My friend noticed that her son seems to get erections when she breastfeeds sometimes. Naturally she is freaked out about it not knowing what to do. How do you hand this?

Yep perfectly normal. My boy seems to get erections several times a day.

For my experience it is not uncommon, that little boys get erections, if they feel very comfortable. Therefore, it is no need for any concern. Your friend should be happy, that he enjoys the breastfeeding so much.

I'm SURE it's nothing. Erections in little boys are VERY normal. I wouldn't even think twice about it.

wait what? your friend breast feeds, and the son she is breastfeeding gets an erection? is that the situation? If so, it happened with my son for a little while, but not for too long. I suggest that you ask your doctor, but i dont see much of a problem with it

am breastfeeding single mom of several boys,and as i happen to have large breasts that contain lg amts of milk,I have way enough to accomodate.Now when I breastfeed my younger ones ,or my oldest twins,at the same time ( usualy 2 at a time with all as it saves time ),they become erect,and very large for their ages...but I am not embarressed......we too are a naturist fam,~~24~7~~( all are home-schooled ),living on seculed property,and they have erections al the time....playing,sports ,or just walking around...just natural. Concerning erections while nursing,..they are all just happy grateful,and enjoying the closeness and bonding,of nursing from their mother,which is as natural as you can get.

Mine too vicki lol. Seems like whenever i turn around it's sticking straight into the air. Anyway to the OP it normal i imagine. Though i can't remember it happened during bf i'm sure it did. JUst shrug it off, and pay it no mind whatsoever, because sometimes during intimate moments like this,bathing,and snuggling you have to realize your son will get an erection for no reason.

I imagine it's just the fact it happens during breastfeeding is why it's freaky.
