Out of the Mouths of Nurslings

Kailey, daughter Anna, and husband Josh

Has your child ever said something so clever, endearing, hilarious or simply surprising that you couldn’t help but share it with those around you? Our new feature, Out of the Mouths of Nurslings, gives breastfeeding parents a place to share those words with readers around the United States and even the world.

Kailey from New York City starts us off with a conversation she had with her daughter, Anna.

“I walked into the room to see my two and a half year old stuffing my bra under the pillows on my bed and asked, ‘Anna, why are you putting my bra under the pillow?’ Her response: ‘So you can grow more boobs.’ Interested, I asked further, ‘Why would I want more boobs? I think the two I have are plenty, don’t you?’ She ended it with, ‘Because I love that milk!’ I will never forget the combination of pride in her imagination, delight that she loved nursing as much as I did, and reassurance that I still had milk enough to love.”

If you’d like to share your memorable moment with readers of the New Beginnings blog, send a brief recap (picture, too, if you’d like!) to Amy at [email protected].
