she weaned at about 27 months, when i was prego and in pain nursing. we were only down to once a day but she probably would've kept it going for a while longer. so she's always been nostalgic about it and i thought she'd be all over me when ds was born....she wasn't. didn't even ask.
one day when i was dressing, she ran over and just latched on! ( she's almost 3 now, so this is about 8-9 mos later. it was only for a second and then she stopped.
well, today after a major meltdown, we were rocking and she says, " i want nunny milk." i said, "you do?" and she shook her head with this pitiful little look. i said, " you can have a little bit." she nursed for maybe 3 minutes and then stopped. she was sooooo happy when she was done, and i really felt like it was the right thing b/c she's been having so much trouble adjusting to her new brother.
i always told myself i'd do it if she asked. i just don't want to be full-blown tandem nursing. i know that i would want to set limitations. but how? what do i say to her if she starts asking all the time? i don't want this to cause a war with her baby brother. ugh, maybe i should've thought this out before it happened...
