I have a "different" kind of question. I never breastfed my oldest, but I did and still am breastfeeding the baby. My oldest is 2 1/2 and has seen me feeding the baby just about every time. So my 2yo just leaned over and tried to suckle on my breast like the baby does. I said "no, boobies are for babies" and that was the end of it.
What would you have done/ or do in this situation?

I wouldn't call it boobies and I wouldn't say breastfeeding is for babies. The World Health Org recommends breastfeeding until at least age 2 for all children. My kids were all nursing well beyond age 2.5.
I called breasts and breastfeeding something that I wouldn'd mind my child saying in public from the beginning. With my toddler grandson we call it magic milky. Magic because my son and I wish we had some. It is so much harder to take care of a baby/toddler when you can't breastfeed. I don't know why anyone would actuallly choose not to breastfeed.
