Weaning, the idea is as terrible as the word sounds

I hate the word “wean”. Its the same way I feel about the word “moist”.

Last night I woke up at 2am in a wet bed. Couldnt place how this happened. No baby in the bed, check. No toddler in bed,  check. Didn’t fall asleep again with full glass in hand, check. Is hubby sweating? Nope.

Did i wet the bed? How awkward. Realized that my boobs were leaking. Wet the WHOLE bed in a giant circle.

So this is why they recommend pads in your bra. My first leak, as I’m on my way out the baby feeding door & laundry is still 4 flights down 2 blocks away. I’ll pull a daddy trick & just lay a towel over it & pretend it’s not there.  Isn’t motherhood hard enough already?

PS bambooies, the ultra cool breast feeding pads are uber expensive. I used these instead for non disposable & avent or nuk for work disposables. Although I realize the cloth is so much healthier, no chemicals brushing on the nips-sometimes i just couldn’t do laundry!
