After welcoming her first child in October, Maddi Wright is sharing a major realization: she regrets breastfeeding.
Maddi, who was on an Australian reality show with her husband, Lloyd, shared on Instagram what she has learned since ending her breastfeeding journey. "I wish I never breastfed my baby. A strong statement and many would disagree but here's why ... three weeks post stopping breastfeeding with my 4-month-old I am a completely different person," she wrote.
She continues to explain why no longer nursing was the right decision for her, making her feel like a better mother and wife:
"I have more energy. I actually have gaps where bub is NOT on my body so I get to miss him a little. I have more time for my other son. I am more affectionate towards my husband. I don't dread going out in public. I enjoy my clothes again as I'm not leaking everywhere or having to wear uncomfortable maternity bras. I'm able to leave the house by myself without getting anxiety. I'm able to go to the gym again.
I know I will cop a lot of negative comments about this post but I think it's important for moms to know that they have choices. There are so many different ways to be a mom. But what many moms forget is that MOM HAS TO BE HAPPY TOO."
