Was X a father who found breastfeeding disgusting?

Sorry, being a bit dim here.

Sounds like an interesting discussion though...

I don't get why your thread was removed.
What you said does not sound hateful

This is bad!! I think it is a huge issue.

I should know as my DP(not!) does not understand me feeding, will not allow me to do it in public while he is with me and i'm sure he has said the word bottles every day since my DS was born (12 wo).

Due to this i am now a big fat faliure at BF and having to top up and express for england!

Basicly (sp?) if you don't have atleast the full support of your partner i don't think it would be as easy or dare i say it as succesfull as if you did. All though i do know someone who with her DD1 basicly bullied her DP into loving it as much as she did, and has EBF all 3 DC. Wish i had her balls!!!
