Fatigued from extended nursing?

I am nursing my 3.5 year old DS and 1.5 year old DD. They both still nurse about 4-5 times a day. Ever since giving birth to my DS, I've been feeling tired pretty much all the time. They're both sleeping through the night now and I'm wondering whether the nursing contributes to my continued fatigue. No matter how well I eat, sleep and exercise, I remain tired. By the way, I've had my thyroid etc. checked and all is well. Would love to hear your views! Also, any suggestions on how to taper the nursing (not wean, just taper) without getting mastitis (which I am very prone to get - any fluctuation in the nursing pattern, and I'm getting blockages).
