*So* over breastfeeding....

Just a little rant here -- it's been two and a half weeks, and I'm already SOOOOO sick of nursing!

I'm committed to it, as I already have two asthmatic sons, and I'm determined to give Iggy the best possible odds for beating asthma. And since I nursed my other two, I definitely owe him this.

But, God -- it just SUCKS. I'm so sore, I'm too big for any bra on this planet (seriously, Pamela Anderson would be jealous), and if I do wear one (like if I have to actually see an adult who isn't an immediate relative) I end up with a painful plugged duct.

I know this is temporary. After six weeks, it will be a piece of cake, but this is just HELL.

Ah, the things I do for my boys. (But I promise to never, EVER hold this over any of them!)

Congratulations on your new baby! Hope breastfeeding is going more easily now. :) Just wanted to let you know that The Angry Asthma Mama is the featured blog at Genetics and Health this week.
