    Screwy breastfeeding

    Advertisements
    Ok- I know this may get heated but I have to know

    What is "gross" about breastfeeding? I always hear people talk about how gross it is and I just dont get it? I was out with a girl today and she told me that she would never BF because it is nasty.

    Thoughts?

    I have 0 human children so I doubt my opinion matters, but I do not find
    anything gross or nasty about bfing. I plan to bf my own children for as long
    as I am able.

    Some people associate boobs as a sexual part of the body. I know a LOT of young mothers who would not let their baby BF. I think it's just the maturity level of the person.

    I just cannot understand why someone would think that a baby eating even from a boob is gross, but you are right it is the maturity level of the person

    It used to really upset me that people felt that way. Not so much anymore, I know I'm doing what's best for my girls & that's all that matters

    I'm on that thinks that it's gross for MYSELF to do it.

    I have NO problems, nor do I find it gross when others do it.

    I ... call me selfish, but my boobs are my boobs.

    Yes, I know that "they are for feeding your child(ren)", but it just grosses me out to think of my baby sucking on my nipple(s).

    I'm going to BF feed lil' bebe for the first week so she can get that clear stuff, and then after that, I'm done.

    ETA: I don't look at boobs as sexual. I just don't like boobs, period.

    I have no children, but when I do have kids I am going to breastfeed. The only problem I have ever had with it where I thought "ewwww" was when I was at the Mall of America and a woman stopped to breastfeed on of the benches and you could see both of her breasts and everything clearly. I mean...I know breastfeeding is natural, but I don't want to see someone's breast while they are feeding.

    Give it a little more time than a week, you might change your mind. Just my 2 cents based on experience.

    I don't plan to brestfeed because the idea of anyone, even my baby, slurping on any one of my body parts grosses me out. Its just the mouth, and the spit, and ugh...
