Anytime I'n nursing a baby and they have ANY issue - sleeping trouble, stuffy nose, gas - she says "Well, it's probably time to put them on some formula!"
I'm very proud of the fact that 2 of my 3 kids never had a drop of formula, one never even drank from a bottle at all. straight from boob to sippy.
I think older people have a tough time with it.
...as far as the sexuality part, I think that's a little weird. I never connected my boobs to anything sexual. But that's just me, I guess.
