Like when I'm pressuring her to put on her pajamas or something, and she'll say "but Baby Tiger doesn't know how to yet". (she refers to herself in the 3rd person, too, just like Elmo does...)

Just make sure to say somewhere along the line some of the things that babies do (including but not limited to nursing), and then what happens to babies (they grow), and some of the things they do once they are kids (including but not limited to nursing). Are you worried seeing her do this, or just worried that it means you *should* be worried?
    i'm not really WORRIED, worried. it just threw me for a loop. i think it's because my friend has a newborn baby, and she has watched her nursing.. and because i always tell her the story of when she was born, and how she only slept, nursed, and pooped. i think she has the associations from those things... but it could also be a role-playing thing, b/c she likes to pretend to be a specific animal, and she REALLY likes being "me", putting on my shirts and reading my e-book, etc..

    My 3yo told me he was a baby yesterday, so I wrapped him in a blanket, patted his bottom and rocked him. A few hours later he was a duck

    • my surprise baby: the one and only D-Man born 3 weeks late (5/5/08) at 9 lbs 14 oz and 21.5 inches, and
    • the shock H-Girl born about a week late (10/7/09) at 8lbs 15oz and 20.75 inches.


    If I am here I am covered in baby (probably two) and fighting for control of the keyboard.

    Family beds are awesome

    Wondering if you have PPD? Take the screening and see your doctor. You deserve to feel better.
