|Will breastfeeding cause adults to be smaller?|
I know they say that breastfed babies stay small longer, but my nephew is in 6-9 month clothes and he is almost 13 months now. We were trying to decide if this normal, and what the odds are of him becoming a normal size adult. Also, I would like to know if his small size could be because he was introduced regular foods too young. He started teething around 4 months and has been fed adult food since he was about 6 months. If there is any evidence to support whether or not starting on solid foods too early effects size, that'd be great as well.
|I don' t think I would worry about his small size...My breastfed baby is now 12 months old and is in size 12 months so not to much bigger than your nephew she is around 21lbs and she has also been eating adult food since she was around 6 months...I just had her to her DR for her checkup and he said she looks great....just because they are small as a baby doesn't mean anything...I was born 3lbs 2 oz and now at 28 years old I am 5' 7" and around 140-150 lbs.... and all clothes run different too...so the size of his clothes should worry you so much|
|Adult breastfeeding: Yes, as in adults breastfeeding other adults...?|
This seems so strange to me but when I got online to look up breastfeeding when I was prego with my daughter a few months ago, there were hundreds of sites. Is it really this common of a fetish? Is it considered a fetish? Do most people not consider this strange or are there people out there who do it and can you tell me what you get from it?
(Not wanting to judge, just curious)
|All sorts of things turn all sorts of people on, as long as its adults enjoying other adults then its fine by me. I know a guy who has a breastfeeding fetish and if I was lactating I'd probably let him have a go for old times sake lol.|
|How much do you spend on groceries for two adults, one of whom is breastfeeding, per month?|
I am trying to figure out a budget for after my baby comes.
|Depends on where you live. Basically you will want to figure a little bit more than what you are paying now because you should be eating a little more than you are now (unless you are like me who gained nearly 100 lbs while pregnant-- in that case you will be eating much less). If that's not the case then take your current budget and add about $30-$50/ month.|
|How do you feel about adult breastfeeding?|
Yes there are women out there with breast milk that breastfeed other men for sexual favors and stuff like that. There are women that breastfeed their husbands which is disgusting. In New Zealand, there is a brothel where women breastfeed adults.
So how do you feel about that?
|Well, it's not that common, but I suppose it's no different than a woman giving a man a BJ. |
To me, it's gross when done for a sexual favor for a stranger. It seems like it is making a beautiful thing very dirty. However, I feel the same way about people having sex outside of marriage.
I suppose if a husband and wife want to do that, go for it. Breast milk is healthy! Again, sort of weird, but whatever!
|How common is adult breastfeeding?|
I know this subject can be a little taboo, Im just wondering how many people do this....serious answers please.
|My husband love it after our babies were born. after feeding them he would drink from them sometimes for fun.|
is there any problem if i breastfeed adult person?
|The adult consuming the breast milk may gain weight if they consume a lot because there is a lot of fat in breast milk.|
If you are breastfeeding a guy, it would not be good for the guy to have to "compete" as it were with the adult for adequate nutrition. If you are breastfeeding a guy, be sure he/she isn't being deprived.
Otherwise no problem. I'm envious.
|Adult breastfeeding , would you ever do it?|
I was wondering if your BF or Husband (and no one else) wanted to do that eroticly or just for the bonding and intimacy would you actualy do it. Im not talking about the breastfeeding fetish called "lactophilia". NON fetish like' , adult breastfeeding. Any thoughts.
|Since the European Middle Ages a multitude of subliminally erotic visionary experiences of saints have been passed on in which breastfeeding plays a major role. One prominent example is the Lactatio of Saint Bernard of Clairvaux. Generally speaking this was a rather strong taboo, and it can be concluded that an adult man suckling for milk is in contradiction to well established images of masculinity.|
There exists a very old story mostly called "Roman Charity" (or caritas romana). This story is most known from old paintings showing a young woman nourishing an old man who is imprisoned by suckling him.
The story comes from the Roman writer Valerius Maximus in the year 14 AD - 37 AD. In about AD 1362 the story was retold by the famous writer Giovanni Boccaccio. After Boccaccio hundreds or possibly thousands of paintings were created, which tell the story.
Primarily, the story tells of a conflict. An existing taboo (implied incest and adult breastfeeding of a woman's milk) or saving a life by breaking the taboo. In this aspect there is no erotic focus to the story.
Most interesting in context of erotic lactation isn't the fact of nourishing a man from a woman's breast. More interesting is the following affair: Valerius Maximus tells two stories, not one only. There's first a long elaborated story with a woman breastfeeding her mother, which is followed by a very short story with a woman breastfeeding her father. The second father-daughter story in fact consists of one sentence only. 1500 years later Boccaccio retells the (first) mother-daughter story only and doesn't mention the father-daughter story. Nevertheless nearly all "caritas romana" oil paintings and drawings show the father-daughter story only. Many 'Caritas Romana' works have a clear erotical meaning, perceptible on needless touches, extensive body contact, embracings, nudity and other attributes such as glance contact, kind of glance and so on, which are not indeed necessary to emphasize a charitable meaning.
