Breastfeeding a talking toddler

Nope this is not one of those threads discussing the merits or otherwise of breastfeeding past the age of 1.

DS is almost 2 and has a rapidly expanding vocabulary. Tonight after his bedtime feed he unlatched and sleepily murmured "Mmm...Cowww...." as he drifted off to sleep.

As flattering as this endearment may be, he's never had cow's milk as a drink so I am not sure where the association came from.

What interesting things have your toddler said to you on the boob?

I've learnt my lesson too 5madthings . The wails of "booooooby" at toddler group were deafening today.

We have some very peculiar behaviours from DS, as he often includes them in conversation,he squeezes them and stares at the milk that has been produced or he will shout for booby 1 or 2 regardless of the company we find ourselves in.I love nursing a toddler, it is such a wonderful experience.

Mine calls it by a non anatomical related name. But it's not hard to guess what he's after when he pulls my neckline down and tries to dive head first into my top.

DS used to just call it "milk", using "milk in a cup" or "milk from you" if he needed to specify. He once said he liked it more than dinosaurs. He's stopped now but he did ask me today how mummies get milk into their boobs. I didn't know how to answer it though!

DS went through a stage where he seemed convinced I had three boobs!

He'd ask for "the other one" then say "no, the other one". I'd say I only have two boobs, and he'd say "no, three, mummy. Where's the other one" confused

No idea what that was all about!

My 2yo tucks my breasts back in to my top when he's finished and says a tender 'bye bye ooh-ooh'. 'Ooh-ooh being what he's always called bfing for some reason.
