Do some people really get a wave of euphoria when breastfeeding? Really? Perhaps I don't have enough hormones.

I didn't dislike breastfeeding, except at first when it was painful, but to me it was just a functional thing to do to get milk into DD. Just like making a cup of tea or whatever. It was a means to an end.

Sorry, my last post must have come across as rather rude. I simply didn't realise that breastfeeding gave some women such a sense of euphoria because I certainly never felt like that. smile

I only managed to BF ds twice as he was prem and found latching on really hard BUT I do remember a massive rush of something -relief, euphoria, some sort of feeling flooded my body? I can still remember it vividly nearly 12 years on.

That link makes interesting reading. I didn't have any of those feelings except the tingling when it was time to feed DD, but that was before she started feeding, not during. DD never had a strong suck so maybe that was why I didn't get a surge of hormones. It never made me feel emotional either. It was just something I did.

I wonder why it is so different for different women?

Fwiw I feel exactly the same as bunbaker about breastfeeding.

But these experiences are very personal and feelings one way or the other very strong - one reason I never venture on the various threads on here which deal with pregnancy, breastfeeding, working and SAH mums, etc, but just enjoy myself in S and B (and occasionally film and TV threads).

Still think those necklaces are tacky and yuk though!

Well, this is S & B and opinions on whether an item is stylish or beautiful are the lifeblood of this part of the board. Those necklace IMO are neither stylish or beautiful.

Does anyone else think she ditches the breastmilk and just has a selection of translucent beads she uses?

People who used formula could sent in a bag of ready mixed SMA wink

Lost, by your post I'm the target market for this - I love BFing. But I don't like those pendants (ugly and tacky in design) and I also don't feel the need to enshrine some of my milk in plastic to "define myself".

Lord. I LOVE them. Kooky and kitch. Beautiful.

In fact, a plain-ish oval pendant with milk blobs (no names) might look quite cool teamed with a YSL arty ring.

Wow, they even do cuff links! So your adult son can wear them presumably? Awesome... If you want him to never have a girlfriend and look like a wierd mummy's boy! Fair enough if this is your thing, get a neclace (/medal) for yourself, but not for the kids, please!!

grin at spunky gems!

I liked breast feeding. I have zero desire to save my milk in a pendant though!
