My 13-month-old who also never wanted to nurse is now interested in breasts. Kids are weird!

So you thought about nursing him now? I've sort of wondered about if I have another baby and this baby is interested in nursing, would I let her? She actually would be really great at learning to nurse NOW if I had any milk left, since she likes to try new foods...


Wow. That's so interesting that he asked.

I know that there are people who can nurse through a pregnancy and then in tandem afterwards. Not that I'm suggesting it!

When I was pumping all the time, my sister's kids saw me do it, lots of times. One day when they were at home, the girl child, who was 2 ish, stuck a toy baby bottle up under her shirt and announced "I pumping!"


Oh funny

Well, if he ever asks again, just let him know he can try, but it really doesn't taste as good as big boy food like chocolate pudding or strawberry yogurt.

Not sure it will work, but anytime I've ever said no, my kids think I'm holding out on something awesome. Maybe Jack is the same?
