For everyone who says that after a certain age they will/do pump and give the breastmilk, I have a question. Would you give it cold? Or pump it right before you give it? I've refrigerated breastmilk before, and it doesn't look very appetizing cold...it just seems easier to keep whipping out the tit, IMO.

1 mom liked this

I nver pumped. I just nursed. DD stopped shortly before age four. Yes, she remembers nursing. I've asked her. I also asked how it made her feel. She responded with "happy" <3

Breastmilk separates after a while in the fridge. All the fatty stuff goes to the top. It's kind of gross :-/

I only ever pumped occasionally, and froze or refrigerated  it for special occasions (like when I was drinking).  I always heated it up in a bowl or cup of hot water!

My kids ate straight from the tap. I hated pumping. I have 4, only 2 went past age 2.

I had to pump because I work full time. I put it in the fridge or freezer.. Hubby always warmed it because of the separation.

I had to do the same thing. I was just wondering what people would do with it to put it in a sippy cup. Like I said, it seems like a lot of work to pump it, heat it properly, and put it in a sippy and make sure the kid drinks it. Now that my ds is over 1, he drinks regular milk during the day, and I bf when I'm home.

I get night nursing fir an extended time... 3 maybe a bit longer. But there was a chick I know that would bf her 4 year old at church.... and then she couldn't figure out why at 7 he still needs someone to go to the bathroom with him.

I still nurse at 18 months. She refuses whole milk but doesn't like breastmilk in her cup anymore. When she did he warmed it just the same as always. Now she eats solids and drinks water while I'm away, no milk at all.
