HELP!!! Not sure what to do?

I am currently 26 weeks pregnant. Last night, I noticed a little bit of clear fluid coming out of one of my nipples. I thought it was a good sign as I trouble producing enough milk with DS. Next morning, DS crawled into bed with me. I don't wear nightshirts only bottoms as I suffer bad insomnia and if the shirt bunches/crinkles/anything, it wakes me up. So he points to my breast and says, "baby milk". I have no idea where he got that bc we didn't teach him. He is 25 mos and hasn't BF'd since he was 7 mos old. (ironically enough, it took over 12 mos for my milk to completely go away)

Well, he leans over and LATCHES on! What the heck?? Where is this coming from? Did he smell my leakage?

What do I do?

I grabbed him, tickled him and distracted him. Then I got up and quickly put a shirt on. He has pulled up my shirt and said, "milk"...once today.

What is going on? Am I going to have a problem in 3 mos when I BF'd this baby?

wow...maybe he was somewhere where someone was breastfeeding or saw it on tv...My 3 year old told me all about how the new baby will drink milk from my boobies, and I don't have the slightest idea where/when she figured that out.....

I'd just tell him, yes, when the NEW baby comes he will drink milk from my boobies, but big boys like you drink milk from a cup. And then also bring up other things big boys will get to do that a baby won't...like big boys can also walk, play, go to the store with daddy..etc....

It's crazy what they learn isn't it? Things just seem to come out of thin air!

He keeps patting my breasts and saying "milk" so I'm going to try your suggestion.

Thanks,

Good luck!! My son although not trying to nurse, always wants to have his head or hand on mine...he's going to have a hard time when baby invades his territory...haha these kids!
