There's more on this post in my other post about crossroads.<br><br>
and another where I posted <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> that she had not nursed for several days and I really didn't remember "the last time"<br><br>
Well, right after that, she asked. And I can't refuse an innocent "boo?" with "that look"<br><br>
Followed by latching on and "that other look" you know the one.<br><br><br>
and then I asked her about sharing with the baby. Who is due well, any day now.<br><br>
And she says, my just 21 month old baby herself says "share Zahir boo" (that's baby's name, well, unless he just looks like something else when he comes out I guess) <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/happytears.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="happytears">:

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. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
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.<br><br>
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! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue"> And my half-sister (different mom, same dad) went almost to 5 years old.<br><br><br>
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?<br><br>
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".<br><br>
Eek! I'm a bit sad, wondering if he really means that, wondering if it was the LAST.<br><br><br>
I hope you, your girl, your new one, and also your hubby, can figure it all out with minimal problems!

aaagghhhh I remember twiddling! around the same time we had the nursing-at-bedtime issue, maybe shortly before, I had to start wearing an old, loose bra to bed just to cover up the other side and make it impossible for her to twiddle because I just could not handle it anymore! (fortunately she took it just fine.) I don't know if she got rougher in some kind of attempt to make the milk come faster or if it was part of being pregnant and nursing but I could not handle it!
