If you really think your older son enjoys it you need to stop immediately.

At least he is seeing the woman's body in a realistic, natural setting, do what her body was intended. Nursing a baby. is one of the reasons a girl's body is different from his. I bet he does like looking but there isn't anything sexy about it.

I think it's crazy to be naked around your 11 year old. I have a 6 yr old and I will not let him see me naked..till this day he thinks women have the same parts as a man and until he is old enough that's what I will stick with. This is just my thoughts about this...in the end you are still going to do what you think is right for you.

If this isn't a joke, then you should not be bf naked in front of your 11 yr old. You need to educate yourself on the development of ages and stages of children. If you think that your son is getting off in any way while you bf naked- you need to get a clue and stop. I still think this post is full of shit. I think it's an anti-bf male/female trolling. Go away or prove yourself!

I think you should do whatever is comfortable. I have breastfed naked at home alot of times especially since I sleep in the nude I have got out of bed to breastfeed. I have a son who is also 12 years old and he has seen me nude it doesn't phase him at all, but thats just me. I believe it's up to you to decide.
