My dd#2 is 8 months old and very distractable right now.  I want to nurse her for comfort when she gets a boo-boo, but she doesn't seem interested when I offer.  I always comforted my first daughter with the breast when she got hurt, but I can't remember at what age she started looking for it when she got boo-boos.  I was curious at what age some of your LOs started nursing for comfort with boo-boos.  I'm sure when the world is less exciting she'll be more inclined.  Thanks!

Blissfully happy and devoted wife to my best friend and anamored by my sweet baby girls, DD1 (8/8/08) and DD2 (06-17-11). Proud attached, tandem breastfeeding, baby-wearing, blw mama.
