If you have ever nursed a baby into toddlerhood, or have nursed a younger child around their older siblings then odds are your child has imitated you breastfeeding. Maybe they even tried to use your breast pump! There's nothing cuter than a sweet, innocent little girl or boy pretending to feed babies the way nature intended! Enjoy these fan photos and if you would like your own included please e-mail it to: email@example.com
"The picture is of my daughter Jaemara who I breastfed until she was just over 2. She was still being B/F at the time of the picture and I was pregnant with her younger brother."
Casidee, 2 1/2, nursing Snow White!
"3 year old Madeline phones home"
"Sophie nursing her twin babies :) She was almost 2 years old here." - Lauren, Moderator of our facebook page
"The child in the picture is my third and his name is Jacob. He was 20 months old when my youngest, Justin was born. After Justin was born I had some nipple trauma from improper latch and I had to pump for a week on one side until it was healed. Jacob saw it on my bed at one time and decided that he better help mommy get milk for the baby. I guess he thought, if you cant beat them, join them. It was so cute."
"My son is Riley and he just adores his little sister Kiara - I had extreme nipple sensitivity with Riley as he was tongue-tied and combined with my sensitivity and mastitis every 2 months, it was a struggle, but well worth it. When Kiara came along 17.5 months later, same thing - tongue tied, but not so sensitive. Riley used to get her before I fed her to help me out as he didn't like seeing me in pain. Such a sweet little boy, and still 2 yrs on, still doting and loving towards her
- plus the occasional whack in the back on the head when i'm not looking! :) "
"She's in the right position but where's the milk at? "
"When I was 6 months pregnant with my second child, I took a short trip home to visit a dear friend. My 15 month old daughter, Lola, was still nursing at this time and during one of our sessions, my friend's daughter, 4 year old Ivey, decided to keep us company on the nursing couch. I love that her expression mirrors the oxytocin induced bliss phase of nursing. Ivey had recently become a big sister herself so she must have seen that look on her mom's face quite a bit."
"The picture is of me and my 3 girls who loved it when I nursed and they would bring their babies out so we could all do it together. The funny thing is they wanted little boppies too!! LOL"
"This is my daughter (then 22 months) pretending to nurse her baby as I was nursing her baby sister. She even used a pillow. A proud moment!"
"Why doesn't Daddy have any milk?"
"A picture of my 15 month old Olympia (who still nurses frequently) breast feeding her baby doll. She nurses all of her stuffed animals too! "
"My then 16 month old daughter received a baby doll for Christmas, to prepare her for her upcoming role as a big sister that was expected in February that year.
After we finished opening presents she wanted to settle down with a mid-morning nursing session. She insisted "Dolly" got the same privileges she was enjoying and refused to nurse that day unless Dolly got to nurse at the same time. 'All for one and one for all'"
Logan about 20 months old pretending to breastfeed a doll, his little brother Connor was a couple of months old.
Finally here's my 2 year old daughter pretending to nurse her baby doll. I hope this post made you smile or laugh. Its truly beautiful to see adorable little children being sweet loving mommies and daddies.
