Conversation between Bad Mummy and friend.

Y: Does your baby still wake up for night feeds?

Me: Yes. At least I think so. He sleeps in a cot next to me but when I wake up in the morning, he's sleeping in my bed. I can't remember carrying him over, but I'm assuming I carried him over to feed him in the middle of the night.

Y: So you feed him and both of you fall asleep together?

Me: Yes, I think so.

Y: So you just latch him on and he will just drink on his own?

Me: Yes, I think so.

Y: So what happens? Does he unlatch himself when he's full? Or what?

Me: I have no idea. Maybe he unlatches himself, or maybe when he falls asleep, his mouth falls open and my breast falls out. Or maybe when I roll over in my sleep, I yank the breast out from his mouth.

Y: I have seen photos of him. He looks quite sturdy. I assume he's getting enough to eat.

Me: Yes, I hope so.
