Older kids and nursing

Has anyone had any cute questions older children have asked about nursing? 

My son is 3.5 years old, he's the youngest of all his cousins so he had never seen (nor remembers) breast feeding before his little sister was born a few weeks ago. When we all first got home he asked his dad if he made milk for his sister too. LOL we couldn't help but laugh. My oldest nephew was also really confused about why he couldn't feed his baby brother that's due this summer with his "nipples" lol. Anyone else have funny stories?

My daughter is 3 and baby sister is 2 weeks old today.  DD1 also asked daddy if he made milk baby sister could drink.  She also says baby sister drinks milk out of my belly (she just doesn't know all the right words for everything yet lol).  It's pretty cute!  She goes to daycare so only sees babies have bottles and obviously doesn't remember being breastfed.

My dd is 7 and rolls her eyes when i whip out my boob. She turns away while he's latching lol and if i say i have to feed him or he wants boobie she just goes 'awwwwe' and rolls her eyes. She fine with it but you can tell she gets a lil embarrassed almost. I dunno. My son is 9 and oblivious.

My son asked me if I ate chocolate would I make chocolate milk! One day a check out lady at Walmart asked him if she could take his sister home with her. He said " no you don't have big breast to breastfed her" the lady looked stuned and laughed. She thought it was funny he called them breast and not boobs. He is 4 1/2.

Lol I breastfed all three of mine but I haven't had a baby since my oldest was 2 so I guess she forgot. I now have a. 6 year old, 4 year old, and a newborn. I was feeding the baby when I got back from the hospital and my daughter said "how are you feeding him? Where is the milk bottle?". Lol! We had to explain that the milk comes from mommy and when they were babies they had my milk too.

My 3yr old is too much into my breastfeeding moments with the baby. For one he calls my boobs pounds. So everytime I go to feed the baby he ask, Jeremiah got to eat your pound? He told daddy this morning while baby was laying on him, "No Jeremiah can't eat your pound, lol."  Other than that he just says he can't drink that because he is a big boy.

He has one time tried to grab my boob and help put it into baby brother mouth and I had to laugh and stop him and tell him thank you but mommy got it. I'm just thankful that nobody knows what he means when he says pounds, lol.

Cute! My oldest has grown up knowing that breastfeeding is perfect for babies. He tells people, "Milo needs to nurse." I get more questions why people bottlefeed from him. He doesn't understand.
