Is his behaviour normal for a 3 year old, or is it because he still breastfeeds?

by Claudine

My son is 3 years old and still wants to breastfeed. I have limited it to sleep time only. I understand that at this age there will be temper tantrums and crying if he does not get his own way. My question is, is my allowing him to still breastfeed making him 'naughty'?

My husband often gets annoyed with me when he hears him breastfeeding in the morning when I am grabbing a few more minutes sleep, and accuses me of making him naughty. He also says that I am affecting his development in a negative way. Please could you assist in clearing this up for us as it causes quite a bit of tension.
Thank you.
