I've heard moms say they only breastfeed once a week or that they work a lot and just marathon breastfeed when they are home. I am curious about this part time breastfeeding. Does it meet the child's nutritional needs for milk (and the child would need no other milk supplelment?) or is it just about comfort?
I've also read that Kathy Detwyler (breastfeeding expert) had a son that she continued nursing for a long time even AFTER her milk dried up. Any other moms out there do that?
