Just a funny story, my 3 year old DS nursed up until my milk went away from the pregnancy. He's been asking for "nah-nahs" ever since. Sometimes when he needs comfort, he asks to snuggle up to them.

Well he squeezed one and milk came shooting out! I think he forgot that there used to be milk in there because the look on his face was priceless! I asked him if he wanted some milk and he promptly turned me down with a confused look on his face!

Amazing how soon they forget.

Ha! It's so true. My three-year-old nursed until about the second or third month of this pregnancy, and still likes to cuddle with the nursies and touch a mole on my chest (I thought this would drive me nuts, but it's so much better than nursing through pregnancy, which I did last time, that I don't mind at all). He asked me the other day if the milk would come out of the mole when the new baby nurses. I suppose it's been a long time, for him, and how can he remember exactly where he used to suck?

DS is delighting the return of colostrum, too. We were showering the other day and he pointed to my breasts and shouted, "Yay! Milk in the gigis!" I lost milk at around 16 weeks during this pregnancy, but he has continued to "nurse" 3-5 times a day. There is definately an increased interest now with requests up to 8-10 times a day.

Yes, I'm thinking it is colostrum that I have, not real milk yet.

It's kind of yellowy/milky looking, but thicker.. so it has to be colostrum!

I had a nice nap today and had a wonderful dream about tandem nursing. I know my DS doesn't want to nurse again. I've let him try, but he forgot how to.

In a way, I'm relieved. My DS is very needy and was nursing almost non stop - so I sure could use the break until the new baby comes.
