Please understand that I know "they're for feeding your baby", and that it's "the most natural thing in the world." What I'm hoping for are women who felt this way and got over it! The thought of breastfeeding directly...gives me the willies. I have very small (AA), very sensitive breasts. I can "O" from breast play alone, so to me, regardless of the media's influence, MY breasts have always been very sexual to ME. I am so determined to give my baby the best start (ie breastfeeding), and I know pumping can be just as, if not more, challenging. But the anxiety of this--basically my balking at the idea of latching--is causing nightmares and anxiety. Not exactly something I can chat with my husband about!
Advice would be much appreciated; non-judgemental, and people from similar situations, even more so!! Do those feelings go away?? Did BFing affect your sex life at all? Did your squickiness go away the moment you laid eyes on your baby? Haaaallllp
