My just turned 4 year old loves nursing. I'm currently nursing my 4 month old. I had started to encourage my older ds to wean on his 4th birthday (since I'm feeling really unhappy about nursing him). Lo and behold, a couple of days before his birthday, my younger ds and I developed thrush. I cut of older ds completely. (He was down to once in the morning for about 15 seconds on each side). It's been about 2 weeks. He keeps asking if the thrush is gone and if he can nurse.
Frankly, I feel finished with nursing older ds. I'm happy to have made it 4 years, although he didn't get his big "send-off" birthday nursing. But he is so fixated on nursing! He told me he wants to nurse until he is five (first he told me he would nurse until younger ds is done - I asked if he would nurse when he's 8 years old - he laughed and said no.) He asks me everyday if the thrush is gone and can he start again.
Any input? I thought I could do CLW, but it's getting tough since he's so old and big next to my 4 month old.
