How your older children ask to nurse? - Page 2

post #21 of 57
"Can I have a nip?" I alternate between finding this cute and disgusting.

DS (3yrs) says, "I WANT MAMA'S MILK, please!" He will often tell me where he would like to have it as well - on the bench, in the chair, in the bed, etc. Just recently while playing outside he said, "I want mama's milk in the dirt." He also calls one boobie "small mama's milk" and the other "big mama's milk."

To my mom (his grandmother) he will ask "Mama's milk all gone?", to which she replies "Yes, your mama drank it all." He gets a kick out of that one!

Kellie, that is adorable. Makes me want to hug your little one.

Nurse, please, momma.

Sometimes he tells me in the bed or in the chair, not the couch. He likes to tell his brother when he's done, too so that he can get in there, while pushing his head away.

My 10 week old pecks like a little chick and hyperventilates.

My 3 year old says, "Mama, can I please may nurse?"

My 5 year old says, "May I please nurse?"

My almost 7 year old asks to cuddle - he self-weaned on his fifth birthday but still likes to cuddle - usually with a hand on my breast.

I feel like my 2 year old dd is far too literal

She says "mommy, I want to nurse please" that's it.. nothing cute or nicknames... and yet, I find her literal sense the most endearing

"Please May can I Have some Milk?"

My 33 month old son, when he is trying to be polite says "Please, May can I have some milk?"

When he is not feeling so patient or polite he pulls on my shirt/bra. I really don't like that.

My 8 month old daughter does the boobie dive. If she wants milk she won't sit in my arms upright she dives for my chest.

"I want milkies...... NOW!" (if I try to delay too long)

She also tells me which milkie she wants at any given time. And she pats the one she wants. Yesterday after she nursed a quite a while on my left side, she told me "I don't like this milkie. I want your other milkie!" My left breast felt very rejected.
Starflower, our kids clearly took the same class. This is my ds absolutely word-for-word.

We went through a short phase a while ago where I think my supply was low for a few days and in the night when he was sleepy and confused, he kept saying "I want the OTHER one", and searching my body for some miraculous third boob which (presumably) was full of milk. (Sorry, that's kind of O/T.)

My dd does the EXACT same thing! My supply severely dove for a short while following my hysterectomy, and she would continually ask for the other one

My 3 yr old is very vocal about his needs, too. He usually says "I want mama milkies!" Rarely says please and also likes to suggest the location: "I want mama milkies on couch." As soon as I pick him up from daycare, as he's getting his coat on "I want mama milkies in car!"

He often slips his hand down my shirt & in my bra to hold the milkies. If I want him to wait till later, he says, "No, I want to drink the milkies, not just hold it."

This weekend I went into a cell phone store to buy a new batteries & my 15 mo old needed to nurse, so I discretly nursed him while I was waiting for our turn. 3 yr old said, "I want milkies too!" I told him no, he had to wait until we got home." He said, "But Seanie's having milkies! I want to share!" I am having a hard time explaining to him that he can have milkies in private because he's a big boy and can wait.

Emily (41 months) asks to nurse, to have nuh-nuh, or sometimes will suggest that "nuh-nuh will make me feel better." She will also tell me if one is empty, "Mom, you have to put more milks in there for us to drink!"

Occasionally when she sees her baby brother nursing, she'll ask, "What can *I* drink?" and I'll ask her to tell me what she'd like to drink . . . nuh-nuh, of course!

Liam (19 months) asks for "nuh-nuh" but if he's trying to be silly, he twists his mouth up and with a smirky grin asks "na-na-na-no-no-no-nuh-nuh-nuh" over and over and over

Why do I picture Oliver Twist with this, "Please, ma'am, can I have some more?"

Hmmm, my kids have always been big "Can I nurse?" ones, but at this point DS just has pretty set times that he nurses so there is not too much asking. Just "Nurse" and dig in.

dd is 2.5 and she usually just says "let's have nursies".

She chose last week when we were traveling for thanksgiving to start using the phrase "I need..." for everything. "I NEED you to play puzzle with me...I NEED a snack please... I NEED Grandma". I'm pretty sure the whole plane heard her when she announced "I'm so so sleepy and i NEED to have nursies now!"

Croodle NOW!

(Croodle is archaic English to describe a little animal snuggling up to it's mother)

Mommy croodle!

I can't wait!

She usually remembers to whisper to me in public, which I started to request last year.


Followed by pulling on my shirt.

She's 4

my kids have called them "mamas" and then refer to me as mommy. It helps in public when they say they want mamas, it just sounds like they want me.

My 2.5 yr. old DD says "I want a nanny" or "I need one" .
post #40 of 57
DD is 3 and only nurses at night for the most part but when she is ready she is very demanding and just says "I want nurnee, go to bed." If I fall asleep while she is nursing and she wants the other side I wake up to her shoving at me so I will roll over and her little demanding "roll over" I think it is very cute!! The only thing I have a hard time coping with is the tweaking, it is very important to her and annoying to me.
