    okay, how do I stop this? I mean, every single time I sit down on the sofa, she runs over and wants to nurse. i'm trying to figure out how to cut her nursing sessions down to bedtime and naptime, but it's hard when we're home and every time I sit, she thinks it's time to nurse. what do I do?
    she nursed like 45 times yesterday because of this.  however, her fang teeth are popping through, so that could be a reason ...
    I don't know what i'm doing lol

    Nurse her! ;) There's no harm in it whatsoever. Toddlers breastfeed for many, many reasons - hunger is only a tiny part if it all.

    That being said, if you are looking to set some boundaries or start introducing some breastfeeding manners, check out this list of articles from Kellymom on breastfeeding past the 1st year:
