Ok. I’ve been filming Ruby nursing for a long time. I don’t think I’ve ever, before now, had a video that adequately demonstrates what a session is like for us – a typical, frustrating session.
I hesitated to post it, because there is a ton of boob. Really, a ton. And Ruby was bottomless, but I covered that up. (It took FOREVER.) But I want everyone, all of you who have tried to help and offered suggestions, to see what it’s like to attempt to nurse her. She desperately wants to – she cries when I unlatch her, when I take it away. This nursing session was just over an hour from her previous feeding, so she’s not overly hungry or ravenous. She’s not distracted. This is completely typical.
I’m trusting my community and my lovely followers to know themselves, and also those of you whom I work with that troll my blog: if you don’t want to see my breast, don’t push play on the video. That means you, Dad.
