DD self-weaned at 19mo. when my milk finally dried out because I was pregnant again. She was 24mo. when DS was born and she tried for about 2sec. once in a while more out of curiosity, but with that twinkle in her eye, like, "yeah, right. I'm too big for this."<br><br>
But, the last few days, she's been persistent on trying again. Of course I let her try, though all those teeth can be scary looking! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> Problem is, how do I teach her to latch on correctly? I know she's not getting anything by the way she's sucking so she just gives up but then comes back to try later. Is it something I should encourage or just shrug and say, well she's being curious about what the baby is doing again?<br><br>
ETA: Sorry <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/duh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="duh"> Didn't notice a similar post further down on the page!

Hi, I have no advice, as I am the OP of the other "toddler re-learning to latch" thread. I hope you find what you're looking for. I don't think it is actually going to happen here--it has been about 22 months since my DD last nursed. And I don't want to make trying to do it "right" into a big deal. But good luck to you! I was just hoping that someone had a brilliant idea that I had no clue about...
