YES it can happen that way, that's how I ended up tandem nursing - my older dd weaned herself when my supply dropped in my 5th month pg with dd2, at first she would comfort suck even though there wasn't much there, but then she decided she liked her binky better. Once her baby sister arrived, and with her a whole new supply, she was right back wanting to nurse again and we picked up where we left off, which was fine with me! I think dd2 will be different though - she nurses much more than dd1 did at this age, esp at night, and she has never taken a pacifier (we learned our lesson on that one, never again - dd1 was fully potty-trained before we could get her to give up that dreaded binky, it was ridiculous!!) I didn't find tandem nursing to be hard though, so I'm fine with it, even if I end up triandem nursing!
