Wow - now I feel so much better because I was also there two summers ago. It surely doesn't feel that long ago. Anyways, my oldest was also nursed, but she stopped when I was about 5 mos along pregnant with my youngest. I guess my body was making my milk taste much different to prepare for the baby cause she started making faces at me being all confused every time she'd tried, so she just simply gave up on her own and while I was sad about it, I felt relived as I didn't want to tandem nurse. I thought my youngest would stop around the same age, but much to my surprise, she still nursed at 2 and so finally it came to that point where I had enough and didn't want to continue nursing, once again I was sad because I knew our bond over nursing would be gone. I was always the one my kids wanted until they got older, they now run to Daddy for just about everything. I know it's probably just a phrase and they do tend to switch off alot between Daddy and I.
Anyways, good luck on the weaning process. It took like 3 mos for me and it was very tiring because my youngest would cry and cling on to me but we made it thru. I just talked to her and said that Mama's milk was going bye bye cause she was a big girl now. And while that made her sad, it helped.
[QUOTE=ElfieNLynx;2813414]I was in the same boat. When my son was 2 1/2 I decided that I was done breastfeeding, but apparently he wasn't going to let go without a fight.
He was doing it for comfort, mostly for naps and at bedtime. I really can't give any amazing advice, since I was very tough when it came down to it.
