dog obsessed when i breastfeed

when i feed my daughter my dog flips out and tries to push her out of the way to get to my breasts. sometimes if i am overfull i will express some onto a blanket or towel or burp rag and my dog will go nuts trying to get to the expressed breastmilk. i will obviously NOT let him have any because that's just gross but what can i do to stop him from spazzing when i feed dd.

Re: dog obsessed when i breastfeed

Have you tried putting the dog in another room?

I think it's sweet that the dog wants to nurse!

Why is it gross if the dog has some milk? We give cow's milk to cats...

Re: dog obsessed when i breastfeed

I feel your pain Mommy. My sisters dog had puppies a week before I had Gavin, My lil brother(who still lives at home) kept one. So Lola is a week older than Gavin. When ever I am at my moms(and these days with dh out of town) is a LOT. She will try and put her head into my shirt and push gavin off the boob for it. I drives me NUTS. And if Gavin spits up she is soo licking him top to bottom. Its cute but a total PITA LOL. She seems to think of gavin as a puppy too. she will crawl into his bouncy seat with him and sleep

i usually just push him away and get him to lay down next to us while she eats and then let him lick my fingers to show that i'm not mad at him

Re: dog obsessed when i breastfeed

reading this totally chacks me up. my dog was in love with me and was my best friend until i got pg, she stills wants nothing to do with me, but when i nurse she brings me all her toys. she dose not want to play she just piles them at my feet. i had some BM that sat out over night and i tryed to give it to the dog and she snubbed it. animals are funny.

Re: dog obsessed when i breastfeed

This has got to be one of the funniest threads I have read...my dog is more obsessed with making sure the baby isn't crying than with the milk. Now if I was producing raw eggs, THAT might be something!

LOL dogs are funny! Mine doesn't have a breastmilk obsession, but whenever I am pg, my dog gets really protective, follows me around, sits on my feet and also tries to get in my lap at any opportunity (he doesn't do any of that when I am NOT pg).

Re: dog obsessed when i breastfeed

I don't have a dog or cat. But, I have to go to people's homes on appointments for my job. At one home, the dog kept jumping up on me the entire time I was there. I had been there before and it wasn't a problem. The mom asked me if I was still nursing and when I said yes, she said that must be why he is so excited. I was a little embarrassed but I thought it was funny.

One of my cats is like that too. I have found her licking my bra. She doesn't come near when I am holding my son though, he is too noisy for her.
