We didn't prepare our 3 1/2 year old, but she did fine. I thought i would try to shield her from my nursing our baby, but I was delusional! The first time she saw me feeding Aislinn, she climbed right onto my lap beside Aislinn (the baby) to check out what I was doing. She asked why I wasn't using a bottle. I told her that this was how many mommies feed their babies. Then she asked how the milk got into me. I told her that God made it and put it in me. She thought that was pretty cool and that was pretty much the end of it. However the funny thing is that I had cravings for strawberry flavored milk like crazy after Aislinn was born. I drank glass after glass day and night. So our 3 1/2 year old thought that Aislinn got to drink strawberry milk, too!
