nursing for comfort

Ever since my son started teething he is wanting to nurse more, I'm guessing because it is comforting. I don't mind, I was just wondering if this is normal. :)

  • I think babies nurse when teething because it relieves pressure... but, my DD is now 8 months and she just went though a nursing strike- where her sharp little teeth hurt her to nurse... so, it goes both ways. Good luck :)
