A Family Ménage à Trois

Is breastfeeding a baby while having sex an acceptable practice?  Some Babycenter members seem to think so:

I mean, come on!  The reason for feeding babby some of that super-milky-miracle goodness is so far removed from sex that assuming any sort of connection between the two is just plain ridiculous.  The sex needed to continue in peace, but it also wouldn’t have been fair to the hungry babby to make it simply lay watching and waiting.  (Attachment parenting at its finest!)

Besides, sex while breastfeeding isn’t generally a planned encounter; it just sort of happens.  Kinda like going home with a married man you met at a bar.  And nursing relationships are totally complicated anyway, so who are YOU to judge how people get their “intimacy” on?

Sex and breastfeeding are both normal and natural — so they would seem to go hand in hand:

And it’s not as if the baby is going to remember anything when it’s older:

Besides, threesomes with the baby needn’t involve crazy doggy-style sex; most of the time, it’s just gentle spooning.  Breastfeeding sex can be a wonderful, nurturing act and for both mom and dad.  (And for babby too, I guess.)

And it’s not as if you’d ever make him pull out so you could scratch your nose:

You see, every family does things differently.  Different families have different needs, and it’s just plain ignorant to judge others for having sexual trysts with their babies:

The baby probably won’t remember anyway, but on the off-chance that it does, wouldn’t being engaged in a threesome with its parents make the most charming memory?

Even the “experts” evidently recommend this wonderful family bonding experience…

…though it is not generally recommended with extended breastfeeders:

All the same:

Okay; I’m done now.
