“Did you experience contractions while breastfeeding 🤱🤱🤱? Share your story below!!! 👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼.

They’re really common, and get worse the more kids you have!

With my third I literally had to use my pain relief and breathing techniques that I used for labor! It was so bad – I remember telling my husband that I thought it was worse than labor because you don’t get a baby after 😂 (I may have been hormonal too)

The contractions will end a few weeks after baby – after your uterus contracts down to its normal size.

Isn’t our body amazing? Breastfeeding releases oxytocin which helps our uterus recover. So cool.” 🎥 @balanced.birth.couple

Yes mine were terrible and I’ve just had one child! It was a combination of extreme contractions, worse than labour and bleeding. So not happy it gets worse with more babies!

That’s supposed to happen! Breastfeeding triggers the hormone that induces contractions to prevent you from having postpartum hemorrhaging.

Yep! I wanted to cry and stop feeding and the staff just kept telling me to keep going as it was a good sign of healing. Thank goodness it only lasted like 2 days.

Weirdly no… I never felt my own contractions when it was time to push and I never had breast milk come in less than a week after giving birth.

Yeees!!! I even sent my hubby for pain relief, but never used it in the end, was afraid that it will transfer to the baby. I remember lying in the bed at night, feeding, and literally crying, if was horrible…

So true! First, for my baby girl! But no one told me that it would be the same for my second child! The nurses told me, in the end, the more you have children, the worst the pain is 😩

Are the contractions happening because of the breastfeeding? Or is it because of the uterus going back to its normal size?

Dear all women who were pregnant before me…youve FAILED to inform the rest of us of what pregnancy REALLY is……the betrayal!

Teething Hack: wrap an ice cube with a baby washcloth and secure with a rubber band. Something cold to suck on and easy for baby to hold.
