Maris: My son stopped nursing at 2.5 and for a long time after would put his hand on a boob (didn’t have to be mine) when he was tired or sick. It’s normal. It’s a comfort thing. He’s now 4 and rarely does it.
Amy: My daughter weaned herself at 14 months and still asks to nurse about once a week (she’s 18 months). There’s nothing there but it’s a nice cuddle for both of us.
Stacy: My sister in law let my niece dry nurse for a while until she no longer wanted it. It was comforting to her and helped her fall asleep. It was useful in the transition too.
