I think you're right!
Just curious, is there a specific reason that you plan to wean him at 12 months?
Thanks for the advice. It's been on and off lately.
Nursing for comfort and to go to sleep is all quite normal. There is nothing wrong at all with it. And even for babies that do this, most of them are quite accepting if their mother is not there that they just get a cuddle or whatever from whoever is looking after them. But if you are there, then there is no reason not to nurse at all. Whether it is for food or for comfort, both of these are legitimate needs of a baby, and nursing to meet either or both of these needs is important for your little one. It will not spoil a baby to do this, rather, it helps them feel more secure as they grow to independence naturally.
Thanks for your response Teresa.
