Hi Mamas, I could use some hugs!
I'm 30 weeks pregnant with #2, and it looks like my DS has finished with na-na's. He only turned 2 in September, so it's earlier than I thought (and hoped) that he would stop! I had a really hard time with nursing in the beginning of this pregnancy - around the time my milk dried up I developed very, very strong aversions, it felt like spiders were crawling all over my body - and so I did end up putting some limits on the length of nursing. We'd do "alphabet na-na's" - I'd sing the alphabet a few times and once it was finished it was time to stop nursing. It was really the only way that I could get through it!
Now, he's uninterested. We talk about the baby nursing when he gets here, and I always make sure to say, "And you can have na-na's too, if you want them!" He always looks at me and smiles and goes, "No, no more na-na's." He doesn't seem sad or anything - just kind of done, which is exactly how I wanted him to feel when he was ready. I just didn't think it would be so soon, and I really miss nursing him! We do lots of snuggle time, of course, but there's nothing quite the same as nursing your little one, and it just makes me realize that he's so big - I nurse my babies, and he doesn't nurse anymore, so I guess he's not a baby (or, not as baby as he used to be)!
Did any of your little ones wean during pregnancy, then start again after their sibling arrived? I think if he remains uninterested I'll end up pumping milk and giving it to him in a cup occasionally for the physiological benefits - he was a preemie, so I want him to get those for as long as possible and give him a big strong immune system.
Hugs and support would be most welcome! This has been tougher than I thought it'd be!
