When I'm having one of those days where I'm wondering why in the world I'm doing CLW, dd inevitably reminds me of one of the many reasons. Today's reason - singing about nursing

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?

My most recent verbal nursing child moment:

We're in the grocery store and ds (26 months) sees a magazine cover with Tyra Banks in a very small bikini - and yells,

"Momma! She's got nursers!"

I thought, Yes! That's what they're there for.

That's so cute, there's an old pinup bikini picture of Tyra in our garage and my ds has always loved it. It was the first thing he pointed at - with a big grin on his face!

My DS age 2.5 said "mmmmm, good milk mama!" And smacked his lips.

He also says, at ANY point during the day, "i'm so tired mama. I go lay down mama's bed and nurse?" He fake yawns REAL big. He knows that nap/bedtime is basically the only time that he nurses.

So cute!!! I love nursing a toddler. The other day DD pulled off, looked up at me and (gesturing to my breast) said, "Sip, mama??" She wanted to share!! (I was like "No thanks, kiddo, I'm all good.")

Mama to DS (8) and DD (7) Aristotle was not Belgian. The central message of Buddhism is not "Every man for himself." And the London Underground is not a political movement.

Julia calls breasts "tunnies"--so she always is pointing out if people have tunnies.. She always like to ask, Can I nurse tunnies please..

I asked her what tunnie milk tasted like, she replied "yummy food"

DS will often nurse and then pop off with a milky face and kiss me on the lips and say...

"I give you nana kisses so we can share your yummy ice cream milkies!"

So cute! I love it when my dd talks about nursing. The other day my MIL had taken a bunch of the grandkids and me and dh to Chuck E. Cheese and I nursed Jade there. On the way home we were talking about all the fun things she did and I asked her what was her favorite and she said "the merry go round and nuring"

My most recent favorite from my 3 year old.

On waking in the morning:
"mmmm Mommy-- I smell something yummy...."
then she starts rubbing her hands together, laughs and says
"to nursie!"

I love, love, love having a verbal nursing.

One time she got hurt and she said, "Mama nurse you [meaning her] & feel better".

Another time, she started spontaeously singing, "I like to nurse! I like to nurse!"

She told a friend the other day, "I Loooooove to nurse!"

Yep, makes me proud to be able to meet her needs that she so eloqently describes.

Nessa, DD1 (5) DD2 (3) & expecting again in late February/early March!

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.

Mama to 2 year old and :: June 14th!

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!!!"

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
