I am new to this site. I have a 22 month old dd. From the moment she was born I placed her at the breast and she was right at home there ever since! We had a wonderful nursing relationship. After 15 mo, I grew tired of nursing and started weaning her and there was pressure from family to wean her. After she was totally weaned I realized what a mistake it was. She really loved it. Now we are into the toddler stages where she is getting molars, falling, getting furstrated and overstimulated. I wished we could still nurse as it makes "everything better". One day this week when she was completely overstimulated from a playdate and wouldn't calm down, I offered her the breast and she took it happily, stayed at the breast for 15 min and switched sides and fell asleep. It was so easy. I have been using the "secret weapon" now when she gets hurt, needs a nap, or a regroup. She is loving it and asks for it. I am afraid to tell DH for fear he wouldn't undrestand. Has anyone else been through this? Is this really weird for me to resume after weaning? I know I don't have any milk and it is only for comfort and it makes my life and my DD's life easier.
Sorry this is long winded.
I would appreciate any replies.
