  • It's supposed to smell good. Were you breastfed?

    I tend to sweat more when breastfeeding. With my second I tried not using deodorant as much as possible. He loved the smell of my breastmilk and sweat. He is an adult now and still doesn't mind the smell of sweat. His wife doesn't have to worry about him being turned off by sweat. We live in Tucson where it is hot hot hot. Coming from Indiana we sweat all the time.

  • no i mean i love the smell on me. I know my son likes it cuz he always roots down there even if hes not hungry I was wondering if it was weird for me to like it so much. Its like a perfume that I cant get enough of.

  • Nope, Jules. You're just weird. Lol. JK. I didn't breast feed long enough to give you an answer. Maybe next time.

    However, I love the "new baby" smell. If they could bottle that and the "new car" smell, they'd make a fortune.
