Breast feeding and clingy baby?

Does breast feeding make your baby clingy? I have a friend who breast feeds & her son is super clingy. Always has to be held. Im worried about making my son super clingy when hes born. I'll have to go back to work at some point & don't want him to be fussy around a sitter. I want to breast feed but every mother i know who does says their baby cries every time they put them down. Is there a way to prevent this?
