Nursing toddlers and their hilarious expressions/behaviors

post #1 of 54
Thread Starter 
I have been meaning to post these and I have probably already forgotten one or two. I know a lot of us are struggling at times so I thought this thread would lighten the mood a bit.

Things my nursing toddler has said/done that have cracked me up:

1. Nursing on the couch, DD nursed on one side and then wanted the "other side" as she always insists. Well Daddy pulled into the driveway just as she was about to switch. She got down, ran to the door, and greeted Daddy. 5 or 10 minutes pass while they play. We are in the kitchen and she points to my "other" boob from across the room and yells "other side" with pure glee like it had been missing and she found it.

2. DD had fallen asleep and when I unlatched her, she called out while sound asleep "Don't take my milky-way." The thought of my breastfed 2 year old who has never had candy calling for a milky way got me laughing so hard that she woke up and started laughing. We started bedtime nursing all over again...of course, I wasn't laughing so hard then.

3. Open/close the milky -- DD will ask if the milky is open or closed. At first she was referring to my bra and now I think she gets the joke that it means open or closed for business. Or at least she knows it gets a laugh out of me.

Please, share your funny moments!

My ds is 16 mos old. He will stop in the middle and come up for a kiss, then get back to nursing. We also play keep-away. He'll try to nurse then I pull away and he says, "Aaah!"

When my dd was about 18 months, she snuggled up as usual for bedtime nursing, then paused, looked up at me with delight in her eyes and said "Niiiiiice!"

I do this with my son too. And he laughs with sheer delight. He is figuring out how to lift my shirt up. Too funny.

1.Sometimes when my ds is nursing, especially when he is sleepy, he'll take his hand and put it on my face and say "Mmmm" and then put his hand on his face and does the same. It's his way of asking me for affection.

2. Sometimes DS will play peek a boo while nursing. Usually he'll use my shirt, but sometimes he just looks away and then looks up at me. Then he giggles while still latched on.

3. He also tries talking to me with grunts and hums while nursing.

My 19 mo DS loves to smush his face into my breast and blow raspberries while he's nursing. It's totally cute and funny...unless we're nursing in public!


He also gets really excited and will do the sign for nurse with both hands while smiling, stomping his feet and singing "nurse, nurse, nurse-nurse-nurse!"

Hahaha.

Sometimes when DS finishes he will frantically try to put the milky "way! way!" Meaning away, he wants to hook the bra back up. He actually gets quite agitated if it's not put away fast enough.

DD is just over three. I have begun to ask her why she wants milk when she asks me for it. The usual answer is "just because I like it" with a look on her face, like......why else you fool?!

When DD is particularly content at the breast she says "Golly, golly, goll" , still with the nipple firmly in her mouth.

Two recent gems from my 3 year old:

"You have really nice boobies, Mom."

and


"I love you AND I love your boobies!"

Yesterday dd (2.75yo) asked to nurse about 15 minutes after finishing her previous nursing. Early pg plus her nursing is equaling heightened nausea these days (and my baseline nausea is bad enough!), so I said, "Didn't you just nurse a little while ago?"

She said, "Well, I didn't nurse a *lot*..."

My 24mo is learning to count and apply it to everyday things. She informed me very seriously that there is one mama and two num-nums. She's also been sharing a lot with DH and I, and when she nurses she "offers" me some num-nums.

When we nurse, sometimes I smush my boob into his face and say, "Milky." He thinks it's so funny, and I get a kick out of watching him try to hold his latch while smiling and laughing.

Just last night my 3 year old son was nursing on the left side and said "I want the other side, this one is too warm, the other one is colder". Then he flipped over my belly and started nursing on the other side.

I was nursing DS before bed, and my DH was also in bed with us for a nice cuddle. Well, DH's hand was on DS, and DS (who is a twiddler) took DH's hand and slid it right onto my other breast! I think he was sharing!

My 18 mo ds makes me cover up when he's finished. He gets so mad if I don't do it fast enough!

3.5 year old nurser on a roadtrip...

asks to nurse. I said I needed to stay in my seat for a little while. Daddy says, "I'll nurse you" She states; " your boobs are little and hairy. But Mama's boobs are BIG and NOT HAIRY!"
