Putting limits on nursing could be causing your toddler to nurse differently. Your reluctance to nurse could be affecting your breastfeeding hormones and that affects you and your toddler. Children benefit from hormones they ingest in the milk. You could try forgetting the gentle weaning and limits and nurse more. You may find that once you put weaning out of your mind that you enjoy nursing more and you won't have those anxious feelings.

Children who are able to nurse beyond 3 years are very lucky. They may not have to have braces because they have nursed until all their baby teeth have come in. Human milk changes to meet the child's needs. The child may have fewer illnesses, milder symptoms, and get well quicker. The worldwide average age of weaning is over 4 years.
