<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/bag.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Bag">: We EBF, but I hate the way the breast milk smells. Icky sweet yuck! If DS spiits up, even a little, I usually have to change him right away. For some reason it just smells gross to me. Am I the only one?

I'm going to move this to breastfeeding <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"> but when I had my first baby (gulp, nine years ago!) I remember being absolutely disgusted by the smell. It was so rich and sweet and heavy and cloying, I couldn't stand it. My husband assured me no one was smelling it like I was. I have a really sensitive nose. If it helps, I did eventually become desensitized to it.

I think it smells like cheese. Can not stand the smell when I am leaking and it drys on my clothes. Dont really smell it when I am pumping.

I just remember with my first I slept on towels because I leaked so much and I would wake up smelling it... Ugh, it still kind of makes me shudder even though I don't smell it anymore. I have sensory issues. And yeah, it was even worse when it dried. It had a sour smell.

Every once in a while, I think it smells like mac n' cheese, which doesn't really bother me. But usually, I can't smell a thing. Maybe my nose isn't as sensitive?<br><br>

I have sensory issues too, mostly smell...I had to return all the sheets we got from our wedding b/c they smelled so. gross. DH couldn't smell a thing.<br><br>
If I had class or ssomething and DH gave DS a bottle and didn't wash it out after...as soon as I get in the kitchen my whole nose wrinkles up and I get grossed out!<br><br>
BTW - I debated btwn LWAB and Breastfeeding, but since it wasn't a feeding issue I put it LWAB....I thought it was a close one. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">

Thats kind of the joke around here. I always ask DH if he is still attracted to me even though my shirt is always crusty and I smell like cheese. I really need to invest in some wool nursing pads. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment">

I don't like the cheesy smell of spit-up, but I do like how my DD smells right after a feeding. DH describes her smell as "the milk left in the bowl after you've had Golden Grahams".
