I successfully breastfed my second child. It is a point of pride in my life.
Up to age 26 months I would let her have the breast at night for comfort.
Then I weaned her.
But her memories and experience of the "bwest" seems to be a major point in her life and it seems that if i allow her, she would be right back on it.
We joke about it all the time. She teases me, touches my breast, plays with it and says "mommy, I'm a baby" because she would love to get back on the breast.
I worry that I may be depriving her of a source of comfort that may be important and am almost thinking of reverting to allowing her breast at night. of course, I don't trust my motive for doing that. I'm wondering if thee is something that I need that may be causing me to think this way.
Maybe I feel that she is still just a little baby and that she is growing up so fast, and that i should at least allow her this one thing. But my breasts have been returned to first use as sex objects and I really don't feel comfortable criss crossing roles again. Its kinda weird......not so sure how to explain.
Please let me know your thoughts.
