Jenny Mollen has a rep for being extremely candid about pregnancy and motherhood on social media. And of course fans and followers love her for it, because the actress and comedian has a fantastic way of speaking #momlife truths at an impressive rate. Recently, Mollen's been struggling with getting her 9-week-old Lazlo to take her breast over the bottle, and she got super-honest about the issue on her Instagram Stories yesterday, Tuesday, December 4. “[As of] this weekend, Laz has decided … one feeding, he’ll breastfeed, and then the next feeding he’s just like, ‘F— that, give me a bottle,’ ” the 38-year-old, who also shares 3½-year-old son Sid with husband Jason Biggs, explained. "This morning, I pumped because he seemed to be not hungry, but then the minute I was done pumping, he was ravenous and starving and drank every ounce of the breast milk I pumped. So, it’s almost like he’s playing me.” Just two lovers sharing a milkshake A post shared by Jenny Mollen (@jennyandteets2) on Dec 4, 2017 at 7:38pm PST As a result of this feeding roller coaster, Mollen revealed she's feeling "really sad" and "super rejected by" her L.O. “I feel like … he likes his milk like he likes his women: easy, with big nipples,” she mused cheekily. “I don’t know anybody who has bigger nipples than I do right now except a bottle.

I can have bottles whenever I want, on tap, as much as my heart desires, with free-flowing nipples and no drama from you, so what do you think I’m gonna choose?’" What do you do when you plan a bath for your husband but then the real man of your dreams walks in? A post shared by Jenny Mollen (@jennyandteets2) on Dec 2, 2017 at 12:59pm PST Later in the day, it seemd Mollen's morale was on the mend after formulating a game plan, which she shared with followers. “The doctor told me I should give [Lazlo] size 2 nipples because apparently it’ll be faster for him to drink, but why would I want it to be faster for him to drink?
