If you’re a mother who’s experienced pain while breastfeeding, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi knows exactly how you feel.
While speaking to her Podcast One listeners Tuesday, the 26-year-old MTV reality star opened up about her first days with baby girl Giovanna, who was born last Friday, Sept. 26.
Naturally, she talked about breastfeeding.
“My boobs are killing me. I feel like my nipples are going to fall off,” she said.

There’s a visual!
When she gave birth to son Lorenzo two years ago, she pumped, so nursing her daughter is not a feeling she’s accustomed to.
“With Lorenzo, I didn’t actually latch on. I just did the pump, so it didn’t hurt that bad. But with Giovanna, I tried to latch on at the hospital and she latched on right away. So I said, ‘You know what? :Let me just do this until I get my milk in and then I’ll just go straight to pumping, but Giovanna has been on my boob every single hour for the past four days, and my nipple is going to fall off. I can’t feel it! It’s so painful, but I gotta do what I gotta do because I feel like my breast milk is the best milk for my baby.”
Was that not said in the most Snooki way possible?

The Jersey Shore alum also said she’s “trying to recover from pushing a baby out of my vag,” sharing “it’s just so sore down there and my boobies are going to fall off, but it’s all worth it.”
And there you have it, folks.
