I'm a lazy mummy! (Breastfeeding Benefits)

by - 00:00:00

Im a lazy mummy! No, that doesn't mean I lay in bed all day while my toddler just does her thing, but it means if there is an easier option that is just as good, I will take it! I mean why make more work for myself? So breastfeeding seamed like the only option right!

You wake up its 3am, your toddler has had you up teething all night so far and you just got 23 mins kip (yes, you counted, sleep is that precious!) so the last thing you want/need to be doing in getting yourself out of your warm bed (you know it will wake you up completely!) stumble down the stairs without falling and then fumble round the kitchen trying to sterilise bottles, boil the kettle and measure powder! You after spending what feels like an eternity making this bottle, you re-climb your stairs, hold you now screaming child and feed her.

No, not in our house, it's 3am, you hear a wimper, your boobs already out. (You must have fallen asleep feeding earlier) you point it in her direction, you feel a few sucks... It's 8am alarm goes off guess you fell back to sleep as she got her milk just like that!

So for me (the lazy mum!) the benefits to everyday breastfeeding are:
It's sterile (no need to be using a steriliser
It's there (no mixing powder and water)
It's the right temperature (no heating/cooling bottles)
It's the only natural food designed for my baby and protects my baby from infections and diseases!
It's always available EXACTLY when we need it!

But then there is the 'special event' benefits:
Like when you go and holiday and get all that extra space! (My list: 2 boobs, check!) (other peoples lists sterlizer, bottle, formular/cows milk (or worrying about where to buy cows milk/bottled water)

Of course, there are the other benifits too (the mummy benifits)
Like reducing the risk of cancer! (Sounds like a great BIG HUGE plus to me)
And my person favourite no periods! (Ok so it's not for everyone, but most get no periods, I've had 2 periods since I've pregnancy (22 months ago!!)
Ohh and did I mention it uses up to 500 calories a day (yes I'll have another slice of cake please!)
Breastfeeding cafés! (They are free, you make friends for life, get information on anything from feeding to itchy legs! And there's free tea, coffee, squash, fruit and cake!)
It gives you a special bond and an amazing sense of achievement :)

I guess the BIGGEST BENEFIT for us though... It's FREE!!! (We saved so much money!)

What's your biggest benifit?
