I'm currently nursing my ds, 33 months. I also have a 5 year old dd. She was nursed until about 22 months when I was 3 months pg with ds. Shortly after he was born she did nurse some but that didn't last long. She has always been welcome to sit and cuddle with us while I am nursing ds and I try to make sure she gets her fair share of cuddles with me. Recently I have noticed that she seems jealous or bothered by ds nursing. She makes sort of snide remarks about it or walks out of the room when she sees he is nursing. He doesn't nurse that often anymore, usually about 3 times a day so its not like we are doing it all day long. Anyone experience this type of jealousy or have any advice. Thanks, Micky
