Feed Me! signs from your LO?

This isn't really support, but I thought it might be fun to share what our LOs do to tell us when they want to nurse.

Freddie (11 months today!) has just started to crawl up to me and butt me with his head, mouth open, jabbering away. He also gives (very slobbery!) kisses that way, but when he wants to nurse he is more urgent with the head-butting - especially into 'the girls' if he can reach, lol. Anyway. I am reveling in the preciousness of his actions because I know all these sweet little non-verbal signs are so fleeting... *sigh*

So, how do your babies tell you they want to BF?

My DD (who is 8 mo.) will latch onto my chin to tell me she wants to nurse. Sometimes she will also pull down my shirt too.

Oh, mama! That is so adorable. Keona is only 9 weeks so her signs are more the sucking on anything close to her mouth, hands, toys, clothing... hitting my boobies when Im holding her and getting her grumpy face and squawking at me.

I am teaching sign language and my ds squeezes his hand together (he is almost 13 months) like he is milking. LOL, I love it

We are working on signing here, but he's not quite got anything yet. Maybe "More" but he's such a clapper it's hard to tell. That and he always wants more food, lol!

Re: Feed Me! signs from your LO?

We're working on the sign for milk and when I say "do you want milk?" and do the sign she gets a big old grin on her face. She's eight months old and I'm guessing her doing the sign is not far off. Currently she just lunges toward my chest with a wide open mouth. If I have a shirt on that has skin exposed (think tank top) she starts suckling around on my skin and moving down my chest until she's in the vicinity of my breasts and then starts grunting and getting really mad when she can't latch on through my shirt. It's really funny.
