This is my favorite threat ever! My little one, Bianca is 20 months and I love that she clearly asks to nurse. The intimate relationship we share is the best thing about being a mother and I know that nursing has a lot to do with it. I am not at all concerned about the central role of my breasts in our relationship. However, I have to admit that her yelling "horray, boob's here" when I arrive at the resturant where she has been waiting with my family, did make me blush! We've agreed to use sign language in these situations and she signs "sweet milk please" or "mommy's milk now" when she wants some!
I have a different kind of story to add: A few months ago my husband broke his shoulder and would wimper in his sleep from the pain. Whenever this would happen I would wake up with full and leaky breasts (which never happens anymore unless Bianca is really upset or I am aways from her for more then 8 hours). I have never felt the sexual connection to my daughter that I feel with my husband when he loves my breasts, but they do respond in a nurturing capacity for him!
