I have a two year old too, and I know exactly what you're talking about! The thing is, I don't nurse him anymore, and I haven't for a while. "Choosing to do extended breastfeeding" is probably not the issue. Even though he doesn't wake asking for milk, he wakes all the time crying for water, for snuggles, because he wet the bed, because he's cold, because he wants to hold sissy's hand, because his mosquito bites are itching... And the mini dragon, oh how I know it. He talks perfectly intelligible during the day, but it's like he completely forgets how to talk in the night, and therefore reverts to anything from groaning to wide mouthed screeching.
All that to say, it may just be because she's two? Some of the best advice I've been given is to be firm in your response and be consistent. It's so hard to do that in the night I know... Rationality is not at it's peak, and zombie like emotions lord over the night.
Keep going, don't be afraid to try new things... Other than that, awesome job for still breastfeeding her, I wish I had kept going with my son ;)
