and he is constantly asking to breastfeed

I never breastfed him but he sees me bfing his little sister all the time. 

I really dont know what to make of him asking. my mom bf my sister until she was five. She tells me to let him try it.Ireally dont know. Itjust feels odd to me.

If your not comfortable you could pump and let him try it. It'll likely lessen his curiosity.

I dont have a pump. I could hand express it I guess.

Actually, let him try. He will most likely look at you funny and then run off. That's what happens most often.

This has nothing really to do with breastfeeding and everything to do with wanting attention the baby is getting. Nothing really to worry about here; I'd be more concerned if he DIDN'T do this.

in a way I want to because he is my baby.Abigail is technically a baby but he is my boy and he is special to me in a special way that my daughters arent.
