Gotta tell you all about my silly son (nearly 5 mo now!).<br><br>
Act I:<br>
I was nursing DS down for a nap on the futon bed (he nurses to sleep while I read lying down--I know, the luxury of having only one child). And I noticed a damp spot on the sheets. I thought, "hmmm, that's weird. When did I leak? He's been nursing this whole time". Next day, same thing. So I look more closely, and realize he's got milk dripping out of his NOSE! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/bigeyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="bigeyes"> He was doing a bit of flutter sucking, but was sufficiently konked out that he wasn't swallowing.<br><br>
I can't believe it didn't bother him to have milk in his nose! For a second, I was having visions of my son in 1st grade: the kid who grosses out the other kids at lunchtime by squirting milk out his nose. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rolleyes"><br><br>
Act II:<br>
We've reached that wonderful age where <i>everything</i> in the room is "interesting". Again, I was nursing DS down for a nap on the futon bed, and even though nothing interesting is going on, he pops off "mommy's nursers" to look every time I turn a page of my book or get a sip of water or you-name-it. Fortunately he's decent enough to loosen the suction before he does this and it's mostly been painless, just annoying (as in, "are you planning to take a nap or what?").<br><br>
So at this point I'm just ignoring his on-off-on-off-on-off antics. And then he fiddles around and takes a huge mouthful of breast in his mouth and starts to suck--only he missed the nipple! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/yikes2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="yikes">: So I unlatch him and look at the bright pink <i>hickie</i> on my areola. Later on that same day, <i>another</i> hickie! I'm going to have to start paying more attention because DS thinks he's a bit smarter than he actually is!
