    I was at a friend's daughter's 1st birthday yesterday and she handled an onlookers comment so beautifully I thought I'd share. Her daughter pretty much just reached down and helped herself. The onlooker asked if perhaps she needed a cover or something (not the most malignant comment I've ever heard bit still) as she was pretty exposed (if you were all up in her business that is). My friend simply said, "Its my house."

    hehe, I've said that too- if it's my house, I make it abundantly clear that I am not going to sacrifice our comfort for someone else's- I mean THEY can leave if they're not happy

    With DD my standard response was that the "WHO recommends nursing for at least 2 years" Most people i've meet won't argue after that if they do then a joke will usually shut them up.. something like I'm sure he/she will be done by college/graduation/wedding etc. I'm also one who doesn't really tell anyone that they bf unless asked.. DH likes to tell everyone but he doesn't realize that we're not in a very BFing friendly area or that it isn't really the norm.. but dh is a bit clueless when it comes to birth/babies and everything that goes with it.

    DD has started pulling my shirt down to get to the goodies quite frequently. I usually just stop what I'm doing if I can and let her nurse. Sometimes its not possible (like in line at the store). At what age can I hope for her to understand that she has to actually ask first instead of just diving in? Is it something I can hope for soon or are we talking age 3 or 4?

    my dd asks, by tugging gently on my shirt and looking up at me with her question face. We don't nurse during the day anymore so she doesn't really ask then unless she's tired.

    Maybe teach her the sign for milk? DD2 signs when she wants to nurse.
