Breast Feeding

I have a seven year old daughter who is still suckling even though there is no milk coming out. Is it a comfort thing for her and is it safe for me?( Worried about breast cancer)

It probably is a comfort thing. There is no danger to you, but I would suggest that you get her off this from a psychological point of view.

Best wishes
