Mum shares funny pic to highlight the challenges of being a breastfeeding mother, “One of the many joys of breastfeeding. I wondered why I got a few stares at the pool that day.”

Zoe Hendrix, who rose to fame on Australia’s “Married at First Sight,” posted a photo in a bikini top.

“MILK JUGS gone uneven,” she wrote in the caption. “One of the many joys of breastfeeding. I wondered why I got a few stares at the pool that day ― awkward!” She also included the hashtags #mymilkshake #bringsallthebabiestotheyard and #normalisebreastfeeding.

The Instagram post received over 4,000 likes and the comments section is filled with responses from mums who can totally feel her pain.

Can you relate to Zoe’s situation?

  • lol i was at a christmas party and was taken to the side and told ever SO politely by another mother that i was leaking. Sure enough my breast pad had shifted and my light pink shirt now had a dark pink wet patch. lol i tried to dry it up as good as i could but the milk leaves behind a “residue” type of stain lol. No-one else seems to noticed it though and i just held bub over that boob to disguise it lol………..oh the joys :)

  • I heard about a breastfeeding Mum who went shopping with an older Mum who had a son about 4 or 5 years old. There was shocked silence when the son asked if it was raining inside. Yes, the breastfeeding Mum had “leaked” so much from one breast that it had soaked through the pad she had on out through her clothes,

  • It happens to most of us, but we usually don’t realise it. Guess we were really meant to feed twins. LOL

  • No noticeable differences for me.

  • I was unable to breast feed. I actually didn’t know this was a thing ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

  • haha, I remember these days-the bigger one would feel like it’s about to explode and if you were lucky, would be leaking everywhere (right through a breast pad)


    • Finding a a breast pad with the right amount of absorbency – always a challenge!
