14 Breastfeeding Comments Only Kids Could Get Away With

little boy shockedMaybe they've been breastfed from the beginning, but at some point, kids learn to talk. And when they learn to talk, some doozies come out of their mouths about everything: even the way many babies eat their lunch and dinner.


And then, every now and again, kids surprise you with some hilarious commentary that'll just leave you wondering how the heck you should really have explained the phenomenon of nursing.

So for that, we went to moms to ask about the craziest things their children have ever said about breastfeeding. They will make you laugh, make you cry and might inspire a talk with your own kiddos.

  1. "First time my older son saw me nurse my younger son, he freaked out and asked why his brother was eating me!"
  2. "My son's father took him to the grocery story and as they passed the formula, my son announced, 'We don't need any of that because Mommy feeds babies with her boobs!'"
  3. "My kids still ask for milkies. Just the other day, my daughter said, 'Mama, you have no more milky in there, right? It's just in the fridge.'"
  4. "I breastfed for a little over a year. When my daughter was around 3 or 4, we were in the doctor's office with yet another ear infection, and she yelled out to a crowded waiting room, 'Breastfeeding doesn't help! I always get ear infections!' There was a mom breastfeeding her infant right there, so it did start an interesting dialogue while we waited."

  7. "My sister-in-law is pregnant with her third, and they have a farm. Her oldest boy, who's 4, asked if the baby would eat pizza and stuff when it gets here. So she explained to him that they baby would just drink milk from the Mommy for a while. He got the strangest look on his face and says, 'You mean you have to go to the barn so Daddy can milk you?!'"
  8. "While explaining to my 9-year-old what breastfeeding was, he responded, 'So you're like a cow?' Yes, exactly like a cow."
