that - I didn't really start limiting in public until around age 3. It is a great time to start thinking about your personal limits, though, and to start introducing some gentle nursing manners for your little one.
My DH is a minister with a flexible schedule, so for doctor/dentist visits, I plan them for first thing in the morning and he stays home/goes in to work late. Weekly grocery shopping gets done while the kids are at martial arts class on Thursdays. Everything else is done with kids in tow.

I did sometimes nurse them together, but sometimes just one or the other. It was about 50-50 for us.
Will your toddler start nursing for longer?

It's been a really good fit for us.
we LOVE Math Mammoth - we've used Singapore with success but it's cumbersome with all the books. We like MUS, and use it to supplement, but we LOVE MM!
I took Zoloft throughout my 2nd pregnancy. He and I were both perfectly healthy throughout the pregnancy. He had no trouble breathing at birth, no heart trouble, no trouble nursing. My OB was comfortable with my taking it; his own wife took it through her pregnancy. He's 6 years old now, and has always been in perfect health.
I can't tell you what to do for you, but that's what I did and I don't regret it at ALL - I did still experience some PPD after his birth, but not...
12 months for DD - seriously. Every time we tried to wean her off it (from 5 months onward) she would.not.sleep. So we swaddled. One evening at 12 months old, she fell asleep next to me in bed - seriously the first time she fell asleep on her own EVER, and since then, she's been ok without it.
2 weeks for DS; he slept well without it and got angry when swaddled (DD calmed INSTANTLY with it).

She has tons of sample pages, and it's CHEAP. I was kind of shocked how good it is, cheap,and how much DS loves math
I highly, highly, highly recommend Math Mammoth for...
