so dd2 is 15 months & she has been having a rough time this week with croup. thankfully, she is still nursing, so she has been handling it well. although i must add she has been nursing about 75 million times a day to make up for illness. unfortunately she lost her voice, until last night. she woke up & said "mama! dada! nursey!" so, i undid my shirt & she wrapped both arms around my breast & said "I Love You Boob" & fell back asleep <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
just wanted to share another cute story with you all. makes you realize they truly do LOVE nursing when they say it out loud like that.

That is so cute!<br><br>
I was JUST telling DH this same thing. I'm so glad I nurse DD - she is sick this week, and I'm so glad I have this way of comforting her. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Awww! I love cute nursing stories! Lately my DD (20 mos.) has been "nursing" on my bellybutton...she finds it hysterical! She will "nurse" then look up at me & say "MMMmmmmmmm..." then LAUGH! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> Silly girl. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">

I just came here to post a thread like this! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
My DS (almost 14 mos) calls it "nuh nuhs" and lately he's been so adorably cute when he wants to nurse it melts my heart. He'll come up to me and look into my eyes, sign for nurse and say "nuh nuhs?!" as if he's asking so politely. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/loveeyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Loveeyes">: Then he snuggles into position and waits for me to lift my shirt for him with the cutest little grin on his face.<br><br>
I never knew nursing a toddler could be so heartwarming, it certainly makes the tantrums easier to deal with! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/heartbeat.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="heartbeat">

So so cute. I was going to post a "why I love breastmilk/breastfeeding". My kid also has croup (or what we suspect is croup) and this is his first ever illness (aside from Chicken pox at 5 months which was a breeze). He hardly has an appetite, so has been nursing quite a bit for the past 2 days. He also falls asleep hugging my boob - he can't say sentences yet, but I hope one day soon!

I love these threads!<br><br>
DS is in love with his "geegees". He says, "mama geegee, YES!" and "nuddah geegee"(other side) and my favorite, "monkey geegee too, YES!" when his monkey wants to tandum nurse....I never thought I'd be tandum-night nursing a human and stuffed animal, but it beats geting out of bed!

These are great!<br><br>
DD calls them "boo!" which sort of happened before I realized it. She had had a rough day teething, and last night was acting fussy in the evening while my husband read books to her. When I walked back in the room, she fought clear of him and toddled over to me, and crawled up into my lap. "MA-ma." What do you want, honey? I asked. "boo." she said, and latched made herself at home nursing.<br><br>
It was a clear answer to a question! too funny...<br><br>
more stories please. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>

My dd says "um num num", which seems like a looooong way to put it. She also says "side" when she would like access to the other side (so she can switch back and forth while pushing my shirt up to my chin while NIP, preferable, <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">)

Obviously your DD agrees that mama's milk is liquid love.<br><br>
I remember the first time DD stopped nursing long enough to say "thank you". and the time she said something like nursing "makes me pink and bright".<br>

OMG how cute is that?<br><br>
My DS just turned one. He was so sick on his birthday and for a few days after. I was so glad to still be nursing! What else would I have done? He didn't eat at all for a few days, just nursed. I can't wait to hear what he has to say sbout it!

My lo is 19 months old and has never been sick, except a clear runny nose, once or twice, and a fever or two. No colds, congestions, coughing, or other common childhood illnesses. We also don't vaccinate, and she is exposed to children in playgroups, so I feel it is the wonderful antibodies she is receiving from my breastmilk and hope to continue nursing as long as it is something she wants to do. It is also a great source of nurturing and comfort to her since she never used a pacifier or bottle or lovey, I have always been where she finds soothing, and she also falls asleep to the breast which I don't mind because it has completely removed the nighttime battles parents often go through, with us we just feed to sleep after a good bath, book, and massage, and I wouldn't have it any other way.<br><br>
Finally it hasn't always been easy (I had excema I couldnt take medication for which made it really difficult, and it wasn't always easy to feed throughout the night on demand) But when she was on the verge of getting sick she would nurse herself through the night (what I call self medicating) and we have never had to use ANY OTC medicine on her. I am afraid of the when she will no longer receive the benefits of my milk (antibodies, DHA, comfort when she is in pain, supplement to the toddler's often picky eating days) as I know she will then be fully exposed to all the world and it's environments without the added protection of my milk, but hope that the years that they did sustain her will serve to benefit her in the many years to come, and throughout her lifetime. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">

My 15 mo DD has been going through a phase of kissing my nipple when she is done nursing. She does it ever so gently then looks up with a grin.<br><br>
This is unusual for her because usually when you ask for a kiss she leans her head in and lets you do the kissing. After nursing she is very intentionally expressing her love and appreciation.<br><br>
Lovin' nursing a toddler!
