Is it normal to feel like I have no life since I EBF?
Since I'm Robert's only source of food it's always my job to feed. When I go out I always have to think about leaking, the right bra, the type of shirt I can wear if I need to nurse elsewhere, etc.
If I leave him with a babysitter I still need to think about pumping and I feel like that's even more a pain in the ass than just nursing!
Tomorrow MIL is taking Robert so I'm going to spend time with friends. I'm not even looking forward to it because I'm trying to figure out logistics for pumping! They wanted to go for a hike and then a picnic lunch ... How the hell can I do that and not become crazy engorged and leak...
Same thing with my friends bachelorette. Her sister planned this awesome full day winery tour. Again I'm trying to figure out how to squeeze in pumping while out and about and it's just making me want to stay home.
I love breastfeeding but I hate it at the same time.
Is this how it is or are there ways to make it less of a hassle?
