Breast feeders.

Why do you get so offended if someone uses the word "titty" when referring to breast feeding, but in any reply I see about BFing you guys are all "my boob this" or "my baby is a boob baby". What in your mind makes "titty" so much worse than boob? Maybe I get offended by the term "boob"

Im not offened by it. That's what hubs calls them but I did make him use 'boobie' when she got a little older. I didn't want her running around saying 'titty' lol.

I don't care what you call them. I don't call them that in front of ds though bc I don't want him to pick it up.

It's not offensive, but it's usually used in an attempt to make breastfeeding sound wrong or gross. Example- your kid is too old to be on your tit.
It just sounds like it's something disgusting.
I usually disregard the opinion that follows the word, it's typically uneducated or ridiculous.

This.

And because it's just crude, as is the word "boob". It's slang.

They are breasts, and I teach my children that they are called "breasts".
