Today my teething son and I were disconnected and I was frustrated. I assume he felt similarly - he wasn't happy for more than ten minutes at any given time. Well at bedtime just now, he nursed and laid there quietly comfort nursing for some time after he stopped getting any amount of milk. It was just what we both needed, I think <3. I didn't want to put him down, and he had no desire to let go. Finally after about 15 minutes, I unlatched him and gave a very cuddly boy to his father to put into the crib. I <3 nursing, and I'm scared for the day when we don't have that instant bonding and calming tool at our disposal anymore.

nursing is so useful in so many ways! i have no idea how to care for a baby without nursing it. I had to watch a friend's kid overnight and when she cried, i did not know what to do, because my DD rarely cried as a baby, i always just nursed her
