Re: Weaned a year ago but still wants Ba-bas!
3 and a half is still very young, Mama. It's normal for a child to love mom's breasts, even if they were weaned earlier than yours was. I have a friend whose DS was weaned at age 1. One day, when he was around 3 years old, she was showering with him and he looked up at her and said "Mom, you have beautiful nipples. Can I kiss them?"
It's just the innocence of youth. Treasure it while it lasts.
When I was expecting baby #2, my 3.5 year-old DD went through a phase of wanting to be a baby. I found that humor was a great way to defuse the situation. She'd say something like "I'm a baby, wah wah," and I'd pick her up and cradle her and say "Yes, you're my little baby. Do you want a nap? Do you want your diaper changed?" And then I'd pretend to check her pants, and say "Ooooh, you have a stinky diaper!" Before long she'd be giggling and would have forgotten all about "being a baby." In the end, what she was really seeking was my attention.
Coolest thing my big girl said recently: "How can you tell the world is moving when you are standing on it?"
Coolest thing my little girl sang recently: "I love dat one-two pupples!"
