  • 1. My older sister (who has no kids) is uncomfortable when I say "breastfeeding" she perfers that I say "nursing" instead, what do you think?
    personal preference, I am breastfeeding my 5 month old and prefer to say nursing more often than not

    2. Does sugar pass through breaskmilk and can it harm my baby?
    it does, but shouldn't harm baby. if baby is sensitive to sugar they might be a little hyper though

    3. Can my baby become diabetic from breastmilk?
    nursing actually lessens the chance of diabetes over the child's lifetime. lessens the chance of obesity, ear infections, and all kinds of other ailments and illnesses.

    4. Can a baby taste/know the difference in breastmilk from the mother and another women?
    I would assume so since your body chemistry's would be different, so my guess is that even if it was pumped baby would be able to tell.

  • 1) there's gonna be many things you & sis don't agree on, tell her you'll call it whatever you want to! Never understand why ppl get so wierded out by the most natural act on earth!
    2) every thing you put into your body is passed thru the breastmilk, your body filters it though & the sugars won't harm the baby
    3) what rihanna said
    4) yup

  • She can call it whatever she wants. I don't think sugar will affect your milk, and no, a baby cannot become diabetic from your milk. I do believe they would be able to notice a difference between different peoples milk though.

  • 1. You can adjust your language for her comfort.
    Or you can force her to get over it. Your call...

    2. Your body will process your intake and create perfect nourishment.

    3. Breastmilk is wonderful to help prevent/avoid diabetes.

    4. I will expect so.
