My 17 month old will bring (or attempt to bring) the boppy to me when he wants to nurse. I definitely think it has become a comfort thing. Although when we are in bed, he just lays on his side and wiggles till he gets close enough to me. He knows we don't need it then. I have no problem with him wanting to use the boppy. Actually, we think it's cute when he is trying to carry it over to me. He's not quite strong enough to pick it all the way up. He kind of shoves it over to me.
