    DD is 13 months, and whenever I want to take something from her I say, "Thank you!" and she hands whatever to me. So she has also learned that when she says "thank you" I give her what she wants, and I know that means she wants something...

    Yestrerday she was playing around on the floor...it was late and I wanted to nurse her to relax her and get her ready for bed. So I hold her and lift my shirt, and she looks at my boob and says, "Thank you" well it sounds more like "dah too" (thats how she says thank you) and leans right in and latches on with a smile!

    SOOOO CUTE! I loved it

    OMG how could I leave this out:
    yesterday I was nursing DD at my cousins house and all you heard every few seconds was DD going "mmmmMMMMMmmmm" it was sooo funny, everyone was laughing! When she eats or wants food or is enjoying food she says "mmmmMMMMMmmmmm" with inflection. Lately she has been doing that when she nurses, it is hysterrical! I guess I know my milk must taste yummy!

    All my kids have done this. My 11 month old hasn't quite got the hang of it yet but he sure tries. When he actually gets it to squirt he laughs hysterically.

    I love reading these threads. My LO is only 3 months old. I came here when she was about a month old and read the thread about things your toddler says about/during nursing. It was one of the three reasons I decided to nurse past a year.

    ...they have their priorities straight!

    This morning I was trying to get Evan to unlatch and get up out of bed by telling him all the fun things we had planned today. He unlatches, holds up his finger and says, "But first I have to nur-nur!"

    We go through this too, but DD just looks up at me and either says "uhnuh" or shakes her head and gives me the sign for milk
