aren't you glad there is a place like la leche league where a mom can come and admit that she is touched out and where there are other moms who can relate and perhaps help her feel less isolated!
of course your feeling touched out. you are apart from her while your're at school. you are working hard at your studies to improve your families future and what you need when you come home is an adult to appreciate your hard work. an adult to take you in his arms and love you for your selflessness. A whiny needy toddler just doesn't cut it.
but your daughter doesn't know that. she just knows that she missed you all day. And the one way she is able to get your undivided attention is to nurse.
You can nurse her to calm her fears, to reconnect and to boost her nutrition .it is the one size fits all answer to easy mothering.
some day all she will want from you is a cell phone and the car keys.
