Let’s be honest: For most of us, breastfeeding isn’t easy. That’s why we’re so thankful for the breastfeeding memes engorging the internet. I mean, these wonderfully funny and sharable words of wisdom are sometimes the only thing that helps us cope when breastfeeding is tricky or uncomfortable or weird or even downright impossible.

With the help of mums who have been there, we learn to laugh instead of cry when breastfeeding doesn’t go quite as planned, and to relish in the moments it does go smoothly. Like when the sweet smell of delicious baby neck causes your let-down to kick in just in time, or that swoony feeling of a tiny hand clutching you as he chugs away.

No matter how easy or hard it is, there are a few things you just can’t understand until you become a breastfeeding mum yourself. These mums, who have written our very favourite breastfeeding memes, totally get it.
