Toddler Talk: Breastfeeding

When I took Bradley classes, my instructor (who nursed her son 'til 4.5) said "all women should nurse until their children can talk.  They say the funniest things".  I always planned to nurse until he was one, maybe later, but kind of rolled my eyes at the hippiness of the comment.


On Friday, at my Sister-in-Law's rehearsal dinner, Jack looked at the two bottles of beer sitting in front of me (one was almost empty, the waiter had brought a replacement.  I wasn't double fisting!).  He pointed at one and said "juice".

I said, "Yes, Mommy's juice". 

He pointed at the other, "Daddy's juice?".

I said, "Yes, Daddy's juice". (Why confuse the child).

He pointed at mine again, "Mommy's juice?".

"Yes, Mommy's juice."

Pointed at my boob "Jack's juice".

Yes, baby, that's Jack's juice.

  1. Love it! There is nothing more fun than a walkin', talkin' nurser. Some of my very best and most fun memories with Trevor were related to his antics at that stage.

    Nice work, grasshopper!
