My DD1 was exactly this way, VERY avid nurser until almost age 4, she was just/still is a intense child. When she was a toddler, nursing allowed her to cope with the world. I couldn't set limits on nursing when she was 3, she just wasn't able to handle them. Nursing was her lifeline for everything, food, comfort, reassurance, when she needed help calming down, nursing helped her. This was her normal, and while things calmed down some the older she got, she is a child that is just more. More of everything, more energy, more sleep issues, more of driving me to insanity I guess, but she is an amazing child whose traits will serve her well in adulthood.
