I was a first generation breastfeeding Mama. I was determined to go against what was considered normal in my family and circles and breastfeed my babies. I did eight months with my first and a little over a year and half with my second. Weaning was not an issue, although I would’ve rather that been an issue versus what I am facing now with an extremely stubborn 3 year old.
At night she will beg to climb in my lap whilst whining ” I want to nurse” which basically means she wants to lay her head on my boob and suck her tongue until she goes to sleep. She is constantly rubbing my breast and any other woman’s breast that picks her up, and I won’t even go into her bra fetish. When she gets really sleepy she will bust in my room hollering, ” I need the bra.” I thought she would’ve grown out of it by now but it seems to be getting worse.
Had none of these issues with my son. When he was done he was done. Her fake nursing and bra blankie shenanigans have been going on for nearly 2 years now and I need her to stop. I figure it might be comforting to her but who wants to see a 5 year old carrying around a bra. She has now taken it to another level. Put her in her car seat the other day, strapped her in and didn’t notice anything weird. Get to a stop light and turn around to look at her and she is on this….
What is this about? Anybody else had these issues? Please tell me my baby isn’t the only one with this weird behavior.
