I just read your other thread. Sorry you got no replies! Reading it today it seemed like you really didn't need help, you were figuring it all out.
By the way, my mom had weaned me at 2, though I don't know if it because she was pregnant (pain, no milk, that sort of thing) or b/c she didn't want to tandem.
But then my brother was earthside and nursing, and I got pretty high and mighty I guess, and explained that she had two "sip sips" and two children, and obviously she needed to make room for me. It worked (she always said I should have been a lawyer) and she nursed me until my brother self-weaned at 2. Tell THAT one to your hubby!
And my half-sister (different mom, same dad) went almost to 5 years old.
My guy is doing the same thing as your girl, with long stretches in between. He's 4 and 4 months, and I've started writing down each time he nurses. I don't want to miss the last time, you know?
And just to go into a teensy bit of my story to share, I'm wondering about last night when he asked for milk...while nursing he interrupted himself to ask "can I touch?" I don't normally let him touch my chest while nursing b/c if he does he starts trying to twiddle and squish, and I can't deal with that. So I said he could put his hand on the side of my breast, and asked why he wanted to. And he said "so I can remember how it feels".
Eek! I'm a bit sad, wondering if he really means that, wondering if it was the LAST.
I hope you, your girl, your new one, and also your hubby, can figure it all out with minimal problems!
