Are they nursing more now? DD has been on me all day today. i don't know why. She was down to nursing only at naptime and bedtime. But it seems like I can't catch a break for the last few days.

Your milk is probably changing again and getting sweeter/yummier.They also tend to get clingier right before the birth.

Seamus has some very nursey days and some days where he doesn't seem to care in the least.
I nurse him as much as my body says is OK, but when I start getting the creepy-crawlies I have to stop or I start being a mean mommy, and what's the point of that?
Usually between other foods and saying "get ready to be done nursing" followed shortly there after by a countdown from 10 or 5 to one we can avoid conflict, but not always.

I can't wait until the new baby is here just so nursing isn't annoying anymore. I hope I don't mind nursing the toddler then.

and planning to eat it again

The other day my DS said there was a little bit of milk and it was sweet. Up until then he'd been saying there was nothing there, which didn't dissuade him from nursing once or twice a day, briefly. So now I'm looking at nursing a 4yo and a newborn, folks! :

My 2 & 1/2 ds is still at it, too. Sometimes my nipples are so sensitive that I have to try to distract him with an activity so he won't ask I'm never going to completely deny him as I expect him to self wean anyway, but I'm thinking he's also helping me by preparing my nipples for that 24/7 newborn nursing thing. I have to keep that in the back of my mind when I'm wishing he'd leave it alone for awhile.
