And this is why breasfeeding is dangerous.

Vee: I just almost smothered our child just now.

Jay: What?!

Vee: Yeah. My boob’s in his mouth, see, and then I leant over to bite his nails and realised that the rest of my boob was blocking his nose. Oops.

Jay: Oh, my god. [Typing]… I just blogged that.

Vee: Oh. [Stares thoughtfully] Well, can you add that I can’t help it? They’re G-cups now. They’re a bit out of control.

Jay: OK. And would you like to share anything else with the IVP?

Vee: I’d like to thank them for their thoughtful comments on my last post.

Jay: And mine, too. They’re nice aren’t they, the IVP?

Vee: [Nodding solemnly] Yeah. Proper nice. It’s so good to have people that we can tell stuff to when we can’t tell anyone else.

Jay: Yeah. Like when you have non-bio / other mother / CO-MUM (! I like that!) rage. Or when you nearly suffocate your baby with your G-cup.

  1. thanks, we love you too! i’ve heard of minding you Ps & Qs before, but who knew you were gonna have to watch how you wield your Gs!


  2. lol – been there, done that.

    I’ve been assured she won’t smother (“that’s why their noses are shaped like that”) but, yeah, it sure does look bad sometimes.

    I have to remind myself if she’s still sucking, she’s probably still breathing, and probably not too bothered by it.


  3. ha ha ha!!
    What is so beyond funny is that a couple of us were JUST talking about this on the IVP boards.
    I still can’t believe that people can do things while nursing as I need one hand to hold his head and the other to pull my ta ta’s from his airway so he can breathe. I wonder if I can tape them back somehow….


  4. you guys crack me up!

    I am a just a DD these days, and I have nearly smothered JAG a few times! Usually when leaning over to hit play or pause on the portable DVD player I use to entertain myself while she drowsily drains my mommy juice.

    TOO FUNNY!!! Thanks for sharing and having a wonderful laugh this morning 🙂


  7. You guys are so funny… totally makes me laugh… Vee: do you have any nursing bra advice for my similarly endowed chest??

    BFing was a 6-handed job for me early on with the Gs. I think they’re still bigger than his head.




  10. Ok, I’m now going to change every “co-mom” in my book to “co-MUM!” 🙂
