While breastfeeding, when did your cycle return?

Did you milk it for all it was worth? (breastfed or pumped)

It Doesn’t Hurt So Much

I’m posting this information as much for myself as I am for anyone else—so that with future children I can remember that there is relief from teething.

Par has been BF 24/7 for the past week (well, it seems like that anyway) because of his teething. I’m happy to say that after many days of being very sore—I finally have relief. They are bottom teeth, so I can’t even tell while feeding them—but sticking my finger in his mouth, they are sharp!

His constant BF has definitely been for comfort and not because he was hungry—I actually am able to tell the difference—it surprised me that I could. Anyway, I was afraid that a week of constant BF would start some new “habits”—but if it did, today definitely broke them!

We had to take an emergency road trip (check out FoR in the next few days for the full story) and of course, Par had to come along with us! Being strapped in—the mommy buffet wasn’t very accessible and although he cried some—it definitely was because he just didn’t want to be in his carseat anymore or because he was so tired. So hopefully, we are back to normal—still on demand feeding, but with actual “full hours” between feedings!
