A pacifier is a substitute for the breast. There's nothing "wrong" with nursing your son for comfort. It's just not what we see every day in our society. Most people wouldn't look twice at a two-year old with a pacifier, but a lot of women get criticised for nursing beyond infancy. Even though breastmilk continues to provide nutrition and immune support for as long as a child nurses, I think most of us who continue nursing do it for the emotional benefits we see on a daily basis. I'd rather my child have a bond with a person (me) than get comfort from a plastic object (pacifier).
