Breastfeeding

Five fabulous things to do when you stop breastfeeding

Breastfeeding can be hard, painful and frustrating, but it’s also incredibly special and once you get the hang of it you cherish those quiet moments with your little one.

However, eventually you will stop breastfeeding and that’s when you can embrace your newfound freedom and go a little nuts!

There are plenty of things you can do once you stop breastfeeding but the most exciting thing of all is what you boobs are now YOURS again! YESS!

Five fabulous things to do when you get your boobs back:

1. Cause I’m free, to do what I want

Enjoy going out by yourself for more than two hours without having to rush back because bub wants a booby fix. You will start feeling the joys of having your breasts back to yourself and while you’re out, why not get a massage?

2. See you later maternity bras

Throw away those breast pads and maternity bras that have been a part of your daily routine for the past few months or years. Oh the freedom your boobs will feel! No more annoying pads and no more bras that pop open at the front.

Tip: your boobs will change shape after breastfeeding so this is the perfect time to have your bra size measured and start fresh with a whole new bra shopping spree.

3. Hit the shops

Speaking of shopping, your clothing purchases will no longer have to go through the ‘how easy can I pop a boob out in this’ test. Your wardrobe options have now expanded overnight! Bye bye, nursing wear. Hello normal fashion!

4. Treat your palate to a taste sensation

Eat that dairy and spicy food, ladies! So your baby or toddler had a dairy intolerance or spicy food gave them an upset stomach? You’ve been throwing down that soy milk for months and drool every time you go through the dairy aisle? Dreaming about a yummy hot curry? Girl, now is the time! Get on that ASAP!

Try our yummy Chilli Prawn Pad Thai recipe!

5. Indulge in a drink or two

Wine. Cocktails. Alcoholic beverages. No more mocktails for you! No longer will you have to fantasise about that glass of wine at wine o’clock and no more soda waters with lemon wedges when you go out on the town with the girls.

You can now slowly start enjoying a drink here and there without having to worry about the effects it may have on your breast milk. We do encourage a slow introduction, because chances are it’s been a while and that one drink is going to hit you for six. Drink safely and enjoy!
