My dd1 was 22 months when dd2 was born. She had pretty much quit while I was pg, although she nursed from my sister a few times. She would just latch on and suck a few times, pull off and use my breast as a pillow to fall asleep on. I was REALLY hoping she would go back to nursing when my milk came in but she was not interested.
But I have friends whose children went right back to it like nothing had ever happened. I think it would definitely make the transition easier if toddler goes back to nursing.

First of all, my then 27 month old son declared, "Mommy, you make rice milk!" and went back to happily nursing. In the long run he started nursing nearly as often as my newborn daughter, but he shared quite nicely. He loved to tandem with her and hold her hand. I think it really helped them to bond. Also, it was kinda nice to have him nursing so I didn't have to worry so much about balanced meals for him during the postpartum time.
