  • you can let him try... warning he might bite cause he doesnt know what to do... but with my DS we had the same thing and sometimes still do DS is 20mos and DD is 4 mos... most likely he will just kiss your boobie or poke it... DS was breast fed so he still kinda knows what is going on... you could also get him a baby doll that he can play with when you are nursing.... and he might even start to sit with you when you nurse and he will "nurse" his baby... DS's baby is the only way we get him to take a nap...

  • I would let him try...it seems that he is curious and maybe a little jealous of the attention the new baby is getting. He will probably loose his interest in if afterwards.

  • snuggle with him while feeding tell him this is how baby eats & he is a big boy. put some milk on your finger & let him taste it.
