Re: Feeling so sad about baby fussing during BFing
Mama: Don't let this get you down. Nursing a newborn is tough! There's a reason why people call the first three months of a baby's life the "4th trimester". There isn't any time in your child's future when she will be developing, changing, and/or learning as fast as she is right now. There is no other placental mammal on the planet whose offspring are born as weak, uncoordinated, and helpless as human babies, and that's why struggling with nursing is normal. It's also temporary. Your baby is going to outgrow this fussy, difficult period and I promise you that eventually nursing is going to be fun and pleasant. I had an awful time nursing my first kid. The first 3 months were hell. By 6 months it only felt like purgatory. But after that, it was heaven.
Coolest thing my big girl said recently: "How can you tell the world is moving when you are standing on it?"
