Comment on To the Mom of a Nursing Toddler by Morgan.
I love this.
My son is 28 months old and “still” nursing. I get touched out often. He wants to nurse at night. It can be frustrating. What I do when nursing makes me feel uncomfortable or I’m too tired is tell my son that the boobies need a break and that he can nurse again in the morning. Sometimes he cries. Sometimes he crys a lot. If he is upset we do other things like holding hands or singing after he nurses.
It’s a nursing relationship. I can’t become a walking boob just to make him happy. I offer when I feel like it. Some days I don’t offer at all. I ask him if we can nurse later. We both make compromises every day.
