    I'm an EBM feeder, but I still have a funny bit to add here...

    My son knows his mother is "cooking" for him instinctively even when he is down on the floor in his bouncy chair or playing with Dad, where he can't see me, because he'll smell the breastmilk and say "uuunnnngggrrryyy"

    As you are leaving for work she tries to stall you by asking for milk. You tell her no and she says "Just one????"

    Awww, Lucy does this too, she holds her two fingers out and goes "Just a little bit?"

    YKYNAT when you're in a preschool church class with your 4 and 2 year old and 5 other kids and when the question "Where does milk come from?" is asked. When the other kids yell COW, your two kids yell "MOMMY!"

    FWIW - it really IS okay to set some nursing manners with an older nursling.

    You can limit access to belly button by wearing a camisole or tanktop. You can gently remove the hand, move it somewhere else, and say "no thank you - that hurts mommy". LO like to "fiddle" - try a small toy or nursing necklace to play with.

    I do NOT put up with behaviors from my toddler that hurt me. I redirect & ask gently several times to please stop. If toddler still isn't listening I'll say that if he keeps doing ____ I'm going to put mommy milk away. If he still doesn't listen then I will gently put him down and close up shop. Toddler cries. We try again.

    I can not deal with twiddling anymore. Ever since AF and especially now during pg. It drives me nuts. And even though I've been detering her for almost 1 year she still wants to do it every stinking time.

    DD tries to twiddle, but usually will settle for gently rubbing my belly button, which I think is so sweet. However, very often she tells me to open my shirt so her toys can tandem nurse.
