I don't know if you would consider this increasing nursing, but when DD was around that age (maybe a little younger) I was tandem nursing with her brother and it was really hard for me to set aside a long time during the day for her to nurse. So she could nurse, but limited durations. One thing that really helped her is that she did have one very long nursing session a day. Each day before bed she could nurse as long as she wanted. So, during the day, if I needed her to nurse not as long I could say, "well you can nurse for a long time tonight" and it really reassured her and made it easier for her to make the other nursing times shorter. That said, that meant I NEEDED to set aside time each night for her to have that really long nursing session.
