Amen, Embee.

When my son seems to want to nurse all day, I try to ask myself if I have been too busy lately to really get down and play, read, sing, be silly, etc. Sometimes I think he asks to nurse because he doesn't know how else to get my attention, kwim?

It has also helped me to remember that a child's development is rarely linear. They are like glaciers, taking steps backward and forwards, sometimes all at once (and with a nipple in their mouths! ouch!)

Good luck!
