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: firstname.lastname@example.org
Logan about 20 months old pretending to breastfeed a doll, his little brother. Connor was a couple of months old.
Addison LOVED bf'ing her babies! Didn't take her long to catch on!
My son was tongue-tied and couldn't nurse well for the first few months, until he had his frenulum clipped several times, so I was pumping 8 times a day and feeding him almost exclusively from a bottle. Here is his big sister Eliana (2 years old)pumping milk for "her baby."
In this photo Bailee (my friends daughter) and my almost 4 yr old Shaylen are "pumping" during their pretend play being mommies. At the time I was still nursing my 14 month old and pumping a lot as I was finishing my teaching degree.
This is my youngest son, Tom. He was breastfed until 3 years and 7 months, and as you can see, loves to extend the same bounty to his doll!(His older sister was found at the age of 2, trying to express breast milk from herself to fill the little bottle that came with a doll she was given!)
I just wanted to share this photo of my daughter Seren who was 3 at the time, breastfeeding her baby.
My son (11m) crawling over the table, my daughter (4) nursing her dolly, and their favourite play mate(2).
This is my son Jacob (age 4) nursing a doll
My daughter, Freya aged 4, breastfeeding her twins just like Mummy
Attached is a picture of my 22mnth old daughter Breanna. She has become fascinated with breastfeeding since the birth of her brother (6mnths) and attempts to feed all her dolls and teddies- she has also tried it on her bewildered baby brother!
Wanted to have this added to the blog. It is a picture of my two year-old feeding her younger brother “just like mommy” as her brother struggles to get out of her grasp. She tries so hard to be like mommy.
This is my son, Bennie, breastfeeding his Elmo doll at 22.5 months old. His brother, Alexander, was born when he was 19 months old. After watching me feed Alexander for a few months, each time he would see me going for the boppy, he would insist that it was time to "feed Elmo" and try to wrestle the pillow away from me. Incidentally, because of complications, I only feed Alexander on one side, and Bennie got it right!
