I recently weaned ds (5) off of nursing at bedtime and upon waking up. We did it very gently and gradually and he seemed to do really well with it. It has led to him almost weaning. He still does ask occasionally in the morning when he wakes up but I will say no, but we can nurse later on in the day. And then he doesn't end up asking later on. He's nursed twice in the last two weeks.
I have been tandem nursing for almost two years and my two boys have been such good friends and super close. Ds1 is so gentle with ds2. But ever since ds1 nursing has gone way, way down, I've been having issues. Ds1 will just walk up to ds2 and hit him, or throw a toy at him, or sit on him, or do anything to make him scream. Ds2 has also been nursing like a newborn and really whiny.
I just wonder if ds weaning has anything to do with it. Maybe he wasn't really ready to stop his daily morning and night nursing session? He truly seems ok with it. Even when he asks, he is fine when I say no. Does beg to at all, which is something he normally does when he really wants to nurse.
Those that have tandem nursed, what is the relationship like between your two nurslings? Has anyone experienced kids fighting more when one weans? Any one have any advice? Could it be that ds1 just wasn't ready to wean to this extent? Could he be jealous of how much ds2 gets to nurse?
