I'm sure Reader's Digest already has their August issue arranged- if it's not already printed. Maybe somebody could suggest this for BF week in 2007.

OMG, I love the one about the server running away. Can't think of any of my own to add right now.

I'm holding out for the Cooking with Breast Milk cookbook, for those of us with oversupply issues. Compilation of recipees using breast milk. (I tried making chocolate pie with breast milk for the party after dd's baptism, but pudding wouldn't congeal.)

I also seriously wonder why breast milk isn't sold in stores. I'd think it would be a major health food. So good, even for adults. I mean, it'd be very expensive bc of how rare it would be, but I'm surprised it doesn't exist as a market at all. Not advocating it for many reasons, but I am surprised it isn't present.

OMG these stories are so funny!! :

Well I've only been nursing for 7 weeks but anyways, has anyone seen "Zoolander"? When me and DD were just learning how to breastfeed, she would often detach from my nipple and make the Derek Zoolander signature "look" (I guess it was a look of confusion, but it was cute nonetheless ). Me and my boyfriend would crack up whenever she did this, and joke that it was "our baby's first look"!

My baby did this! We called it his "Kissy Face."

Sort of funny- today Meleah was wanting to nurse and I was trying to finish a post. So she's sitting there trying to conjole me- "Meleah really likes the booboo. I really NEED the booboo mommy. The booboo is soo yummy mama. I really want it mommy... " All said with a big grin and wiggling of the eyebrows. LOL She is getting SO vocal about her love of nursing lately. I love it.

Ds has just figured out where the milk lives

The other day he was doing his morning wake-up nursing session and popped off me. He looked down, and I could see he was making the mental connection between my breast and the milk.

He got the most magnificent huge grin on his face, grabbed at my breast, and then did a nose-dive right for it. He did that several times. It was hilarious.

DD2, who is sick, wanted milk. I expressed some breastmilk into a cup for her and she drank it, not realizing it wasn't her usual chocolate milk (she weaned when I was expecting ds). She looked at me and said, this has "EXTRA GOOOD" squeezy syrup Mommy"

(the chocolate in her milk comes from Bosco, ).

These are great! I'll just post a couple, though with a 4 year old, I have many!

When my oldest was a newborn, we had a gathering at our house and my friends little girl was there. She was breastfed as a baby but didn't have any siblings yet so she wasn't really familiar with seeing it often. She wandered in while I was nursing him and got right in my boob and said 'whatcha doin?' and I told her I was feeding the baby. She says 'Why is he biting your booby?' I explained that he was drinking milk that my body makes for him. She pondered it a while and then reached out and touched my boob and says 'My mom has those, I'm going to see if she has milk too' and took off.

When my youngest was about 2 months old, we had to run to the store for a few things, and of course baby started fussing. He wasn't hungry, he just didn't like being in the infant carseat and I had forgotten the sling, so I was letting him suck on my pinky and he just wanted out. My older son let out a sigh and says 'Mom, take our your left booby and feed him!' The lady in line behind us started laughing, it was said very loud, and so funny! Why the left booby? The world may never know!

And I was nursing my son in my truck one day at Target (My mom and sister ran in with my older son to pick up some pictures we had dropped off earlier, so I just used the time to feed baby) and this car full of teenagers pulls up right next to me and one gets out of the back and walked right by my window. His eyes got HUGE and he bolted for hte others and of course, they all traipsed by the window to 'look at something in the trunk', then all walked back by. I had the window down and as the ywalked by the 2nd time I said 'Hey boys!' and they about died! So funny!

And the last one...
We were at Menards one day and the baby was about 5 months old, and my husband went to get something so I sat on a bench in the area where they set up and show off thier patio furniture. I was nursing the baby and this old guy comes over and sits by me. He started talking about kids and asked how old the baby was, etc. Then he says 'Boy, he must be a good sleeper to sleep through all this ruckus.' I laughed and said 'oh, he's nursing'. He leans over and looks, then says 'Lucky kid!' and just kept right on chatting about the day. It was so cute of him!

when my neice was just 20 months or so, long before I was a mama,
I was visiting my sister in the city for an overnight. I was just getting my pajamas on when my neice walked in and stopped, staring at me and at my chest, stunned.

"you have breastfeeds." she announced. "where's your baby?"

These are so much fun to read. I'm gigglin'. I have a couple:

DD1 was 26mos, and received a new doll for xmas from the in-laws. She got really upset and wanted it OUT of the packaging immediately. She was very distraught. As soon as DH managed to wrangle it out she grabbed it, yanked her shirt up, sighed loudly and settled back on the couch to nurse that baby. I have pictures.

DD2 is now almost 20mos and has become very verbal, even in her sleep. The last few nights she will have her eyes closed and say, "Na-na, Mama, bed, plz," and then "don-goot" (thank you) as soon as I lift my shirt for her. She's so polite!

A couple of years back, before I was even pregnant with my first child, I was at a dear friend's house holding her 1yo with her 3yo standing nearby (they were both still nursing at the time). The 1yo became hungry, so I told the 3yo that I was going to bring his brother to Mama to nurse. The 3yo looked at me like I was a bit daft and said "But you have nanas!" I said, "Yes, but my nanas don't have any milk in them."

The look of shock and horror on his face was PRICELESS. Of course he ran to his mom to confirm the news, yelling: "HER NANAS DON'T HAVE ANY MILK!!"

Yet another boy, growing up knowing what breasts are for...

When DS was six weeks old, he slept through the night for the first time and I woke up with two huge rocks on my chest. I woke him and started nursing him on one side and the other side started POURING milk. I soaked my PJs, my whole side of the bed, and DH's arm!

DS is starting to get very insistant when he wants his milk (like after his bath). If I take too long, he'll just grab my shirt and yank it up himself. I can't walk around the house topless anymore, or even change in front of him, because he takes that as an invitation to an all-you-can-eat buffet.

My favorite nursing memory is when I went to an LDS church with my friend. DS got fussy during the third hour, so I began nursing him. I was careful to be discreet because I know that Mormons encourage modesty, and I was sitting next to this little old lady in a wheelchair and I didn't want to embarrass her. DS fussed when I was switching sides and the lady grinned at me and said "He wants some more of that mama milk!" After the service, she "lectured" me that I should never be embarrassed or ashamed to nurse my baby and proudly told me how she nursed all of her children. It was so funny, this little teeny old lady in a wheel chair good-naturedly lecturing me about being proud to nurse my baby.

I've got one from yesterday. My almost 4 yr old came in to my office, on his way to the pool with his cousin & uncle, wearing his swim trunks. I said hi to him and he said "I don't have my shirt on! Everybody can see my boo-boos! (breasts) I have little boo-boos. When I am this many (holds up 5 fingers), I will have big boo-boos and drink my own milkie!"

Reminds me of dd telling me that HER booboos are for LITTLE tiny babies, and mama's booboos are for BIG babies. That and that she HAS tried to nurse off of herself. :

Parenting tips from my nephew

My niece and nephew (7 & 5) went for a car ride with me the other day. Thea still has some grumpy moments in the car and my nephew after listening to her cry for about 2 minutes said, "Could you PLEASE GIVE HER MILKIES!!! Babies really like the milkies and she won't cry anymore. That's what you should do anytime she cries ok"

What a great kid!

I have one , last nite was my first LLL meeting .. My little guy is only 5 months old. I was sitting on the floor nursing him and one of the toddlers came over and was watching me,then sat on my lap. Then she decided that she wanted some too so she tapped me on the other breast (the one that i was not nursing on ) meaning that she wanted some I told her that she need to ask that mommy meaning her mom , it was cute we all got quite a chuckle

I am sure I will have more as the years go by !!

These are all too cute! I wish I had written some down!

This is not really funny but endearing to me. There was the time when my sis had just given birth to my niece and my niece would not nurse. My sis was so desperate for some relief from engorgement that we ended up having my 9 month old nurse her. He latched on, took a few sucks, and popped right off, looked at his aunty, back to me and let out the biggest giggle ever. He thought it was hilarious.

Oh, just remembered. DS is still nursing and likes to compare mama milk to other delicious treats Grandma and Grandpa sneak to him. I ask him which one's better, mama milk or cookies? "Mama milk!" (he lets out a big grin) Ice cream? "Mama milk, I love mama milk more" (then he lifts my shirt to make sure it's true) That always makes me smile!
