Mouth on boob. Hand down shirt. Foot in face. No, it’s not a kinky version of Twister. It’s your typical day of breastfeeding a toddler.
Anytime is meal time, every position is on the table and your ability to discreetly breastfeed is officially a thing of the past.
If your toddler is constantly tugging at your shirt and has mastered the fine art of feeding standing up and upside down, then you’re doing it right.
Yup. This is the next level of breastfeeding ladies and gents. And, if you’ve made it this far, then you know that breastfeeding a toddler is a lesson in flexibility and stamina, especially for your poor nipples. #somuchouch
