For DD it could have worked because I was nursing DS at the time (so had plenty of milk). I just didn't find it necessary because DD was already over 4.
For DS, since he was over 5.5 not only was my milk supply WAY down, I don't think he would have gone for it at all. He was happy about weaning and wouldn't have wanted bmilk in a cup.
For a younger toddler (under 2-2.5) I would definately investigate the possiblity, but with an older *child* I think part of CLW is the child actually not *needing* any milk at that point. Oh, this would also obviously be different for a child w/a medical condition that could be helped by bmilk.
