I thought that at a certain point they would stop on their own, but they don't seem any less interested now than they've ever been. In fact, as he gets older DS seems like he's getting even more attached. He's always tried to put his hand in my shirt but lately he's been trying to fondle me and put his head inside my shirt.. Like a half dozen or more times a day I'm having to tell him to stop trying to pinch my nipples or get his head or hands out of my shirt. Yesterday I was trying to buckle him in his carseat and he wouldn't get his hands in because he was trying to rub my breasts, saying "mmm, milky!" It's so invasive, and against what I'm trying to teach them about body privacy and personal space. I'm putting boundaries up, but I don't know how normal this because I don't know any nursing preschoolers.
DH is getting uncomfortable with it and has recently mentioned maybe it's time to wean. He has been supportive but now is starting to waver. It also really bothers him that when he tries to put the twins to sleep they (especially DD) will try to physically push him out of the room, saying "Go away Daddy! We want Mommy milky!" It would be nice for him to get that special cuddle-to-sleep time that I get with them and for me to get that time with my older child. But they aren't even ready for a night off, apparently.
I'm starting to wonder if they'll ever wean on their own? I thought I was going to do mostly CLW but also somehow I thought they'd want to stop around now. Is any of this I'm experienceing common? How did your kids stop nursing and how old were they?
