why are so many on this site

so freaked out about nudity. What is it that makes them think that seeing someone naked will automatically turn you into a raving pedophile. come on people are freaked out because mommy co sleeps semi naked with THEIR KIDS. Seriously? Are some of you so overly sexualized that you don't realize the human form in it's natural state is not shameful, disgusting, or sexual but simply NATURAL. it's how you were born. If it's so nasty why are we born sans a loin cloths. Seriously what is the deal

  • I don't care what other people do. Personally it just makes me uncomfortable to be naked around my kid. Natural or not I'm not comfortable with it and if I'm not comfortable with it I'm not going to do it. I could care less if other people sleep, eat, walk, run, jump, clean, cook, or WHATEVER while naked. It's just not for me.

  • It doesn't bother me at all. But I know my friend had a problem with it when her son turned about 2 1/2, he started asking questions, when he would walk in on his mom changing, and it made her uncomfortable.

    Thankfully I have a girl, so if she ever starts asking questions, they will be a lot easier to answer.. as of now she is 14 months old, and I still take a bath with her, because it saves us both time, and less worry about accidents, etc.

  • I plan on sleeping with a nursing bra and booty shorts when our LO gets here. I am too hot natured and it'll be easier to BF my LO.

  • also there is a proper way and improper way to do it. I know of a 2 or 3 YO girl that finally noticed her daddy's penis in the shower one day and pulled on it..(ROFL) since then..he would still take showers with her, but would wear swim shorts.(that was obviously the proper thing to do since she noticed it.) you know.. you just have to use discretion as the LO's get older

  • I think it's pretty unfortunate that so many people are freaked out by this. Especially when it comes to breastfeeding! I'm the oldest of 7 kids and our family has never had any problem with being uncomfortable with nudity. I have 6 year old twin brothers and when my daughter was born, I talked to my mom about nursing around them. We agreed that it was perfectly ok, it shows them that breasts serve a very important role in taking care of a baby. They're actually pretty funny about it. They're curious about what's going on and ask questions, but are still very respectful.
