My daughter is jealous of her new brother and sisters breastfeeding?
I have 3 month old triplets and 2 and 4 year old girls. I've been strictly breastfeeding the babies, like I did with my older two. It was so difficult at first but I'm finally getting the hang of it.
My 2 year old wasn't completely weaned off breastmilk until she was 16 months (really late, I know), so it hasn't been too long since my breasts were her territory. She started pulling my shirt down and climbing all over me when I nurse the babies. I've been letting her nurse occasionally for a comfort (mostly at night when she would get her bottle).
My mother-in-law got wind of this and thinks it's perverted and innapropriate. My husband isn't sure how he feels about it, but he's more worried my 4 year old will start to want to breastfeed. So far she has not expressed any interest, but even if she wanted to breastfeed occasionally as well, I wouldn't think it was the worst thing in the world.
What do you think? Should I stop this? I produce a lot of milk, so that isn't really an issue. It's what is healthy for my daughter.
