Gabe has not nursed for nearly six months now. And in all that time (excepting perhaps the first couple weeks after weaning) he has never expressed an interest in nursing again, or even indicated that he remembers what nursing is. He's had plenty of ongoing opportunities to see my breasts and touch them, but he's always called them "tummy," or just touched the nipples and laughed.
Today I was sitting on the toilet before my shower and Gabe pointed at my breasts and said "milk." He said it several times, and he even acted like he was about to put his mouth to one of them. But he didn't. Then he went back to touching the nipple and laughing.
I've been feeling a little tender lately, being 12 weeks pregnant, and I think my breasts have swelled some. Perhaps Gabe senses a slight odor that reminds him of nursing? I don't know if it's possible to start producing milk this early in pregnancy, but perhaps there's something about being pregnant that changes how I smell...kwim?
