The only real problem with breastfeeding a toddler is that you are breastfeeding a toddler. They are active and wiggly and love to make games out of anything and everything. It’s all fun and games until mommy gets hurt. To keep that from happening, all we have to do is set firm boundaries and enforce them. I’ve heard from so many veteran moms that doing this helps kids recognize that unwanted touching is not OK. Modeling autonomy through the breastfeeding relationship benefits more than mom and child.
