Competitive Eating

My latest for Breastfeeding Mama Talk! I really should have drank more water when I was breastfeeding. I had clogged ducts almost the entire time I breastfed my son – 15 months! It was super painful, and there would be times where nothing would come out. I still feel guilty because he didn’t gain weight for an entire month when I first started getting clogged ducts. I often wonder if I were better about drinking water in the first place if I would have gotten the clogged ducts. Drinking more water afterward didn’t really help.

Anyway, that’s my story. It’s not meant to scare anyone off of breastfeeding or anything, or encourage people to plow through the pain if they’re going through something similar. Just me typing my random thoughts about water and breastfeeding.
