by comfort I didn't necessarily mean negatively. What I meant was I don't find it totally necessary. But personally I do think it has more to do with the comfort of both mother and child. By 2 they are usually teething and I know dd1 was comforted by me when I bf. Which then led to me feeling comforted that she is being soothed and distracted and able to get some much needed sleep once she feel asleep. I do think it is odd to see a "child" bf. and I know the mother isn't necessarily having an easy time of it from experience. It is definitely a bonding thing. But for me, age 2 is it.
