At that age, I cut all nursing down to when they are only hungry. There is no "hanging out". There is eating. Within a week or two of that, mine quickly learned that mommy is not for playing. Mommy is for cuddling, snuggling and eating. I don't allow that behavior, EVER. It is okay to say no sometimes. It is okay to protect your own body while meeting their needs.
