While I was pregnant with my son, I decided that I was going to breastfeed instead of using formula since so many medical professionals highly encouraged it. When my son was born, he latched onto my breasts right away and I felt like we had a good thing going on. On the second day, I got worried because his lips were getting really dry and that made me think I was not producing enough liquids from my breasts. We decided to see a lactation consultant the next day.
I'm not sure if it's because of my postpartum or if I'm just uptight but I felt really violated when the lactation consultant started massaging my one of my breasts. I guess that's a part of their job but while I was feeding my son (because I had to show her), she still massaged it while he was latched on. I felt really, really weird. She was an old lady.
