Commercials of the breast pumps and actually all baby products shows slim moms with the makeup done and CLEAN hair reading a magazine on the comfortable sofa while pumping.Or smiling baby while mama is changing a dry diaper to another dry diaper😂(commercials are the best though😂)
I’m looking at them and thinking 🤔 is it just me who have time only for lipstick?🙄Can I at least dye my eyebrows please?Or they are faking and no one actually have time for makeup or to even wash their hair more often than once in 3-4 weeks?I feel like I can never pump sitting and relaxing there🧐 No seriously my hair on the picture is in the pony tail because it’s dirty 🥴 my son is on my arms because he crying when I’m not holding him😭
During the pumping session I’m either trying to calm my @little_prince_ervin_joseph down, either washing my face when he is not crying(rare casesfor 5 miraculous minutes)either doing dishes, cooking, cleaning, changing- oh what a weirdness a FULL diaper 😂 on the DRY diaper(doesn’t sounds like a commercial😅)etc.
Well thank Jesus that now moms have these nice portable, rechargeable, smart and lightweight double breast pumps with special apps and a lot of functions like my @mybabybuddha And now I have so much milk that my baby boy taking a milky baths every other day 🛁
And looking back I really don’t know how I managed being exclusively pumping mom with single manual Avent pump for 15 months😩 for my @virsaviya_art_heart 10 years ago!
But even with all these innovations I can tell that commercials making it look too easy. I just want people to know the real struggle of raising the baby, lack of rest and time, those rolls on the belly(Second picture) painful breastfeeding, clogged ducts, damaged nipples, mastitis( all these when flanges size is wrong) nipple confusion, diaper rash, poops all over the back and head 💩😂 colic, using the bathroom while breastfeeding because it’s the only time when the baby is calm 🤦🏼♀️ that’s not a commercial right there it’s a real life💁🏼♀️can you relate?I just hope you feel better now and knows that you are not alone 🙋🏼♀️ Ask me any questions here about motherhood,breastfeeding I hope I can help🙏🏾#real
