Also, whilst over visitting my forementioned friend....her baby-girl is about a year and a half and she does nurse occassionally yet. Since her vocabulary is expanding and her knowledge-base is growing in leaps and bounds, the baby-girl sometimes will lean against her mom and pat her chest gently and pronounce, "milk!" Sometimes, my lil year and a half old friend wants a little variety I guess, cuz from time to time, she'll reach for ME and demand, "milk!", while trying to root under my shirt.
The first time it happened, I was taken aback. Uhhhh, what to
do...? Now, I redirect her toward mommy or I go get her a drink
in her sippee-cup. The thing is, she seems to be frustrated that
I don't oblige her desire to nurse. Maybe she's puzzled, I mean,
it LOOKS like I got the equipment.....but, I'm not the mommee (ala
Alanis's "I'm not the Doctor").
