videos I’ll talk about
it till the end of eternity tongue ties
and lip ties are real they can affect
your breastfeeding in a bad way if you
if they’re they’re bad ties there’s a
quick easy way to revise them coconut
oil is is the holy grail of
breastfeeding products
breastfeeding is not a reliable form of
birth control, I heard this a little bit especially in
our breastfeeding class but I just
wanted to reiterate it for those of you
that may not have heard it do not rely
on breastfeeding to not get you pregnant
again breastfeeding can hurt it hurt a
lot it can hurt at the beginning and a
normal amount your nipples have to get
like accustomed to breastfeeding it’s a
weird thing kind of for your body to get
used to and so in order to be used to it
it’s probably gonna hurt at first for a
little while but there’s another level
to that hurt if the baby’s latch is not
correct as in my case it can be
excruciating like I had a cracked on
balls but one was so severe it’s like
cracked on the middle I didn’t think
that was ever gonna work right again in
my life I thought it was just done for
it was so bad it’s not a laughing matter
I don’t know why I’m laughing
you warned that it can get worse and if
it is getting worse then you should
probably get help or get something like
something needs to change it’s too late
right now okay. so burp them between sides that’s
just one thing that they didn’t tell me
that I should do feed em on one side
take them off burp um they usually have
a huge burp all that gas feeding them on
the other side
burp um sometimes when you feed them on
one side this is my number 10 sometimes
if you feed them on one side they either
just only want you know that side
sometimes they have a preference for
sides sometimes they just are full and
they don’t want the other side well then
you have very lopsided boobs
it’s fun especially swimming suits it’s
fun nobody told me how big your boobs
get when your milk comes in get huge and
they are hard and they’re engorged and
it hurts and and they’re huge and tall
but there’s a small frame so I’m not and
boobs my entire life okay
then all of a sudden I get pregnant I
start breastfeeding and all the sudden
milk comes in and,
I am like was like how do I even fit
into shirts right Oh even after you’re
not engorged anymore for a few months
when you’re feeding all the time your
boobs are huge they’re just like they’re
humongous they look great but they’re
humongous okay number eleven I just
talked about I wrote down just how big
your boobs get and number twelve.
I wrote down just how small your boobs
end up afterward, so I’m still feeding
him I haven’t even read them completely
someone once told me that maybe I’d have
bigger boobs by the time I had babies
and I was done having my babies well I
don’t know what they were smoking
because holy cow they’re gone oh man I
can’t believe I’m posting this on the
Internet very good next thing is that
you can drink alcohol while pregnant
lots of well pregnant oh my god oh do
not drink alcohol while pregnant that’s
not even funny
it’s so late okay you can drink alcohol
while breastfeeding some alcohol if you
feel okay to drive
you got your bearings you feel safe but
you know you’re lemon-like little little
little little little amounts would pass
through to your baby as long as you’re
not going out and getting drunk or
partying having a ton of drinks then you
should pump and dump just because you’re
breastfeeding after you have your baby
doesn’t mean that like you have you’re
forbidden from drinking alcohol for the
next twelve months nobody told me how
much my baby would feed or need to nurse
or they didn’t warn me about cluster
feeding so when I had Beckham, and he was
a newborn he was pretty much eating all
the day every day.
he took his sweet time while he was
eating which whatever it was fine but
like 30 to 40-minute long process and
then you wake up an hour and a half
later and nurse again for another 40
minutes and sometimes it’s even more
than that sometimes it’s last and he
spaces them out more but nobody warned
me about cluster feeding and how often
it happens and how crazy it can kind of
make you read the cues from your baby
cluster feeding is probably gonna happen
find a good Netflix show or shows a good
book nobody told me how much your boobs
leak at the beginning when you’re taking
showers or you’re changing clothes you
just leak everywhere it’s like milk it’s
just going everywhere it was like on the
bathroom floor or in life man what what
do men even have to like ever go through
and then the next one is a little less
crazy it’s my last one that I could
think of it’s a little bit a little more
relevant recently is that everyone and
their mother like literally their
fathers to expect you to stop
breastfeeding at 12 months if you have
made it that far not everyone on this
earth but a ton of people think it’s
weird if you breastfeed past 12 months
but like I don’t get it he’s 12 months
like if you look at a 12-month baby, it’d
still, look like a baby believe it or not
they still like the comfort of Nursing
it’s great antibodies during the winter
um I haven’t had a ton of slack from it
I just amazed me how much people just
expected me to be done or to wean him
right at 12 months I mean I’m just kind
of following him as if he wants to be
done well be done but if he doesn’t I’m
not gonna be like oh sorry buddy you’re
12 months old here you turned one it
sucks to suck how many people expect you
to just be like
sorry buddy go drink your whole milk ah
yeah I think I probably just need to be
done because I just gonna think keep
thinking of weird things alright well
that was a fun video hopefully it helped
you out hopefully kind of give you some
more realistic expectations of what
breastfeeding can be like and to kind of
prepare you if you haven’t had your baby
yet and you’re planning on
breastfeeding if you are going, you if
you’re planning on formula feeding go
you it’s fine like do you you do you I
encourage everyone to try breastfeeding
even though I made it sound like a
living hell, because it really is a great thing and a
great bonding thing if it goes right is
