My daughter just turned two and sometimes it is really frustrating how attched to me she still is! I'm still nursing, which I don't have a problem with, but she wants to do it all the time! I know it's not because she's hungry because she eats lots of table food, it's more for comfort. I don't have a problem doing it a few times a day, but she literally wants to do it every 10-15 minutes! As long as I am sitting in the room with her she plays well and can entertain herself, but as soon as I get up and try to do something she's after me whining and crying and wanting to nurse! She is getting better with my husband, she'll spend some time with him but not very long.
I hate to complain because I know one day I will miss this closeness and I like that I am her favorite person, but sometimes it is just exhausting! I can barely get anything done! I hate having to let her cry, I hoped she would be over this by now. Anyone else?

I highly recommend the book MOTHERING YOUR NURSING TODDLER by Norma Jane Bumgarner. Also, a La Leche League meeting would probably be a great place to get tips form other moms with nursing toddlers. Some groups have toddler meetings, and most groups have this book available for checkout in the group library. Find your local group at http://www.lllusa.org/groups.php

Next question overall
What do you really think about MOMS who have several tattoos?
