When ds was first born, dh would always ask if he wanted "boobie" and my mom would just get so upset!!LOL She felt it was vulgar to say that....whatever!! But I decided that I didnt want a toddler yelling "boobie!!!" at the top of his lungs in the grocery store and decided to just call it "milk". He has recently really responded to me saying it and gets a big grin on his face and comes running when I ask, " DO you want milk?" He has also just recently ( ds is 14 months) started asking for it by patting my chest ever so gently ( it is so precious) and going "huh?" totally inflecting his voice when he says it. He sometimes pats his belly. And oh, I nurse him down for all of his naps and bedtime so when I say , "let's go ni ni" he will pat my chest or his!! I wouldnt be surprised if he calls it ni ni when he starts talking more.
- when I was pregnant, I knew I would bf, but I never thought I would be bfing a child that talks. I comment I always heard was when they can ask for it, they are too old!! Now that i am a nursing mother I know that there is no corelation between language and weaning!! And I think its cute that he can ask me for his milk!!!
