My SO has a problem with my 5yo son seeing me breastfeed the baby. Personally I don't have an issue as long as he's not sittin there staring at me or something. Its a natural beautiful part of life and I've taken the approach of acting like its no big deal.. cause I didn't think it was. My son knows what I'm doibg and hasn't acted weird about it. He was curious at first and I just explained it to him. Anyways tonight my SO said (in front of my son) that it wasn't appropriate for him to watch his baby sister suck on her moms tits. And also said something about it being a problem if he talked about it at school? I just sat there like wow you have got to be kidding... I'm upset for one that he made it sound like a bad thing and called my breasts tits in front of my son. It seriously made me feel pissed of and heart broken at the same time. I decided to make sure I'm covered up around my son to keep my SO off my back and to have a private convo with my son to explain to him that there is nothing wrong with breastfeeding and that's what mommies are supposed to do.
I would like to know your take on this. How do you feel about your kids watching you nurse?
Also, my baby doesn't look at me while I nurse her and I was looking forward to that connection. Anyone else have that issue? Really, she doesnt look at anyone, she just kinda stares and looks around at other stuff, mainly invisible stuff? Lol. She reacts but doesn't look at peoples FACES
