“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

Im 8 week pregnate.. And im scare as f**k… 😩, i feel terrible with The nauses, im glad för The information but its scary to see all that we are about to go thru
Until 1 year i feel the contraction its that normal?
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…
Definitely the worse!! I kept breastfeeding my first during pregnancy and tandem nursing them at the moment, they are 15 months apart… my contraction during breastfeeding them both will be remembered 😅
Oh my gosh yes! 😫 after having my 4th baby I got them and they were painful. 😖
It was more painful than labor
Yes, my crazy ask the nurse wth was going on…cause NO 🙅🏾♀️
I didn’t but it’s all a blur as much as I wanted to remember every sec idk why I can’t my first son is 12yrs my 2nd is 5months❤️
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.
Dear all women who were pregnant before me…youve FAILED to inform the rest of us of what pregnancy REALLY is……the betrayal!
That’s supposed to happen! Breastfeeding triggers the hormone that induces contractions to prevent you from having postpartum hemorrhaging.
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!
Are the contractions happening because of the breastfeeding? Or is it because of the uterus going back to its normal size?
I never had this problem I didn’t know u could get contractions while breastfeeding. Moms are so strong 💪🏽
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 😩
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.
can someone please tell me that having children isn’t going to be this terrible.. 🥴
THE worst!! Definitely worse with each baby and you’re not wrong about them being worse than labour 😬
I had this for about a week with my second when breastfeeding 😂.. I got hit with that dreaded feeling of “oh no…. not again “😳
