The same goes for breastfeeding. It’s a heated topic that leaves so many young, new moms full of fear that oftentimes finds them doubting their ability even before they give it a try.
This past week, Snooki from the hit reality TV show “Jersey Shore” sat down with Good Morning America to dish about her current pregnancy and discuss what motherhood will be like for her.
She raised concern about breastfeeding because “it looks so painful” and it’s “kinda like being a cow”.
While some might scoff at her young uninformed innocence towards motherhood, her concerns are completely valid. Unfortunately, breastfeeding is often intimidating and scary, especially to first-time moms.
I‘ve taken 9 common fears and concerns, and weighed in with my unsolicited two cents.
You know, because everyone has an opinion these days.
It’s worth noting, I am no professional, I speak only from my personal experience of breastfeeding four kids over the course of the past seven years. So, you know, grain of salt.
What was your biggest breastfeeding fear prior to becoming a mom? Did it come true?
