AWWWWWWWWWWW! Isn't that great when they promote our values?

My dd is constantly talking about how the mommy needs to come and hug their baby/kid and nurse them -- both animals and people.

My dd nurses her babies too. She usually nurses two at a time though since that is what she sees me doing. We're starting them off right!

I always think this is the sweetest, especially since I did this as a child too! My mom said that when she would nurse my middle brother, and again my youngest bro that I would cuddle in next to her with my doll and stick the doll under my shirt to nurse!

My ds doesnt do this but he does bring Elmo and Cookie Monster in for a drink!!!!:LOL

My son (8yrs) has been known to strike up conversations with women who have small babies, and in very short order ask, "so , do you breastfeed?" I also left him in the room with a women who was interveiwing me about being a doula and returned to find him giving my whole "Breast fed is best fed" pep talk to a very confused/amused pregnant woman! I just love it!

My dd doesn't do it. She seems to prefer bottlefeeding.

That is so cute! I love when the kids carry their dolls around in their mini Maya Wrap and pretend to nurse.
