Hi everyone! My 3 yr old self-weaned when I was in my first trimester of pregnancy. Either that or I just dried up & she gave up. Lately she has been telling me she can smell my milk (I'm having colostrum), and yesterday she pulled my top down and latched on!
I'm pretty positive that once she sees the new baby (due Easter) nursing, she'll want to go right back to it. I'm nervous about this because she was VERY demanding even up until she weaned, nursing almost constantly and completely freaking out if I told her not now...also I caught so much negativity and flack from in-laws, and other people IRL it just seems like it would be so much easier on me if she were done nursing.
I've never been opposed to tandem nursing, especially if she had continued throughout the pregnancy, but now it just seems like it would be soooo much easier on me to just have the baby to nurse.
Any tips on making this easier on both of us? I'm not going to make it a huge battle, if she insists I know I'll give in. But truly, I do wish I only had to worry about nursing a newborn and not a very demanding 3.5 year old too.
