How Does Breastfeeding Feel? The Things Nobody Tells You About Breastfeeding
How Does Breastfeeding Feel? The breast was made to feel good when it’s being sucked or touched by nature so that women would want to breastfeed. Like implying breastfeeding must feel really good. And that’s the way nature made it so that we’d want to do it.
Let’s see the problem with this is that, actually, breastfeeding doesn’t feel that good. In fact, you know there’s a reason why a lot of women don’t breastfeed. Because it actually can hurt a lot. A lot of women find it’s painful. It’s not supposed to be painful, but it ends up being painful.
And a lot of women give up very early, because of that or a little bit later. When you have a newborn, their mouth is really small and your nipple is not necessarily that small. You know for them to be latched on properly.
It doesn’t hurt what you have to know how to do this. It’s not like an automatic thing. They’re not sucking the nipple, they have to have their mouth wide open and the areola has to be in their mouth.
So the nipples like at the back of their throat, so it takes some kind of practice to get this for a lot of people. When you have a newborn and their mouth is like that big and it’s going like a little snapping turtle. And you’ve got this big nipple that you’re trying to get in there.
You know, it’s not easy and a lot of times to get it wrong and I mean there’s a reason why they make nipple creams for breastfeeding women. They treat cracked and painful nipples because it hurts. Believe it or not, breastfeeding is not like oh it feels so good.
That’s why we do it because we love it, know it. You know it feels good in the sense that you’re nurturing your baby. There are hormones that make you feel relaxed. They call it the feel-good hormone. But I call it the feel exhausted hormone because it just wipes you out.
You know, how does breastfeeding feel? It makes you feel sometimes like a moment of joy and feeling a kind of bliss with your baby of feeling like everything’s right with the world. It’s weird it’s just a feeling like that. You just feel good about everything lasts for like a minute.
Some people have it the other way around and they feel depressed. So, in any case, it doesn’t even okay. It hurts for a lot of people. And then you know with practice, they get over that. It doesn’t hurt anymore but another thing is. It can feel annoying even if it doesn’t hurt.
I mean if your breast is really full and the baby’s draining it, it feels good because it’s a relief. And the baby is on there for a while, or if the baby has teeth. It’s like this I meet me on your nipple. It doesn’t feel good, you know other than that as a mother. You’re doing something good for your baby which feels good, but physically no.
I can hurt and it can be annoying the actual sucking on the nipple like personally. It doesn’t feel good, you know you guys are just gonna have to take it for me that it does need to. It doesn’t work that way, and you know ask other breastfeeding moms.
I’ve never heard of anyone saying that they enjoyed it. Even if it did feel good, it wouldn’t be in a sexual way because it’s your baby and that like sexual arousal has everything to do with the context. So it has nothing to do with being turned on and a lot of time. It doesn’t have anything to do with feeling good either.
