Oh, Chrissy, how we love you. You give us so much life through your honesty and ability to "say it like you mean it." (Sorry, Wendy, need to borrow this phrase from ya.) Chrissy Teigen is a 30-year-old wife (she is a legend, Mrs. John Legend to be exact) and mommy BFF in our head who keeps it real -- especially when it comes to breastfeeding.

If you don't follow Chrissy online, honey, you're seriously missing out. She's soo funny and isn't afraid to get candid -- and take it there. The little nuggets Mom shares with the world about 1-month-old daughter Luna are pure gold.

Here's just a taste of some of the realities Chrissy Teigen has experienced on her breastfeeding journey.

1. Moms will pump anywhere -- including a bathroom floor

Did you ever find yourself in a public bathroom pumping because you needed to keep up with your LO's nursing demands? Chrissy did, and gave no Fs about sharing it on her Snapchat.

2. Tanning and breast pumps don't always mix

Speaking of pumping, have you ever tried to do that and something else at the same time? Yeah, it doesn't always go according to plan.

(Lol!)

3. Breastfeeding takes a village

And, how about that time Chrissy Teigen looked glam breastfeeding while working? Sometimes, it does take a village to get 'er done. (Breastfeeding on the go is sometimes your only option!) Here's another priceless Chrissy Teigen Snapchat moment.

4. Nursing your baby can affect your social calendar

Just in case you're wondering, Chrissy wasn't headed to an award show or anything. She's too busy being a "walking boob" for all that -- lol!

5. You're going to feel like a "cow" at times, and that's okay

Hopefully you had friends and loved ones giving you the scoop on being a new mom. There's just way too much that can happen that no one tells you about -- including being a liquid gold supplier 24/7. During an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Chrissy Teigen compared breastfeeding to feeling like a cow, a feeling that's oh-so-real:

You're kinda breastfeeding for like, 10 hours a day, total. They  just use you for your milk, and you feel like you are just a cow all day. You have to work your entire day around getting [your baby] all the nourishment she needs, because [babies are] just little animals.

You guys heard [Luna]. She took one look at me, and, instead of being like, "Oh, good, Mom's here," she was like, "Ahhh, I'm a milk monster! Want. Milk. All. The. Time."

Yas! Gon' ahead and testify, girl.

As a fellow mom, who's coming to the end of her breastfeeding journey, I can't help but laugh with Chrissy Teigen. It's never some easy thing, and always takes a series of moving parts in order to come together. Kudos to Chrissy for poking a little fun at it while trying to hang on and enjoy the ride.

Thanks so much for your honesty, Chrissy!
