I am curious about whether people who nurse toddlers start to set some kinds of limits on when the child can nurse, and if so, what they are. I don't let her nurse in the middle of the night any more -- I wasn't getting enough sleep that way. But I keep going to and fro about whether I should just let her nurse whenever she asks for it ("Don't Refuse!"), or stick to fixed times of day when it's legitimate. I don't want to go back to nursing 8 times a day, and sometimes I figure she's asking to nurse on a whim, or to make me forgive her (e.g. she deliberately breaks a crayon, I say "Don't do that, please", and she says "NURSE!"). What I often seem to end up doing is a half-way policy -- we always nurse when she wakes up in the morning, after her nap, and at bed-time; if she wants it at other times, I try to talk her out of it or distract her; if that doesn't work, I may give in. But I wonder if this is confusing for her; would it be better to be either stricter, or less strict? What do you all do?
