What do you do while breastfeeding???

My little 2-week-old angel, she loves Momma's breast. And, I know we are going to be spending a lot of time together in the coming years. In the past few days, she has become more alert and not sleeping so much through our sessions. I sing to her a lot (poor thing!) or describe what's happening on T.V. or just simply talk to her. I have a 10 and 8 year old whom I breastfed for a month each, so this is 'new' to me.

So, I began wondering what other mothers do while breastfeeding. I know there is much NAKing around here, but what else? What's the funniest/weirdest thing you've done? I'm excited to hear what you all have to say!

I have had a full brazillian wax while nursing before. On a normal day I am wrestling a 10 month old's nursing gymnastics, NAK here or facebook, and drinking water.

DS3 would not wait. He wanted Mommy so I was laying on the table and whipped out a boob. I figured it would not bother the person doing the wax...LOL! She was amazed. My hubby was too.

Well DS is a sipper now but when he was little I watched a lot of movies and spent a lot of time online. I took an online class. I watched Pulp Fiction for the first time. I discovered Diaperswappers!

I discovered DIaperswappers while nursing DS too!

Pre-smartphone, while nursing DD, I would watch TV or read. She was a SUPER slow eater and liked to only nap on mommy, so I spent a lot of time watching on-demand TV!

Re: What do you do while breastfeeding???

Well.....this won't be light hearted, but for the first 2 mos of my sons life, I journaled by hand about some tough thingsgoingon in my life especially during our night feelings. At the time, the quiet of the night was not something I did well with.. My brother had died in a car accident 2 mos before N was born. On top of that, my dad was fighting is 6th year of stage four cancer but losing his son sucked more life out of him then the last 5 years had. I understood that as a new mom and sat watching my babe, wondering it 26 years would be all I would get with him like my dad got with my brother.....so I wrote about all our speciial moments, special times with grandpa, and his uncle he never knew. Partly for me, but also so someday he would see that life handed us such an obstacle, and we made it over it. I hope he never needs it for that reason someday, but at the very least he will know what a healing bundle of joy he was to me. And I'll be forever thankful I wrote about our trips out to grandpas farm....as he passed away just before Ns first birthday.

Re: What do you do while breastfeeding???

I either talk/sing, on fb DDC, on DS, eating or playing with the DSs on the floor.
Weirdest thing Ive done while nursing is throwing up when I had the stomach bug.It was one of those sudden puke with no warning and he just stayed latched on.Dont ask me why I didnt unlatch him and put him down because I have no clue.

Ipad, catch up on what everyone else not nursing 23 hrs a day are doing. Read to my older son, stalk blogs, obsessively watch toddlers in tiaras. The brat tier the better (thank you netflix)
