  • Wow...I don't know how you feel as I never thought that myself. I took a breastfeeding class and learned a lot. I think that once your baby is here you will get over feeling that way, because is nothing sexual about a nursing baby.

  • no it isnt incest. thats why females have breasts. cows have them, dogs and cats have them, and humans have them...to feed our offspring! breastfeeding releases a lot of seritonin too!

  • If it really weirds you out don't BF. I BF my first and not my 2nd. They are 8 & 9. Their are sick equal amounts of time (not often), they are BOTH A B honor roll kids. You are not forever altering the life of your child b/c you don't BF. Anyone who who jumps down your throat about this a BF crazy and best to be ignored. There are benefits of bonding if it works for you but on that I held my babies close when I bottle fed so meh. Do some more research and see how you feel. Bottom line its YOUR body so you get to CHOOSE.
