A Child’s View Of Breastfeeding

Scenario: my 5-year old son is sitting at the table eating, without a shirt on. He looks down at his chest, laughs and says “Look at my nipple, hahhaha. Why do boys have them?”

So I said “Why do girls have them?”

And he replied “So they can make a baby.”

“But they don’t make a baby with their nipple do they?”

“No – so they can keep their baby alive”

“Does the nipple have magical powers – that is able to keep the baby alive?”

“No, the baby and eats and drinks from it – that is it’s power! The baby eats and drinks at the same time!”
