Bec Judd shares how painful breastfeeding really was for her

For anyone who found breastfeeding painful, you’re not the only one! In fact mum-of-four Bec Judd recently revealed her excruciating experience!

The author, TV and radio presenter shared a picture on her radio show, The 3pm Pick Up‘s Facebook page of her MASSIVE boobs  following the birth of her first son, Oscar.

“I look like Dolly Parton, don’t I, on steroids. I was skinny arms and legs and bazookas out to here,” Bec says.

Bec Judd tells all about breastfeeding!

The above photo is a sneak peek into her new book, The Baby Bible which features pictures and stories from her pregnancies.

Speaking to News.com.au, Bec Judd chatted about how much her body changed when her milk came in.

“I couldn’t believe when they came in, this picture was taken about day four and I remember as it was coming in I could feel these boobs, they were getting so hot and tingly,” she said.

 

Bec went on to say that the pain when her milk came was so painful, worse than when her epidural wore off!

“I cried all night and my mum was there and my mum started crying because she said ‘you’re hurting so much and I don’t know what to do, like I never had this when my milk came in.’ She ran and got me some cabbage leaves and I was on all the drugs for it and I bawled for about two days,” said the mum-of-four.

Bec and AFL husband Chris Judd are parents to Oscar, 7, Billie, 4 and one-year old twins Darcy and Tom.
