Does breastfeeding a boy longer than one year make him a 'boob guy'?

My DH says it will. I don't really think so but what do you think.

  • "All guys are boob guys IMO! "

    Ditto! Ask your dh if he is a boob guy and if he was breastfed longer than a year.

  • Sure, and if he uses a urinal and sees other guys penis' at that age, he will be gay. As if a kid can remember. Besides, who cares if it does? Would he rather you so him your vagina and make him a vagina guy? LOL

  • And your husband has a PROBLEM with that?

    Despite that...he's wrong.

  • No. I believe it's the other way around. In my informal polls (LOL) the formula fed guys were boob men and the breastfed guys didn't care really and tended to go more for legs or butts. My husband was formula fed and loves boobs.

  • If that makes you a boob guy, I hate to think what makes a man a butt guy.

  • I personally think it's quite the opposite... men who were weaned early or never breastfed would probably have more of a boob obsession because they never got to experience it as a child... Never seen any research, but just my little theory.

    And my older son was nursed to 2.5 (he's 4 now) and he could care less about boobs... He gets mad at me sometimes when I'm trying to feed his brother and he wants to play with him "mooom, dean doesn't want nilk, put the boob away!!". I know he's only four and it's not indicative of how he will feel when he hits puberty.

    Also, they aren't obsessed with maternal boobs.... they don't lust after their mothers, or any mothers (really, unless it's some weird fetish)... they lust after the girls in the beer and victorias secret ads. The blatant display of sex thats shoved down their throats from a young age. Nursing doesn't make a guy a boob man... the media does.
