Ah, linguistic peculiarities. If someone said "last May" to me, I'd initially understand it to mean 2011, as 2012's May is still "this May" to me, but I'd ask for clarification as I know not everyone feels the same way (as the poll results show!).

"Nursing", despite the nurseries offering general care and play, means breastfeeding to me in this context, although it's not a word I'd use myself. I'd refer to playing with a baby and caring for a baby in those terms.
