The breastfeeding. . . puppy?

My son has always been an active nurser–one hand is usually playing with my fingers, and at least one leg is kicking out. When he was small, and completely contained on my lap, this was sometimes less obvious than now, at 22 months old and 34 inches tall. Monday night we were out at dinner in Harvard Square in a big group of friends celebrating one friend, and in between the appetizers and main courses my son decided he wanted to nurse. This wasn’t a problem, of course, until a toddler foot–complete with a sandy shoe–started flailing its way up onto the table. My husband lunged for the plate and glass in the danger zone and did in fact rescue them in time, while I was able to rotate my chair so that the active foot was pointing away from the table for the future.

This YouTube video, of puppies nursing, captures the activity and energy of my son’s nursing–he also loves animal videos, so we watched it a couple times already today.
