There's nothing like verbal nurslings :) - Page 2

post #21 of 64
I can't wait until my 12 week old DD talks. This is so fun! I'm planning on CLW-ing. My dad thinks it's cool; my mom says once they can ask for it they are too old. DH is supportive of nursing but said yesterday we'll have to talk about how long. Reading threads like this really encourage me and make me look forward to BFing when she's older.

She already will let go and look up at me and smile and make noises trying to talk to me. I can't wait until she's understandable.

DH was lying down with her while she went to sleep. She's really been into making up and singing songs, and as I was passing by the door, I heard her singing:

"I have nummers! (our word for mama's milk)
I take my babies and nurse them!
I nurse and nurse and nurse!
Then we laugh and laugh and laugh and laugh!"


How could i ever give that up?
Oh, that is very sweet and very cute.

Too funny! DS is turning 2 next week and has recently started meowing like a kitten when he wants to nurse. He says "milk" (which sounds like "mah") and then starts meowing. So cute.

DD2 is 22mo and VERY verbal (second kid I think). Last spring she started screaming "MILK" during the day whenever she wanted to nurse (just rolls over at night!). We talked and I told her she didn't need to scream but just come up and ask (thinking I could at least try). Low and behold she dosen't scream any more she comes up to me and WHISPERS! Ha, it's actually very very cute. I guess me asking her not to scream but ask nicely to her meant she should whisper. So sweet.

At one point a couple of months ago, my now 2yo nursling unlatched herself, smiled up at me, and said "Tummy happy!!!"

The other day, mine started giggling and then told me I had bubbles in my milk.

Oh! These little nurslings made my day. So, so cute!!!!

(ds and I are experiencing some temporary nursing frustration. I have bronchitis and haven't been eating, so my supply has dipped and having 28lbs on my chest just hurts right now...Thanks for giving me a little cheer .)

Sorry for the derail and back to the super cute nursling stories!

So cute! My DD is doing that too. She will pull off, look at me and make her cooing noises at me. I say, 'Boobie milk is yummy, hey?' and she grins and practically head butts me in her rush to start feeding again.

I've also begun saying to her in the mornings while she is laying on my bed, 'What time is it? It's boobie time!!' and she throws her arms around and kicks her legs like crazy and grins and makes all her excited noises. My DH is in hysterics every time. He thinks she is soooo clever to understand

My 21 month old DD taught her daycare classmates how to nurse all of the dolls there.

And last week she asked for "nursing", and when I lifted my shirt said "I like the other side better"

These are all so cute!

My dd, 2.5, recently woke up one morning. I had already gotten up and dh was in the bed with her. She took one look at him and before he even said a word, she says, "I'm having mama's nana milks for bekkist (breakfast) AND NOTHING ELSE."

So don't even try offering something else, buddy.

My nursling has declared that one side is for her mouth and the other side is for her hand. She's been nursing on one side for a while.

pre-verbal, DD signed "mommie" "milk" "ice cream" "hot" ... now that she talks about EVERYTHING, she doesn't say much about nursing ... but does bring me all manner of her "kids" (dolls, soft animals, etc) to have mommie-milk ... and even suggests I offer to crying babies at the playground. I.e. "that baby is crying 'cause he's hungry. Can you give him mommie-milk?" Ummm...

And lately, as we have been going to the LLL Toddler meetings and she isn't seeing anyone from the local playgrounds, asking why so-and-so doesn't have mommie-milk rather incredulously. She wants me to explain to my sister, the mom of her 6 month-older cousin, that he still NEEDS mommie-milk, at least till he's 12 or 8 or grown. Her words. Dare I suggest DD tell her aunt? (who regularly asks me when DD is going to wean ...)

awww these are sooo cute, DD is 22mo and very verbal, but never talks about nursing, and I have always kinda wondered why, all she does is climb up in my lap and point to my breasts. I am definitely looking forward to the cute comments
post #36 of 64
DD's funniest one lately is that she will come towards me ever so slowly...looking at me...then looking at my "nursies". Then she will say in her little voice..."I'm sneaking up on your nursies! I'm sneaking up on your nursies!". Then she will latch on like she's gobbling up a sandwich. So funny. Well, so funny when I'm not feeling touched out

Dd's a songstress too... About any ol' thing.

When it comes to the num, she is inspired!

"Are they booooooobs? NO! Are they bestsssss? NO! I call them nummieeeeeeeez! And I Loo-oh-huh-huh-hove.... theeeemmmmm." (Then the finale involves much face burying in the ample bosom)

She saw our 16yo neighbor in a sports bra the other day, tanning... this girl's breasts are BIG, and Prenna says, "Look at THOSE nums, Dad!" He said, "Um... no thanks... I can't really..." I about died laughing.

These are great! But this thread is making me so sad....my 29mo ds is still nursing, but my milk has dried up from pregnancy. He doesn't really talk about it anymore, and I miss those moments! Hopefully we'll make it until January and I can hear about all of the newborn milk he's flooded with!

Had to come back and add my comment to this... Tobias is very clear that NOONE is to share his Mama milk... One of my best friends (also my neighbour) has a six month old daughter and we've spent almost every day together for almost a year for at least part of the day... So the kids are really close. If he thinks E is trying to hone in... he quickly come over and bury himself in my chest and start nursing like somehow the milk is all going to go right over to her if he doesn't get it all out.

So then the other day we were playing and he was sitting on one side of the bed, I was on the other and I pretended to "nurse" (looked down and said mmmmm nurse to my ample bosom )

He came flying over as fast as he could and took the boob right out of my hand and started to nurse and gave me a look that was total shock and said plain as day "THESE ARE MINE! GET YOUR OWN NURSIES"

I was dying laughing... he didn't see the humour :
