I thought I'd posted in this thread earlier in the month but I mustn't have. DS is almost 21 mths and still not night-weaned. We're planning to nightwean soon... we just moved and our other bedroom is full of the owner's furniture, so when that is moved, DS will probably sleep beside daddy for a while. Nursing is painful but he's catching on with the open wide to get a good latch thing, and then it isn't so painful. But I am going insane with the lack of sleep. He hasn't started complaining of a drop in supply but who knows. I really would love to tandem.

He is nightweaned and only nurses when he asks during the day (he does the "milk" sign) which is about 5 times a day. I had planned to at least get to 18 months especially since he was 6 weeks early. I'll just have to see how I feel. I'm not sure how my milk will hold out either. So far it is not uncomfortable at all and he keeps getting colds so I don't feel he should wean yet.
I see in your siggy that your second babe was born at 34 weeks, what about your first? I'm a little worried this one may try to come earlier than my 1st, and I'm wondering if you have read much about nursing during pregnancy when you've had a previous preemie birth?

DS was born at 36 weeks as well. Do you worry at all about nursing causing premature labor with this babe? Obviously I don't know the circumstances around your 13mth old's birth, but mine was SROM at 36+3... barely preterm, but still enough to bother me that this one may come even earlier, and that nursing may up the chance of that happening.
