I should clarify my answers, or lack thereof on the first question: Because of this very problem, I usually specify what I mean. To me, "last" anything means the thing before the one closest to you in time (so, last week for me is August 13-17), but I know that it means different things to different people, so I'll almost always say something like, "Last May, by which I mean 2011, I was teaching this class..." Just to avoid confusion, even if it does sound belabored.

As for nursing, the default meaning for most ladies in Southern California is breastfeeding, but to me, it means all of the above choices that you listed, so I picked all three.
