It’s an excuse to sit on your ass!
As a mom we always need an excuse to actually sit down. The work is endless and we always feel like we should be doing something. Sometimes we need an excuse to be able to sit down and chill out for a while. Breastfeeding is a great reason to be lazy and catch up on all of our Netflix shows! You can also use sentences like, “Hey babe can you make dinner, I can’t get up from feeding the baby right now”.
You don’t have to make a bottle in the middle of the night.
Because we all know that every minute of sleep with a baby is precious. Who wants to spend time walking to the kitchen and fixing the baby a bottle, when you can just roll over and pop a boob in their mouth?
There are no bottles to wash!
There is nothing I dread more than doing dishes. When you breastfeed, there is no clean up! There are no bottles to wash, no sour milk lying around stinking up the house. Less time in front of the sink is always a plus to me. Honestly, this is probably my number one reason why I breastfeed. Anything that can save me time from cleaning!
You never run out!
There is never a panic to run to the store to pick up more milk for the baby. You are always guaranteed to have breastmilk on tap, and it’s always the perfect temperature 🙂
It’s the perfect getaway!
You can excuse yourself from an awful conversation or a lame party, and squirrel yourself away, and feed the baby while you check social media!
It burns calories!
They say breastfeeding burns up to 500 calories a day!! That means you are burning off 2 whole donuts worth of calories by sitting literally sitting on your butt! Doesn’t get better than that!
Of course there are a lot of health reasons why breastfeeding is great for your baby. That’s all well and good, but as a lazy mom, I love anything that saves me time and money!
