The only issue I have with it is when people call them boobies. That skeeves me.

This is what I was going to say, too. I think what you're doing is WONDERFUL--you're telling her what the different parts of the body are for...not gross at all.

But I did wonder, since you're making the extra effort, why you didn't refer to them by their correct name? Not meant to be a flame at all (and trust me, I still get the heebys when I tell my DD, "Yes, that's your brother's penis Chat Icon). But no nicknames around here.

But, it could just be that I'm weird about that stuff...nothing bothers me more than when a woman says she's "Preggo". Or better yet, "Prego". Chat Icon Chat Icon Chat Icon

I too thought the same. It just seems very contradictory to me to want her to know what they do yet use a slang term like boobies. If she can talk about what they do and what they are for, then why not be technical and also teach her to refer to them as breasts, not boobies?

People have a lot of hang-ups about BFing. I think by talking to your DD about it, you are (hopefully) preventing her from having a hang-up about it as well. Tell your mom and your sister to shush.

It's NOT gross at all. Chat Icon

ITA and I find it a little weird that they think it's gross. Would they prefer you tell your daughter that boobies are for motor-boating? Chat Icon

LOL only because I hate the word breasts LOL She knows they are breasts I just really hate saying it so I just say boobs when speaking to her.

Re: My mom and sisters think...BF related

Thanks everyone, I am so happy to see so many people agree with me on this. My mom is totally pro BFing but for some reason this bothers her. I guess she just doesn't like that I talk about breasts at all to her, KWIM? She thinks there is no reason for it but DD did see me nurse DS and pump so I do see a reason for it. Rest assured, we don't talk about this all day long just when I am getting out of the shower or something.

I also make sure that I do let her know that they are private. We actually refer to private areas as "bathing suit areas". That way she always remembers that everything covered by her bathing suit is only for her to see and touch.

I think there is nothing wrong with what you tell DD and I tell my nieces the same thing when they watch me BF Sienna. I plan on teaching Sienna the same thing because there is no reason why anyone should feel grossed out or ashamed of BFing. I think it is sad that breasts are viewed basically only as sexual and not as utilitarian as well.



This!



ITA-it confused me that they said it is "gross" What could be less gross? I think Bf'ing is beautiful!
