Also still nursing. Alec (great name Twinmom!
) nurses whenever, sometimes only once a day, sometimes a bunch. I ended the nursing-sleep association a while back for my sanity--I reached the point that if I didn't partially wean, I would totally wean, which Alec was not ready to do, and in my heart, I wasn't either. So, boobs are sore when he latches and when he delatches
, but my milk supply seems fine. I have started getting really antsy during some nursings--I ended the nursing a couple times and offered again later, which at 2, he is pretty tolerant of. I've read part of AITN, but then loaned it to a friend who was actually tandem nursing, where as I was just trying to prepare myself for the possibility! I am planning to take it one day at a time. If I reach the point where I just can't stand it, I will kindly, gently wean him. I am wondering if he will just wean himself when my milk dries up (this happens 2nd tri, right?) But then again, even if he weans, he could start up again when baby is born, which I think
I am fine with. Sigh. This is so hard sometimes! Esp since dh is not totally sold on the idea of toddler nursing and very suspicious of nursing while pregnant and sorta uncomfortable with tandem nursing. He would never tell/ask me to quit, but. . . I get frustrated/sad when he sends bad vibes at me. One day at a time, one day at a time, one day at a time . . .
Its really nice that there are so many of us, esp very experienced mamas.
