OK, this may be get me flamed big time, but...
I think there is a reason that the nursing guidelines say "as long as mutually desirable". Maybe its time to think about weaning? I know that many want to nurse as long as possible, but maybe its better to quit while its still a good relationship than quit later but have some emotional damage to repair because of it? If your child is feeling you flinch each time he tries to nurse, maybe its not such a good thing anymore. After all, you need to take care of yourself as well as your child. While I might put a higher priority on the child at age 3 months, by the time he is 3 years I think its healthy for the balance to shift a bit. Just a thought and not meaning to be unsupportive.
