|Well I don't think I'll be here much longer as dd hasn't nursed in 2 days. Shes only 3.5 and Im a little sad but I guess she is ready.|

Makes me nervous to put that out there but I figure that if anyone would be supportive, it would be in this forum.

But then, when he was newborn, I couldn't imagine nursing a 2 or 3 year old!
I hope I don't have to lead, but I have been under enormous pressure for 2 years now and my mom frequently reminds me (she said it once in front of him and I told her she needed to voice these concerns privately) that he could be taken away from me if I don't wean him. So, I am still hanging in here and ds still needs it...I would say he nurses approx. 8x a day, counting night nursing, but of course this varies...
I want to do clw, but I may not be able to.
