This is what I asked my 2.5yo DS1. His reply? "I like the milk!"

When I ask him what it tastes like, he always answers "strawberries," even though he's never tried strawberries.

I asked this a couple of months ago of my 2.5 year old. He told me it makes him feel all better.... Totally melted my heart. If he sees someone who looks tired or sad he will always say he needs to nurse, it'll make him all better.

My son will be three next month, and every time I ask, he just says, "Because I like you!"

Oh my goodness... these are the sweetest things I've ever heard. Can't wait until my little one (15 mos) can tell me what he thinks of nursing.

Aw... I self-weaned when I was 6, and while I (oddly enough) don't remember actually nursing, I DO remember that it was the most comforting thing ever!

Those are too cute. I haven't asked her in awhile, but my now 3 year old would answer "because I love my nurs" and then she'll reach up and stroke my face . I've asked her what it tastes like and her reply is "nur milk" or sometimes "chocolate".

Wow. That's perfect. Of course if love has a taste it would be breastmilk.
