proof that my child is too old for nursing

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

About a year ago, he said, and I think I started a thread just like this to share, "I'm not thirsty, I'm nursty!"  lol  I thought that was a pretty sure sign that he was getting too old.  Now, today he's nursing (we're down to about 5 min most days and every once in a while we'll skip a day) and he says "wop wop wop, nursing gangham style...  heyyyyyyy sexy lady..."  Oh my!  


And just for the record, I don't really believe he's "too old" nor do I know what that is.  But I am starting to feel like this is dragging on a bit.  :)

I feel you! I actually make self-effacing jokes because my dearest BFF had to wean @ 1 year each time (chronic nursing pain) so she teases me a lot. I tease her about teasing me by making 'do you think my child is too old to nurse when . . . ' jokes.

Mine nurse over 3, so I get a lot of material! Very recently my LOs had a funny conversation, where my younger one said 'I don't need to nurse mama, I'm not crying' & my older one was like 'You don't just nurse when you're crying! You nurse when you just feel like it!' It was hilarious b/c my older one is so much more nurse-tastic than my other one, even tho both have nursed longer than most.

Aww, that's too cute!  My older one is always telling my younger one, in a bit of a pissy tone, that he's lucky that he still gets to nurse but he won't be able to do it forever.  lol

Mine is almost 3. He says things like one is strawberry & one is chocolate. One day, it was a biology lesson "Kitties dwink dis boo...puppies dwink dat boo. Fwoggy no dwink boo." Lately, when he lays down to nurse for nap, he says he is a baby kittycat. smile.gif

Mine likes to brag to her friends "my mommies num-nums are the best and just for me!" usually accompanied by illustrative hand gestures that meant titty-twister when I was a teen. And she tells daddy that his num-nums are no good...he should try harder. (Ha!)
