It's normal. And there is nothing in any way wrong with breastfeeding, it is an entirely healthy activity. Just as there can not be too many hugs or too much healthy food, there cannot be too much nursing.
That said, nursing is a two way street! If you are feeling like you need less nursing, then it is entirely appropriate to set limits as you wish.
See to me, this is a great time for nursing. Because again, nursing is good for your daughter and candy is not, nor is jumping if it is in a dangerous place or way. It sounds like she is toughing it out, if toughing it out means learning to handle disappointment. She is not only not getting the candy but you, her mommy, giver of all goodness, are the one denying her the candy!
Of course, kids need to hear and learn no, but they will have natural, normal feelings about being denied. Wanting to nurse and reconnect with you makes perfect sense in such a scenario. I would also suggest, maybe look at how you are saying no. I can get pretty impatient and sharp with my kids and have found my kids needing reassurance and comfort more due to how I say things than what I am actually saying, if that makes sense.
The recommendation is that weaning happen gradually and with love. The gradually part is of course going to vary, but in my experience, the more gradual, the better.
