    Colleen, can you take a pic with your cell phone? I have taken a bunch of photos while E nurses and if it's my cell phone she doesn't notice.

    That's awesome he came back to the boob!!

    When I was pregnant w/CI, my milk dried up about 5 months into the pregnancy & ML weaned (she was a little over 2). I was ready for it though, the nipple pain had me almost crawling up the wall when she would nurse. After CI was born & my milk came in ML asked to nurse. I told her ok, she tried but it was like she had forgotten how. She didn't ask after that. I always thought it would've been sweet if she started back.

    Yeah well I AM a little crazy sometimes. I think it's gonna be just some here and there. He's waaay too busy to nurse frequently. so it's kind of perfect.

    Beth I'm totally gonna catch it with my cell next time. When I do, I'll post it for sure.

    Ok I got one! They aren't the best but I was trying to not distract him.
    First he climbed in my lap and nursed


    then he came back a few minutes later for a fly by

    Yeah now that it seems he's going to be nursing at least once a day, I have to work on latch with him. I'm wondering how to do that. Maybe getting him to open wide and say ahhhh will work?
