I've definately been there! As my kids got older there was definately a point where I felt jealous of my friends who had children who CLW from 2.5-3. I remember talking to people who would *never* night wean and thinking, "Yeah, that's pretty easy to say when your 11 month old sleeps more than my 4 year old!!!"
Anyway, I definately understand the feeling.
There are a number of things you can do. What is right *for you* is up for you to decide:
1) Unrestricted nursing. Some children when given limits cling to nursing *more* than they would have anyway. I have had limited success (definately not leading to actual weaning, but to better nursing behavior and less annoyance for me) by deciding, "I am going to let you nurse AS MUCH AS YOU WANT for the next four weeks." Often kids are picking up on the negative vibe which stresses them out which... leads to clinging to nursing
2) Improving nursing behavior. She is old enough to understand that if she wants to nurse, then she needs to nurse. When DS got to a certain size I was fine saying, "Oh, it seems like you need to wiggle. Why don't you go do that and come back *when you want to nurse*" Now, he was stilll an acrobatic nurser, but if he's grabbing his feet and trying to turn summersaults he can do that while my nipple isn't between his teeth!
3) Figure out what *you* are missing and try to fill that. Sometimes women get really tired of nursing and it doesn't actually have *too* much to do with the actual nursing. Maybe it's actually not being able to sit down without immediatley being pounced on. Maybe it's not getting more than 3 hours of sleep in a row. Maybe it's not having any alone time. Think about what you think would change with weaning and see if you can meet that same need withouth weaning.
