You may need some nipple cream, a breast pump, and a few other odds and ends to store your milk, but you may not. Wait and see. And see chapter 16 on how to feed your baby. • If you’re bottlefeeding, you’ll need bottles, nipples, formula, and bottle cleaners.

As I’ve said, one of the best reasons to delay spreading the news is to keep your experience all to yourself for a while. But other reasons include: • You don’t want to deal with other peoples’ reactions. • You’re embarrassed or afraid you’ll be judged or teased (“What? ”) and you’re feeling fragile. • You don’t want your employers to know until you’ve figured out a motherhood-work strategy. • You’re in a bad relationship and don’t want your exit strategy complicated by your partner’s reaction.

Repeat as often as necessary until you feel less distressed, weird, or scared. Don’t feel rushed to do anything other than to take really good care of yourself. Treat yourself gently. Baby yourself, as you will your newborn—because right now, you are your own baby. You are at the beginning of the biggest change in your life, and your ability to embrace this change depends entirely on the level of compassion you give yourself. If you feel like you’re walking in a fog—you are, so embrace it.
