i just had this happen to me yesterday at a relatives wedding. all day long she kept trying to pull down my shirt and saying Baba and making the sign for milk, even though she had just nursed.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE these!!!

So much fun being a nursing Mommy!

-Hubby holds baby who mashes her face into HIS chest and he knows it's time for some mommy!

-I love that GNNNN... noise she makes when I pull off and she's not quite sleeping yet...

-when nursing my baby puts her arm over my breast covering her eyes, and making it difficult for me to slip a finger in her mouth to break suction!

-when nursing in public she pulls off to look around and yanks the blanket down!

-she stares at my chest! She's only a few months old!

-I offer a banana and she doesn't even open her mouth, but the color of my hand looks familiar to suck on!

Happened yesterday, lol

Your 9 month old takes out the left "nu nu" from your low cut bathing suit at the public pool.

you bring an extra shirt along where ever you go...at first because you might leak and then later because you are concerned your baby may rip your shirt trying to get to the milkies

TWICE now, DH has woken me up in the middle of the night because the power was out and he was worried about the BM in our freezer. he even drove it over to work at like 6 am on a sunday morning to keep it cold! now, THAT'S a BF-friendly husband!

- your infant can't see more than a few feet in front of him but instantly calms down when you utter the phrase, "do you want nursies?"

- your used nursing pad placed gently on your lo's face can instantly stop any fussiness.

lovin' this thread as a stream of milk drips from the corner of my son's lip.
oh, and pure genius about the income from nursing. i'll be using that gem.

You can type one-handed and in the dark.

Someone else's kid cries and you are just about ready to offer a boob when you remember that that's not your baby.

...when your baby gets super excited to see your chest and then looks at yor face.

...when your heart melts at seeing the love and rapture in you baby's eyes while they curl their fingers around your finger as they nurse, and you feel the world go away. Yes! These are the moments that make breastfeeding the most rewarding!

Oh, they lean over, under and try against the laws of physics to get through each other. One will often push the other off, or pull the boob out of the other twin's mouth. Amazingly these antics always seem to be in good fun--not like fighting over toys. I often switch them WHILE they're latched on and flopped over/under each other because all that reaching doesn't make for comfy latches. I'm not so 'blessed'--barely a 'C' cup while nursing twins! Neither has a favorite boob, but from time to time I think they both find one boob more appealing than the other. DH always says, "oh, so that one's chocolate today."

Today I woke up from a nap (taken with nursing baby) to see my 3 y.o. and her new 4.5 y.o. friend who had just moved in a few doors down, sitting on the bed looking at me and baby. "This is my baby sister," my older girl explained to her new friend. I was lying there with my boob hanging out as baby had fallen asleep at the breast (me too). I wouldn't be showing the neighbourhood girls my bare boobs upon first meeting if I wasn't nursing, let me tell ya.

my DD just started doing the sign for milk! it is so cute.

i love it when they are whining and you ask if they want to nurse (we say ba ba) and they melt right into you and let out a big sigh. that melts my heart.

When the doorbell rings you glance down at your shirt to make sure it's buttoned before you answer the door.
