I have nursed all my four babes 👶🏼👦🏼👦🏻👦🏼and have absolutely loved the bonding experience from it. Plus we are all pretty familiar how wonderful it is for baby right? Lowered risk of SIDS, they get sick less and lowered risk of allergies, get nutrients that help strengthen/develop their immune system in a way no formula can, and the list goes on for baby. Plus some of you probably are aware of the healthy benefits for the mama......breastfeeding lowers the risk of depression, can reduce your risk of diseases, it helps the uterus contract and return to its previous smaller size, and again.....the list goes on.
So I am going to be 100% real.....there's some vain reasons to make nursing sound even better! Even though it's pretty amazing on its own, I'm going to share these 5 little bonuses......I think we all like something in it for us too......right?
#1 it's FREE!!!! That's right you save a lot of money breastfeeding......like $1,700 or more a year actually. That's a lot of dough for a great handbag....just saying.🍈🍈🐄🤑👜
#2 It's ready to go!!! No bottles, formula, water, etc. Nothing makes me happier knowing that when my baby's hungry he can be fed immediately. I don't have to fumble for a bottle in my diaper bag on the go......or at a football game😉🏈.....I am ready. I have enough to remember with four kiddos, and I am happy to not need to remember more. My baby cries, milk lets down, and he eats.....pretty cool super power skills🍈🍈👶🏼
#3 Calories.....who cares!!! You don't have to limit calories or diet at all while nursing. In fact you need as much as 500 a day.......woohooooooo!!!! Coming from a girl who loves food-this is huge! Breastfeeding makes it easier to lose the weight after baby. I am almost at my exact weight before baby.....and I get to burn calories by cuddling and feeding my baby.....yes please!!👶🏼🍈🍈🍟😍🍕🌮
#4 Amazzzzzzing Breasts. To be completely honest milk breasts are the best. They're big, round, perky, and 100% real. They look like fake boobs.......without being rock hard. Who in their right mind would be at all disappointed by that?!?🍈🍈👶🏼👫
#5 Breastmillk.....it's "liquid gold" people!!!! Seriously, I had pink eye for the first time while nursing my son. The medicine didn't seem to be helping, and I was wearing Jackie Kennedy inspired sunglasses around the clock because of my eye being so swollen and disgusting. I decided to take matters into my own hands. I expressed some breast milk and poured some of my milk into my eye.....yes.....I did that. Guess what, it felt better and looked better within a day or two tops......100% true story. I have also read articles about it helping Eczema, ear infections, rashes, clogged tear ducts, acne, and so much more🍈🍈🐄🤒.
So enjoy these added, but not so talked about perks, on breastfeeding. I
am still currently nursing my 10 month old, and did it for at least a year for all my 4 babies. There's nothing more amazing than cradling that sweet babe in your arms and knowing you are feeding them the best. I will say, however, I am currently nursing a biter......just keeping it 100% real. With all the health benefits, as well as the fun benefits I listed a above.....the pros by far outweigh the cons (or the bites that is🍈🍈😳). So enjoy feeding your baby......and all the great benefits that come with it😉.
