|I had been thinking, "This child does nothing but nurse!" Then I realized this was precisely the case. I had not stopped thinking that nursing met all of Celeste's needs--as indeed it had for a long time. I had not observed until then that I was not giving Celeste the attention she deserved at times when she was not nursing.|

I'm crunchy... Like a Dorito.
Mama to Sprout 4.09 and Bruises 7.11 handfasted to 9.07
Both of my kids still nursed round the clock at 2.5 (well, DD had cut back a little because I was 8 months pg, but she certainly made up for it in months 31-36, lol).
They both weaned.
Humans are biologically programed to wean sometime in the 2.5-7 year range. The fact that a 2.5 year old is showing no real signs of weaning is totally normal. Just because it's normal, though, doesn't mean it isn't tiring
Dd hadn't cut back at that age. At that point she was nursing 10+ times a day.
Now, she's nearly 5 and nurses once a day.
They do wean eventually
She goes to day care three mornings a week for 5 hours and eats plenty of solids there, I am SHOCKED when the DCP tells me she ate a whole bowl of foods because that NEVER happens at home. I am lucky if I get her to eat five bites at any given meal.
