So my 18 month old has been breastfed on demand and we have done some baby sign language. It worked really well and he could sign eat, drink, read and milk since about 1. Now that he signs milk, he had realised milk come from breastfeeding.
We recently went travelling and visited some distant relatives. He starts doing the milk sign when a cousin was holding him. I said no milk there but he kept furiously signing. I said milk is only from mum but he kept furiously signing. I offered him some milk from me but he didn’t actually want any.
I realised he was telling me she had big breasts! I tried so hard not to laugh and just distracted him. One things for sure though, he was spot on.
