donutmolly - I just wanted to add that my ds has never been into milk (a bit milk sensitive I think), but he likes vanilla yogurt. I think the sweetness of it makes it more like mama's milk.

|lthough I am sad that I don't have a memory of the last time we nursed|
Ds is still nursing here. . I seriously don't think he'll be weaning anytime before the baby is born, either. He has concrete plans about nursing *with* the baby.
Some days, he only asks to nurse once (just before bed), other days its more like 3-4 times. I'm 17 weeks now, and my nipples are so, so sensitive/sore. But, since DS is 5, he isn't nursing for long periods, so I can manage ok. He says the milk tastes different now, but he doesn't mind.
We're down to twice a day for two minutes at a time (upon waking and before going to bed). I have virtually no milk and anything beyond a couple minutes causes major pain and contractions. Part of me is sad as I see this part of our relationship coming to an end but there is a part of me that is relieved too. DS has taken it really really well. I'm shocked actually. He's 19 mo. I suppose it's possible the current routine will continue until the baby comes and DS will pick up nursing more frequently again. I honestly don't know how I feel about tandem. It think it's a cool idea in theory but I'm not sure how it will work for us.
