Take really deep breaths. Mine are almost 2 and 5.5 and EVERY time I sit down, the 2 yr old wants to nurse. EVERY time. It's taxing, to say the least. Then, when I get 5 mins alone not nursing, the 5 yr old needs yadayadadyada and can I put this together and talks talks talks. I've had to set limits on nursing. It's not ideal as we were practicing baby-led weaning, but sheesh. My boobs are not a carnival ride!

My first was like that. Strict limits in the second year was a lifesaver as we both learned new ways to relate and he developed coping skills that he hadn't had to develop before. Honestly I never let my second nurse that much. I think it was a mistake the first time around. In infancy, no problem. But not as she got older.
Some people don't mind it but I hated it. YMMV.
