not sure if this belongs here or not, but i wanted to share a cute story & knew you ladies would appreciate it. we went on dd1's field trip to the zoo today & i had dd2 in a wrap & she was nursing. of course all the kids wanted to see the baby & one little boy piped up "She's drinking her milk guys! don't you know it's not polite to interrupt someone's lunch!" <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> at which point all these kids started telling me "I drank milk from my mom's boobs" or "My baby brother is nursing too." type things & it totally warmed my heart! not one rude comment or "grooosss" like i would have thought from a bunch of 7 & 8 year olds....then i started thinking....if BF'ing is what children perceive as normal & they don't think twice about it, why do some adults? hmmm. i just wanted to share as i thought it was encouraging.

That is so cute, aren't kids so smart, they DO know what is best!!!!<br>
We homeschool and I can only think of one time there has ever been a baby given a bottle at any of our events in the past few years, and he was a foster baby..<br>

That's a great story - thanks for sharing! I've noticed that kids tend to see BF as totally normal, or as a neat curiosity, unless their parents have instilled some "BF is gross/wrong" notions.<br><br>

what a sweet story! i love those kind of nip stories!!<br><br>
when i was pregnant with ds i was working as a nanny...the little girl was 4.5 years old and we had a very close relationship...she was SOOOO excited that I was having a baby...one day she was telling me that she was going to help me take care of my baby when s/he was born...she said "i can help change your baby's diapers and i can play with your baby and i can feed your baby" I told her that she could help take care of the baby in a lot of ways but that when babies are little only their moms can feed them...she smiled knowingly and said with a sly grin "yeah...from the boobs" and pointed to her chest... It was so cute..after that she took to nursing her baby dolls...<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment">
