"I hate breastfeeding."
Those are the words my husband said last night as he looked at me with the tears streaming down my face. Breastfeeding is painful for me. Like really really painful. I've seen a lactation specialist, twice, and she assures me that I must be doing something wrong because breastfeeding shouldn't hurt. Except, she can't find anything wrong with what I'm doing.
Our little one has a healthy appetite and is hungry (like REALLY hungry) every 2 hours, and it takes me an hour to an hour and half to feed her every time. So, if I feed her at 8am, I will typically be done feeding her at 9:15ish. At 10am she starting rooting and screaming bloody murder because she is starving (poor thing). This is hell on my boobs. (Oh, and I wonder if I will ever sleep longer than 2 hours again.)

On the other hand, I love the way Clara rests her hands on my body while I nurse her...and the adorable sounds she makes while she eats. Ohmygod - melts my heart! And i loooove cuddling with her adorable little body during those times. I consider taking pictures and videos...but that would just be too weird.
