My DD is 1 yr and still nursing strong, which is great even though I had originally thought to wean her at this point but now that it's here I can't imagine doing it. Here is my question though, is it possible to nurse her too much at this age? We nurse usually once in the night, once or twice in the morning, once or twice in the afternoon and before bed. Sometimes I "use" nursing as a way to calm her down if she's overtired or cranky or whatever but I'm starting to feel like I use it as a way just to make her quiet down or calm down (like the way my cousin uses tylenol for her over tired crazy from sugar kids)..............can you use BF like a drug? Should I be helping her find other coping methods at this point or is it still ok to use BF like this at this age? I love BF DD, but I worry about her associating food with comfort later. Do I have a reason to be worried or is it just my mother's voice in my head?
