You know those new mom things that happen that NO ONE talks about? Mommas, put on those blue-blocking glasses and read on!
We went to the mall for a family lunch date and I thought it would be appropriate for me to swing by Motherhood Maternity for some new bras. Mine were killing me (um, hello, did you know your boobs grow A TON when that magic milk comes in?!) and I wanted to find something more comfortable.
After getting a couple different sizes and styles to try-on, I entered the fitting room while hubs pushed Clara through the store. First bra was great. Second was also great but maybe I needed a different size? On to the third…
Oh my goodness WHAT IS HAPPENING?! As I took the second bra off to try on the third, I looked in the mirror and saw that magical milk making beautiful droplets ALL OVER ME AND THE FLOOR! This was before I recognized what a let-down felt like, and I could not believe I was actively lactating in the store.
I was horrified. And laughing. And I thought “Welp, I need to try the third on, so might as well hold my little breast pads on and go for it!” I realized I needed another set of hands.
I called my hubs and told him to bring the stroller in the fitting room too. There we were, all three of us in the fitting room and I could only imagine what the store employees thought. I told my hubby that I needed him to hold the breast pads in place so I wouldn’t milk everything in sight. He was confused and amused but did as was told. And maybe then he realized that his life was truly changed forever?!
New mommas, I hope that when your milk comes in (and it will!!!) you remember this post and bring a friend (or tape) to get yourself some properly fitted nursing bras.
