I've calculated it all out. I've spent 43 months of my life breastfeeding my four babes. 43 months of my life alchohol, garlic, broccoli and steak tar tar free. OK, not that last part. But I've loved every minute of it, bar the leaking in public, raw throbbing nipples, taking liquid doses of More Milk Plus (which really works by the way) to boost production (but makes you smell like rancid maple syrup) and hiding out in bathrooms to nurse my babies because I was terrified to do it in public. Yuck. Oh, how I wished I had the boldness of mothers who simply sat on a park bench with a blanket over their sholder.
With my fourth child, I gained courage, or lost diffidence, and was able to nurse my newborn on my living room couch in front of my in-laws. Mostly, I imagine because I was tired, cranky and dammit this was my house. If they were uncomfortable, they could get up and retire to another room. I still have not reached the summit where I can "whip it out" while walking down the grocery store isles ..... baby steps young mothers, baby steps.
As the title of this post suggests, I've heard that Udder Covers is offering a promotion for a gorgeous nursing cover. I'm not sure how long the promotion is, but it's regularly priced at $32, you need only pay shipping. They are beautiful cotton prints, my favorite is called Elsa, and I've promised myself that by the time I finish writing this I'll have decided if I want one. I am on the other hand trying to stop nursing my just turned one baby girl, who is not liking the idea. So I'm thinking I'll justify it as a gift, or for baby #5... OH, Sorry! The most important part! After you've added the cover you want to your shopping cart, put in the Promo Code ONEFREE, that will zero out the $32, you can even use paypal!
