    I was at a zoo and saw the baby gorilla nursing...although I knew she was only a month younger than M1 and at the time she was 18MO. We had actually just recently weaned and it made me feel a little guilty that the gorilla was still nursing hers on-demand

    also goats milk is closer in composition than cows milk but as my dad puts it cow= big animal, goat= small animal, big animal= lots of milk

    I love the idea of making a book about nursing. I have some pictures of different animals nursing, and am sure I could get more. Then add in pictures of my nurslings!! Love it!

    I once saw a cat nursing a kitten that was unrelated to her. It had been years since the cat had birthed kittens. Induced lactation!
