DD has just started to (sort of and more often than not over past week) sleep through, so when I wake up in the morning my breasts are massive, up by my ears (okay, so I lie, but they have some serious gravity defying stuff going on) and they ache.
If DD's wonderful phase carries on, will this always be the way I feel in the morning, or will it get better? And if so, when???
OOO, makes my eyes water just remembering that phase. It really doesn't last long, a few days. Cabbage is good, tho a bit smelly! First feed in the morning was such a relief . Couldn't even face a shower until after a feed. Could take the opportunilty to try and express from one breast while feeding from the other in the morninig, you'll be sorted for expressed breast milk for weeks!
For me it still happens every day. My ds is sleeping through more nights than he isn't (maybe 1 waking night to 4 sleep throughs) but I am still - several weeks on - waking up with rocks for norks, big wet patches (even though i've got lilipadz plus breast pads on) and when I release my weapons boobs ds gets a liberal squirting . Am actually really uncomfy. not only do my norks ache and beyond a certain time it hurts to lie on my side, but if i'm on my back, that aches like anything (I think it's the heavier chest)
