no, he is using you as a soother and thus becomes quite dependant on you. Do you find that he wants a boob everytime he is fussing or crying or restless? Does it bother you at all?

Another thing is that perhaps he is not getting enough out of you, ie. your milk is too thin and he cannot go on for longer periods of time. I strongly disagree with moms who think this is a good idea. At 6 months, your baby should be starting on solids and thus giving you the freedom to be your own person, not a 24/7 milk bar.

Of course. The best thing to do is nurse on demand. Babies don't just suckle to feed, they soothe themselves like one would with a pacifier too.
