...and it was from my mother !
Last night while I was feeding my 10 month old grapes my mom kept saying "mmmm those are gooood numeez." Well, 'numeez' is the name I've always used for nursing. So i'm always telling her "mom, numeez is nursing, not food". So i told her again last night and she got all pissy:
"Well, He's always gonna need it for comfort then if you don't allow other things to take its place. He's gonna be two wanting nummeez"
"I think it's totally fine and good for a two year old to nurse. A lot of bfing mothers breastfeed for an extended amount of time. It's not just about food, but also a comfort and security thing I don't plan on just taking away"
"Well, i guess it will all depend on his demeaner," she said so matter of factly. He's going to end up coming up to you in public ripping your shirt off demanding you give him some boob! "
I left it at that after saying he hopefully won't behave that way.
For one, that's why i call it nummeez and not 'some boob'. And he hardly ever wants to nurse in public anymore anyways. he's too distracted. will this change? do your older LOs 'rip your shirt off' in public?
