Breastmilk is SO Weird

I read an article on The Stranger, a Seattle based newspaper + blog and to say I learned some a few things is an understatement!

WOW! WHOA! Seriously?

I would say that I know a lot about breastfeeding because of the following:

A) I’m a researcher at heart + super inquisitive

B) I took an 8 hour breastfeeding class while pregnant

C) I breastfeed my son.

BUT, I never knew any of the eye-opening points that are discussed in the article. Here is a snippet (source) –

It should gross me out, but I find it too MIND-BLOWING to be disgusted. The fact that our bodies are smart enough to communicate to each other in ways that we can’t even fathom is mind boggling. It makes me ask, WHAT ELSE DON’T I KNOW ABOUT MY BODY?

Oh God! I’m starting to get paranoid.

{Does quick Google search}

Ah, it’s too overwhelming. I don’t know the things I DON’T know!  What do I even ask Google? HELP!


*Takes deep breath!*

If you want to learn something seriously amazing, I would encourage you to read the full article – it had me shaking my head in agreement, busting out laughing a few times, and also made me feel proud to be a breastfeeding mama.  Then come back and comment so we can discuss.
