Hey there, mamas!
On another forum I'm on, a question has been posed by a mama of a soon-to-be one-year-old. She's concerned that with extended nursing, the child learns to associate food with comfort, which can contribute to obesity and eating disorders. While I know (and have assured her) that toddlers associate comfort from the mom attached to the breast rather than just the "food" within, AND that nursing isn't like having a meal or snack of solids, she and a few others would like to see some "documentation" of this info. I've delved into Kellymom quite a bit and couldn't come up with anything; does anyone have any resources for this?
Thanks in advance.
