Re: Wondering why....
I understand the feeling too! My DD is 18 months old, and I love toddler nursing! First, it is so nice that she can sign for milk when she wants it during the day. And the first time she was nursing and said "booby" was just the cutest! DD "nurses" her baby doll now, and last night DH was watching her while she was playing, and he said he thought she was pretending to nurse from a fairy doll she has (similar to a Barbie).
Plus, the power of the booby is so awesome that it cures all bumps and ouchies (like vaccinations) and quickly soothes DD's toddler temper tantrums.
It makes me sad that public opinion is so much more judgemental when it comes to toddler nursing and so many people feel "obligated" to tell you their 2 cents on why it's time to wean.
