Re: My nursling is 3!

I feel a little bad, up till about a month or so he was still at 3 times a day. I was hoping to get rid of the morning session, but he decided with not much from me, to fall asleep with me just cuddling him, I couldn't believe he gave that session up so easily, for naps he still sometimes asks but I am kind of holding back, but he still is asking, and getting pretty much daily a morning nurse. I am kind of ready to be done, but sad at the same time. So long story short, about once a day

Basically all the same benefits breastfeeding has for an infant, it has those same benefits for a child at any age.

For us, it's a nice way to connect and snuggle as part of our bedtime and rest time routine. Sure, there are other ways to do it, but it's the deepest "groove" in her memory of comfort, and it doesn't cause me any difficulty or strain. In fact, it's easier to nurse her because I can lie down and close my eyes, too! Plus, it's good for the child and good for the mother--significantly reducing risk of breast cancer in mothers and daughters, increasing antibodies in the toddler, and all that good stuff.
