The Boob Group

Every new mommy needs to find herself a good boob group. It’s kind of like a right of passage if you will, where you become a certified mommy. One session and you’ll feel like part of the club, the good old girls. Rock your mom jeans (because sadly, let’s be honest, your old jeans are going to give you a muffin top with that new waist of yours) and be sure to bring your baby carrier (ergo or gemini, they’re both acceptable for baby wearing these days) and settle down for a couple hours of nipple talk.

As a new mom, I have a love hate relationship with these nipples. Breastfeeding was initially excruciatingly painful, and now it is only sometimes moderately painful. People don’t tell you this before you have a baby, and that is probably a good thing because otherwise everyone would want to go use formula right off the starting block. The love part about this scenario is that the painful memories, and ongoing challenges with them give you a golden ticket to the boob group. It’s important to have something to say, some challenge every week that you can throw out there to the nipple committee, to have them nod in agreement and reassure you that in fact, childbirth and breastfeeding and all subjects baby are ridiculously difficult. The boob group is a place where you can proudly pull out those ladies and because of it, you’ll make friends. I love me some good boob group time and can’t wait to see where this new found place in mommyhood will take us!

    …Because there aren’t many places where you can just whip out your boob and make friends! Genius!
