I would like her to nurse for comfort because It helps keep supply up. In fall, I'll be going back to school but I'd really like to nurse as long as feesable or until she weans herself.
Is there a way for her to decide to nurse for comfort more? I'm not against keeping the pacifier around for rough car rides or daddy to help, but I'd like to be able to nurse for comfort too. Should I wean her of the pacifier?
Thanks for help.
Do you cosleep? My babes would have stayed latched "comfort suckling" ALL NIGHT LONG if I had let them. They also loved suckling during bathtimes. And just about any other time we were sking-to-skin.

I survived 16 mos! Ask me about breastfeeding a baby with posterior tongue tie, high palate, and weak oral motor skills- whew!
There is no one right answer. The use of pacifiers is statistically associated with early weaning. That doesn't mean your baby will wean early. You may not be able to have it both ways - use a pacifier when you want and a breast when you want.
I would wean from the pacifier and daddy can use a little finger or find other ways to sooth the baby. I believe mothers and babies should maintain a symbiotic relationship until the baby can get around on their own (9-12 months). I don't think independence is a positive thing at 2 months.

The more I've thought about this the more I've been thinking the same thing. We are going to wean from the pacifier starting during the day. And it won't be one of our first choices to help soothe. I'm going to wear her in the day more.
Thanks for the imput.
