Let’s talk about sex!
Now that I have your attention — a dad recently spoke out saying that extended breastfeeding is a turn-off. James Braly wrote on the New York Times Motherlode blog that seeing his wife nurse their 5-year-old son made him lose his appetite, and not just for dinner. Mr. Braly is a brave man, I’ll say that!

Dads and Breastfeeding
I was lucky enough to have an extremely supportive husband to see me through five children and I was so distracted and worried about caring for my children that I didn’t even think to ask him what he thought about my nursing habits. This article really got me thinking about dads and their views on breastfeeding. Should their opinions matter when it comes to when you breastfeed, either in the house or in public? Do fathers have the right to tell their wife to nurse his children even if she herself is opposed to breastfeeding for whatever reason? How would you Dads feel if Moms continued breastfeeding older children, as in older than 3 or 4? This is a super interesting debate and I would really love to hear what you (especially dads!) have to say on the issue!
