My 2 yr old son keeps trying to take my breast out of my shirt and nurse. How can I get him to stop doing this?



I've tried telling him no, those are for babies and handing him a sippy cup of milk. I've tried distracting him with an activity or toys but nothing I have tried seems to work.

Let him try some BM in a cup maybe? He probably only wants it so much because he can't have it.

I give it to him in a cup. :/ he doesn't like it. So I don't understand why he keeps doing it. Haha

Maybe hes just jealous of your girl? That's a hard one. I've seen people suggest letting them do it but I don't think I'd be able to if I'd stopped BFing. But they say that when you let them try it they usually lose interest?

I might have to try that. He was only bf for two weeks ad now he's obsessed. Poor kid. :(

Hmm thats a tough one, if your comfortable with him having a little nibble I say go for it. If not, I'm sure it will pass on its own :)
