Before you got pregnant or had your baby I bet you never thought that much about your boobs did you? I know I didn’t beyond a wishful, cursory check every so often that they hadn’t disappeared – though I think my husband would’ve let me know if they had. However once I got that precious, long awaited bfp (big fat positive – positive pregnancy test!) all of the things I’d previously tried to stop myself thinking about came flooding in. What our baby would be like, how we would parent it, what we could call it, how I would give birth and where, whether it really needed so many giraffe based newborn items (answer: yes) and how to feed it.
So it’s finally happened! Congratulations! Your little bundle of joy has been placed into your arms and instantly the world and his mother launches all the parenting advice and platitudes they can at you. Let me take you on a Dodging Tigers mythbusting episode. We suffered – perhaps you don’t have to!
