Thursday I had the great joy to meet a new friend at B&N so she could help me copy recipes from cookbooks while we sat in the cafe. I had L with me, and she had her twin 4 year old daughters. First allow me to say, they are adorable!
I had a bottle for L, but she was more interested in nursing, so I went ahead and pulled up my shirt and let her nurse. The girls had never really seen anyone nurse a baby before and they got in close to see what L was doing. They were curious, maybe a little weirded out. I let them look, because, well, I'm not shy. And that started a little teaching moment.
I told them that L was drinking milk, that moms with babies can make milk. I asked if they'd ever seen a baby cow, horse or other animal drink milk from their mommy. They had, so that made things a little easier, and their mom helped with this point.
I asked if they thought it was kinda funny, because by the look on their faces they surely thought it was. They were pretty insistent that L would rather drink out of her bottle. :)
To the mom of those twin girls - I really hope it was okay! Maybe they'll grow up and be breastfeeding advocates and it'll all be traced back to their boring day at B&N! Maybe not. *shrug*
