For example, the other day we were in the waiting room at the cardiologist (to check out what turned out to be a completely innocent heart murmur) The room was very small and it was crowded. There were two adult men and one teenage boy there. I was not comfortable nursing. There was no way to do it discreetly. There was only one open chair and it was right next to the teenage boy. I ended up walking DS back and forth, back and forth like I did when he was a baby. Trouble is, he is now 30 pounds! And we were waiting there 45 minutes! I totally think the reason he wanted to nurse was boredom. And he has not learned any manners yet. He pulls up my shirt and cries. I heard somebody mention in another thread about boredom/attention nursing. What can you do about it? And how to begin teaching manners at 18 1/2 months?
