5 Signs You’re a Breastfeeding Mother

Your Health


In the past year I’ve served more than 2,000 meals to my daughter, Lena. I estimate that’s about 14,000 ounces of breast milk—some pumped, some fresh. It hasn’t always been easy but I feel grateful I had the opportunity to give her the best meals possible. In honor of my nearly 1 year of breastfeeding (Lena turns 1 on August 25!) and National Breastfeeding Awareness Month, I want to share these 5 signs you’re a breastfeeding mother.

You know you’re breastfeeding if…

Each morning you wake up almost a full cup size larger.

You wear some questionable “nursing friendly” outfits.

It’s been years since you’ve gotten really drunk. You wouldn’t want to intoxicate the baby!

One boob is always larger than the other. That’s how you know which side is next for feeding.

Your husband misses quality tata time.

Also be sure to check out the new movie documentary Breastmilk, a film that takes the unusual risk of examining what breast milk truly means. Very cool look at different women's journeys.
