My son will be 3 next month and it has become very painful when he latches because I am 6 weeks pregnant. For this and other reasons, I have decided that I do not want to continue nursing during pregnancy or tandem feed when the new baby comes.
I suspect my supply will be affected, which will make weaning easier, and to prepare him, I have told him that as kids get older sometimes their mommy's milk runs out. He uses that line now when he wants to switch sides, "I want that one because this one runned out of milk" but it doesn't seem to deter him at all.
Now I am wondering if it is appropriate to plant the idea that when he turns 3 he will be too big for "mommy milk." Or would that be damaging? What is the best way to approach this discussion? I can't just cut him off without warning, right?
