My 2 yo is curious :o)
She is adopted also (4 bio, 2 adopted) and is 28 months. She wanted baby's "juice cup" last I let her (for the first time ever) and she just laid there not sure what to did I really:giggle: but it was sweet, and I felt bonding with her that was special. I asked her not to bite mommy, but I think I scared her away from trying to suckle now because she thinks it will hurt me.....I had no intentions of nursing her, but don't want to turn her away either. She is showing more interest than the baby (I am working on lactating for!!)
Plus, if I could get her to pacify at the breast, she might help my milk too?? Maybe?? Is is right that it is a little uncomfortable at first?

So, today out of no where, she starts pulling up my shirt and wants boobies! In front of others in the family who didn't know anything about last night....

I don't know what I am asking really...maybe for someone to tell me it's fine?

What do you'all think?

I think it's great! Especially since I gues she never got bm? And yup, it'll help your milk production along!

I don't see anything wrong with it. Some people nurse their friend's baby so why not an adopted baby/young child.
Just ignore other people and their comments. Your her parent now and you should choose what is best for her.

I think that it so wonderful.
She is curious and her curiosity on this level is such a positive thing for you, her and building up your supply.
