    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?"

    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.

    mine is selfish. She rarely nurses toys. Today at lunch she told me that she wants the baby to stay inside me because she's not sharing her milk with him!

    DD was nursing last night while I was lying down, she was laying over me. She popped off casue she heard a noise and milk came out of her mouth onto my nipple. She looked and said, "uh, a mess...clean it up mom!"
