What is your word for nursing? - Page 4
I have a "chocolate" and "vanilla" side, due some skin pigmentation changes that occurred during pregnancy (and which the doctor informed me yesterday are most likely permanent ). But that's really a joke for dh and me, ds is still too young to have any clue.
And yes, similar to what someone else mentioned, he also comes, looks me right in the eye, and starts curling and moving his tongue in his open mouth, like he's already so excited about nursing he can't help but pretend he's already doing it!
Haha, I asked DS what mama moot tastes like once, and he got this goofy little grin on his face and told me "It tastes like chocolate and candy." So having a chocolate side totally makes sense!
We call it "mama" over here. I sorta pushed the term on them, i guess. When I started nursing, I wanted to avoid any scenarios of my child yelling BOOB! in a public place. It would have totally mortified me at the time. I could care less about that now (I guess that is what having 3 kids will do to you) and openly nurse in public!
Both my kids have asked to "nur-nur." When I'm trying to be subtle I ask if they want to snuggle with me. Our less-than-subtle moments involve me getting dressed or bending over to pick something up. These moments incite delighted squealing. "I see the nursies!!" or "I got the nursies out!!"
Last night on a cross-country car trip my DS came down with the flu. We spent two hours alternating puking, cleaning and nursing in an unfortunate fast food restaurant. So many strangers were helpful and kind. Thankful none of them made me feel bad about nursing my 2 year old! At that point I would have nursed him at the 50 yard line of the Superbowl to help him feel better.
