If you EBF your boy, did he end up being a mama's boy? Daddy's boy? both? How long did you breastfeed? How old is your child now?

Honestly I think boys in general breastfed or not tend to be mama's boys until they are around age 2-3 when they start wanting to do more of the things daddy does.

My first I EBF for 7 1/2 months...had to quit because I was working and was having pumping issues at work (another story) and he really could have cared less because he thought the bottle was just dandy. He was a total Daddy's boy from birth, though. My 2nd just weaned at 14 months...complete Momma's boy, though Daddy possesses what we call "the magic shoulder" and is the absolute best at getting a nap out of the kid! :)

EBF for 6 months, mixed feed till 10 months, and formula only from 10-12 months. He is pretty equal with both of us, but more a mama's boy since I'm with him more. He does love being with his daddy when he is home, though.

I EBF Sebastian for 1 year, he is almost 2 1/2 yrs now and is a mommy and daddy's boy. He throws a fit when my husband leaves to go somewhere and doesn't take him with. He cuddles with me in the mornings though, daddy won't due for that.

I EBFed for 9 months. Even before I was done EBFing, he was already a daddy's boy. :-(



He's 17 months now, and all about daddy.

Kolter is a total mama's boy and he only BF for 3 months. (he's 2.5 years now) Liam is EBF going on 4 months....we def. have a closer bond since i stay home with him too. I hope he stays a mama's boy even as he gets older. :-)
