I'm addicted to the way my babies smells. Is it just all babies or only breastfed babies. Mommies who formula feed do you think your baby smells good? Do any of you breast feeding mommies think your baby doesn't smell so great?

I breastfeed. No smelly poop, and they smell sweet.

Formula fed babies smell horrible to me. They smell like formula, and their poop/spit up is terrible.

My dd was/is still breastfed. She always had a natural sweet milky smell to her. And before any solids were introduced, her poops always smelled sweet too lol. I miss her breastmilk-only poops!

That is hilarious, my little man is BF and hubby says it smells like popcorn as well hahaha. I don't mind the smell either, it kind of smells like vanilla oddly.

hahaha, I have said that too! When you breastfeed those diaper pails are useless, the smell isn't strong at all. I will fill up a bag of diapers and not even smell it.

I could smell my baby all day. Even stinky diapers smell sweet (still smell like poop, mind you, but sweet poop)! Well, now that he has started on some solids, they are getting to smell more like normal poop. Beyond that, if I need a pick me up, I just sniff him. It causes a hormone interaction and causes the release of Oxytocin! : )
