I was speaking to a friend a while back about how we all view our b**bs.
She sees b**bs as sexual objects, purely for bedroom 'entertainment' and for that reason isn't comfortable with breastfeeding, getting them out to feed and finds it strange that I breastfeed and can openly feed my baby in front of her.
I see my b**bs as food for my son and am completely comfortable with feeding him, I can see how they can be sexual objects but IMO they are originally there for feeding a baby, especially since having DS. I find it strange that she doesn't see them as something to feed an infant as that is what they are actually designed for.
Just wondering how many women share either opinion.

They exist for the purpose of feeding babies.



That doesn't mean they cannot be used in a sexual way, for pleasure, whatever.



The fact that she can't see that the two are completely unrelated is weird

Before having my daughter, I saw them both ways. Now that I'm nursing, I see them ONLY as food for my baby. It kind of grosses me out when SO tries to sexually touch my b**bs. I get this feeling like...No :? those aren't fot you. I'm confident, though, that when I'm done BFing I'll go back to seeing them as both.

Both. Not to mention something to squeeze purely out of boredom. My husband loves them for his purposes, my daughters have used them for feeding and I play with them cause they are there. *shrugs*

I agree. Before DS was born i could see both sides, but now I'm feeding DS I am uncomfortable for them to be used in a sexual way :?

se both but once my baby gets here, the hubby knows they are off limits until we wean her off of breast milk and I don't have milk coming in anymore.

They're both.



It's just some people can't separate one from the other.
