    This is so cool! Thanks for sharing the stories. I hope that my DS will start nursing his toys too in a few months.

    Boy can I relate. My daughter took expressed breast milk from a bottle for only a couple of months. I lost my job when she was 5 months old and was able to stay home at that point. She never took a bottle again, only a sippy cup. When she got a doll for CHristmas that had a bottle, she wanted to throw it away. She then proceeded to nurse her baby.

    Poor kid, she now has about 12 "babies" she is nursing.

    When we first brought her home, my neice and nephew were fascinated by how she ate. They couldn't figure where the milk came out or what I was hooking up in there. THis of course started the inspection of their own equiptment to see if they could feed the baby. THis also raised the question of why do boys have nipples. I decided rather than give the fetal development answer, we would go with " they are there for decoration."

    Thats so cute! After being at the hospital when I gave birth (not in the room), my 4 year old niece now gives birth to her stuffies and then nurses them.
    Lets hope all this "practicing" makes some great mommies one day.

    Forgot to mention, our pediatrician has a beautiful photo of a little girl in a child's rocking chair nursing her doll. Seeing that made me realize I was in a good place

    Awww, I can't wait till my littleun is old enough to do stuff like that. Well, I can wait but I look forward to it. Do any of your boys try to nurse or do they seem to understand that it's a mommy thing (other than bridgenbose's nephew)?

    My grandma tells a story about my mom nursing her dolls and when my grandma asked her what she was feeding her dolly she said, "commisaries" (they were an air force family). So cute.

    My daughter who is going to be 3 the end of March did the same thing the other day, she was talking so sweetly to her baby and it made me so proud. We may have another BF advocate on our hands.

    Good question on boys! Jeremy thinks it's very funny when I occasionally pretend to nurse a stuffed animal (mostly when I'm trying to get him to nurse), but so far he hasn't taken that initiative himself. I'd be interested to hear if other boys do this. He does have a sweet little voice he uses when "talking" to stuffed animals (when he isn't chewing their tails off, that is). I've noticed he uses the same voice with (real) babies. How do they know these things?

    Very sweet! Doesn't it feel great to know you are setting a good example? BTW my DD just did this for the first time last night as well-what a coincidence! (okay, so Haylee beat her to it and is several months younger, but who's counting, right, Erin a/k/a Ms. Competitive? )
