If you breastfed your baby, did your Dh/So find it disgusting?

I ask this question because my good friend brestfeeds her 6 month old, and says that she has to go ot of the room from her dh to do it, because he thinks its gross.

I thought that was a little odd, but wondered if any other moms encountered the same thing?

  • Nope. My dh even went to my breastfeeding class with me when we were pregnant with our first, he thought it was a little weird at first being there but by the end of the class he was the one asking most of the questions, lol. So needless to say he has been very supportive and actually helpful at times. I'm sorry your friend is dealing with that attitude from her dh, it's hard enough dealing with the negative spin on it from outsiders point of view I'm sure it's harder when you don't even have the support of your dh.

  • No, my dh was thrilled that I was willing to do something that is so beneficial to our baby.

  • No, if anything my dh LOVED it. Like it made me more womanly. LOL IDK... I think it is weird in our culture that people can not separate breast as sexual objects from feeding devices.

  • No he was very supportive and joked about how well our kids were fed because of how big my breasts grew! It's atitudes like your friend's husbands that make some women not want to breastfeed when they otherwise would have.
