    i gave in.......attempted to allow her to nurse....and she bit me so many times.
    poor child. she was worried that she had hurt mummy
    but, guess what....the breast matter is now settled for me.
    my baby really doesn't need the breast just the comfort, time and special attention. sigh.
    Thanks ladies.

    My 3 1/2 year old will still to this day at times want me to hold her in my arms so she can "pretend I'm a baby" and she will mimic nursing briefly over my clothing.

    thanks for this graciepoo. I revisited this post, because the issue continues...i have increased my cuddle time with her. she really likes that.
