Don't laugh at me, but after four years in the nursery I am kind of burnt out on babies. It could be that my own kids' crying at home is enough for me, but come five a.m. when I have eight babies that all need to eat at once and all need to have blood drawn and have hearing tests done and vaccines given, I get to feeling like I want to run screaming down the hall! I too, have a strong desire to help moms breastfeed, but I really don't get a whole lot of time to do so, because I am trapped in the nursery by myself and have to beg to come out to go to the bathroom
. Plus, most of my moms don't speak English and when you try to explain the importance of early breastfeeding, they tell you they will do it "when they go home." Babies are a miracle, and can be darn cute, but too many of them all at once all the time gets draining, pretty much like anything else, I guess.
