  1. I breast fed for 6 months, and never experienced anything marillia is talking about. No extreme pain or anger. I experienced this absolute feeling of peace and euphoria almost. Now I know some women do have pain breastfeeding, but usually it's because there's some sort of infection or complication. At least that's what I've always heard anyways. I almost get the feeling she's just not enjoying the process, but is forcing herself to do it out of pride, or the drive to fulfill this certain standard of what a mother should be doing with their baby. Just my opinion though.

  2. that blond lady who had infected stitches….at some point she said: next time I'm having a C-sec…. ehm…. that'll also require stitches….. dumb woman

  3. “Breast is best”
    Yeah well if you’re partner is having trouble breastfeeding then formula is the only other way you moron!
    My son COULDN’T breastfeed due to not being able to latch on at all.

    This guy’s ignorance makes me so bloody mad!

  4. Thank God for the nurse who taught me how to breastfeed. The breastfeeding consultant was bitchy and I was trying to figure it out on my own.

    As for the show..The guy was a jerk to tell his wife what to do even if he did have good intentions. She needed someone to say “you’re doing a good job, you’ll get it”

  5. It's easy to say "you'll sleep again, you'll get to sleep again in a minute" when YOU get to sleep all day and have help. She obviously didn't experience the full effect of early motherhood sleep deprivation

  6. It is funny how people are always so afraid of how painful that childbirth will be that they submit to being drugged and increasing their chances of interventions and complications. They then suffer more postpartum pain due to injures than if they had just learned natural relaxation techniques to avoid pain in childbirth and reduce chances of complications, injuries, and pain in the aftermath.

    I have had a pain free birth before using hypnobirthing and bradley and had a wonderful labor and postpartum!

  7. It’s hard for any guy to truly feel empathetic to a new mother, because they can’t have babies so it’s better for them to have lots of patients and understanding towards their wives. Did that guy think that having a baby was going to be easy on a woman’s body or something? Or maybe that there would be little to no responsibility being a parent?

  8. I definitely see why people were so annoyed with Marilia. She made sleep deprivation seem like this tiny frustration when it really isn't. Having a round the clock responsibility with few to no breaks that aren't set all while being absolutely exhausted is chaos. It effects your mood, your appetite, your judgment. No matter how much you enjoy something, it 100x harder to enjoy it when you're so tired you can barely see straight. Marilia needs to relax on her judgment. She was put in a very ideal situation that a lot of parents never have. She had 24/7 care from multiple experienced people for the first 2 1/2 months. She had absolutely no room to talk on that subject. Long term sleep deprivation is something you will never know the extent of unless you've been through it or are going through it. She was one of my favorites in the first episode but this episode she annoyed the hell out of me. She was very uppity and judging on that subject. That's why I snorted when she was talking about how irrationally upset she got with the painful breastfeeding. It's like "what happened to the you should be happy to enjoy your baby?" Imagine being sleep deprived on top of having breastfeeding woes. That "perfect mom, perfect family, positive to a fault" attitude she had left quickly and humbled her at least a little bit. You can be positive and still acknowledge frustration- it's called being reasonably human.

  9. I was 14 when my nephew was born. He complete changed my perspective on life honestly. I love that boy to death he’s at my house everyday and he’s really all I need I am perfectly fine having no kids as long as I have my nephew 😍

  10. Okay, so here's the thing…: If you can't sit feeding your baby, then lie down and feed him! We haven't been shown? How hard is it? Get yourself on your side, baby on the side next to you, get your breast out and hold the nipple close to his mouth. Done! Why do you need a midwife to tell you that? And then most women CAN breastfeed, but to be able to produce (enough) milk you need to have the baby latch on and suck!!! Demand determines supply. Easy as that.

  11. I had my first baby when I was 21
    Then my second at 24
    Then my third at 26
    I am 31 now and my best advice is to really look after yourself
    I might have another baby in the future but 3 is great 👍
    some people say that I had my babies too young, but I wouldn't have it any other way
    I am very lucky that I have a very loving and hard working husband who helps me through the tough times

  12. I'm jealous of the Brazilian mom's supportive family. My mom lives 20 mins away. My mother in law lives 15 mins away. The most either of them has done since I had my 3rd baby was being one meal by. It's been damn hard and I have resentful feelings about it. No sleep, my husband had to go back to work after 4 days, I have a 2 year old boy and 5 year old girl too. Also dealing with PPD. She's very lucky to have that support.

  13. That Brazilian Mom – "you're getting sleep in a minute". Words of someone who IS getting sleep! haha
    As a parent who wasn't as lucky as her to have round the clock babysitters for over a month I can testify that prolonged sleep deprivation is TORTURE and will literally drive you crazy. Rationalization doesn't work when you're basically a zombie.
