I just went into the shower & was promptly asked by my 4 year old are my boobs that big because they are full of milk (rofl) as we have told her she cant keep poking my boobs etc!! so i then explained well mammys milks not come in yet etc but yes they are getting bigger due to mammy having the baby so they are preparing for me to feed the baby (to which) i was greated with ergh thats gross mammy hahahaha
so i then said well mammy fed you with my boobs too lol she was disgusted haha
have any of you got older children & how did you deal with this???
I have a six year old who isn't really bothered that I am going to breast feed, she has told the midwife only for a bit because she wants to feed baby too
I don't really know how she is going to react with the reality of it though I also feel abit embarrassed how getting them out in front of her or if she takes to much interest I think if you show its not a big deal then she won't make a big deal about it (hopefully)
Do you have any breast feeding friends or a breast feeding group in your area who you could take your little one to visit? Then your little one can have a perve and see that no one is making a big deal out of it because its normal
hhmn i am not sure she's got quite a big mouth & would prob end up embarrasing them haha honestly ;-) i do know 1 mum whos breast feeding but dont wanna just say ooh can i fetch Kate up to you so she can see you breast feeding lol ;-)
my 5 year old daughter has started to touch mine and stroke them. I do tell her not to but she gets comfy watching something and then her hands wander lol, she is very much like DF in that respect HAHA!
I have told them that mummies boobies will make milk for there baby brother to drink, and they get it but they are a bit grossed out at it too, i suppose i have to see if there is any jelousy when the time comes
OMG I have the EXACT same problem with my 4yo son... in the bath he asked me if my boobs were full of milk, I said the same as you did to which he replied 'shall we cut them open to get the milk out'... I explained how it works etc and said when baby Mia comes she gets the milk straight out of my boobs and he asked me to show him how!! The onyl thing I coud think to say was when the baby comes I will show you properly... this seems to have appeased him but he is constantly stroking and poking them. IN PUBLIC as well, I have told him that he isnt to touch them but he does it subconsciously when he is sat on my knee or watching TV!!! What do you do??? xx
