Supply envy, pumping woes, and prop overload: These are just a few of the things that Meagan, Sarah, and resident-nursing-mom Katie realize in hindsight that we worried way too much about in our early breastfeeding days. Join us for a frank discussion about the things we wish we’d known about breastfeeding, plus our tips for worrying less and enjoying your nursing days more.

The one thing I remember most about breastfeeding was (like Katie said) I had one breast that always produced more milk. It was my left one and she was dubbed “Superboob” by my husband and I. Same one for both kids. Hopefully this doesn’t cause her to droop more too.

I laughed so hard when you talked about your pump talking to you. I’ve never had that conversation with any of my other mom friends, but I was convinced that mine said “Do your thing” every time I was done and let it run for a minute to flush out the condensation from the tubes. It was my little pat on the back for another pumping session completed. Love that I’m not the only one!!!
