You will not break the bond you have with your son by stopping breastfeeding. There are SO many ways to bond. If breastfeeding was the only way to bond then there would be no dads that have bonded to their babies. At 3 yrs old you can do lots of activities together that will be bonding time. Play Candyland, make crafts, go play at the park together and run around and swing with the playground activities with him. You can also still have snuggle time without having to breastfeed. Enjoy the stage your child is in....he is a toddler and can do so many things that you can enjoy bonding with him with.
