Toddler nursing shenanigans - what's your favorite story?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Lately while nursing, my 20-month-old DD will unlatch and very carefully hold her stuffed dog to my breast and say, "Goggie nurse."  Tonight she didn't want to go to bed and nurse to sleep, but thankfully, Goggie did.  (Well played, independent toddler).

 

And I suspect she's on the verge of naming my breasts.  Lately she's been calling them "Big" and "Switch."

 

Not to mention her newfound ability to yell "Nursie!  Nursie!" in the middle of a crowded restaurant, and her insistence that I take a bath with her so she can lounge and float and nurse like some sort of goddess.  And who can ignore the nursing gymnastics?  I've taken a knee to the trachea more times than I can count.

 

How has your life gotten crazy since nursing a toddler?

Son just turned two. My daughter who is 3.5 will yell for two sides. His new version of that is TWO MILKS!!! He wants them all to himself. He is so proud to be talking.

My daughter climbs into my lap, pats my shirt and says "Open it." in a serious voice when she wants to nurse.

I'm trying to cut down on my son's nursing, so after a while I tell him "Milky needs to go to sleep."  Now, he insists on leaning on real close, and saying to each "milky", "Goodnight, I'll see you later."  It's kinda weird... but so sweet.  :down
