In my book, the chapter on nursing is called “Shards of Glass” because when you first start nursing…well, it hurts like hell! (I worked through it, though.) Anyway, this drawing by my dear friend Heather Hopp-Bruce is funny and relatable. My kids did some – if not all – of these things with a bottle, too.
Heather Hopp-Bruce is the creator of TheBaby Sucks (and other breastfeeding tips) and a contributor to TheMommyhood.com. She lives with her husband and three young daughters in Boston, Massachusetts. You should totally follow her on Facebook and Twitter.
