Nummy Envy

Sam is nursing like a fiend. He was starting to show less interest in breastfeeding, just wanting the nummies a few times throughout the day. Then he got that cold a few weeks ago and totally regressed. So lately Hubby and I have been trying to just make sure he knows he has his other options when he has been nursing a lot more than usual. I’m not weaning him or anything; I plan to follow his lead, but if he has just nursed recently and then decides he wants to again simply because he saw some cleavage or something we’ll offer him a sippy cup or regular cup instead. That’s what happened yesterday. So Hubby went to get him a sippy cup with some milk and he brought it in for Sam. On his way he made a little joke for my benefit, holding the sippy cup up to his chest, spout out, and leaning toward Sam, who opened his mouth in anticipation of the cup. My milk came down…big time.

So add that to the list of ways to get your milk going: hearing your baby cry, hearing running or rushing water, leaning forward and jiggling a bit, watching your husband affix to his chest a bright blue and green cup.

Ella once tried to nurse on Al while he was taking a nap.

Boy did he wake up in a fright. He no longer naps with his shirt off.

Funny stuff!! I was just thinking today in the shower how weird it is that I 'let down' in there- with the water running & all.

I think it's cute you call it "nummies"... we haven't a name for it yet here!

Nummies is a good code word. I made the HUGE mistake of referring to it as boobies. Jack totally knows what boobies are and he can tell when even the most descreet woman is nursing in public. These boys!

Too funny! At least hubby can be involved in the process too, right?
BTW, your new profile pic is darling, but Wonder Woman will be sorely missed!

Hahahahaha!! That's too funny! Can't wait to share that with Sweet Hubby!

And our word here for it is "Ninny". When Stephen was about 2 that seemed to be his favorite word and he would say it LOUDLY everywhere we went. He wasn't nursing anymore, but his little brother was.

Funny story. It is amazing what causes let-down.

I am jealous. I have yet to actually feel my milk let down...

Perhaps as an experiment I will get Peter to try the sippy trick. I'm just curious if it would work.

We had to change our word the first time my baby said "titty". :) Then we just said nurse. I like nummies.
