Sorry if this is TMI or wrong section! My 18m DD is still breastfeeding very regularly and I've began to notice since 3-4 months ago that my farts smell exactly like her poo? It is very weird and I'm not the only person that thinks so. My DH too! (Poor guy  sad.gif  ) Does this happen to anyone?

Mine too...but I thought it was because she eats the same food (solids) as us, rather than anything to do with breastfeeding...?

Hmm but that doesn't explain why DH's farts smell different lol! It's like you know right away who farted :X

LOL - men process things differently - and maybe drink beer!

haha, I've noticed this as well!! Didn't consider it could be because of the BFing though.

I'd say it is more likely that her poos smell just like your farts.  I am sure you don't eat exactly the same diet as your OH all day every day
