If you're nursing or have nursed well past the first year - may I ask how you decided this or how it came about? I don't mean the benefits because I've read about that from LLL, Sears and Kellymom. I guess I'm interested in logistics.
My mother (and others) says that babies generally loose interest around 13-15 months. And as much as I will miss it, the more active he gets, the more I think I'll be ready for weaning when the time comes. I don't want to take it away from him, but I don't want to nurse him into kindergarden. Of course, there's a lot of room in between those two!
I'm also not sure I want to put my body through the fatigue of nursing while pg and we want to think about that once DS is a little over a year.
Some of my questions include: Doesn't it complicate getting pregnant again? Make it harder and more tiring? And aren't you exhausted enough from nursing a newborn round the clock? Is it really worth adding a toddler to those painful, tired boobs? I really can't see myself nursing two at the same time, so shouldn't the first one be weaned early enough that he doesn't resent the new baby?
TIA for sharing your experience.
