I nursed my daughter until she was 4 and hated the last 3-4 months of it. She was still nursing 3-4x a day on days I worked and begged constantly on my days off. As a "reward" for weaning she got to go on a vacation (one week) with grandma and auntie. Weaning was horrible. My mom did not tell me until later, but she cried every night for "milky". When she came home it was no better, she asked to nurse for months after. I think she still would if I would let her.
Now my son is two and I'm not ready to wean him yet, but am due in feb with #3. Did I make weaning more difficult by tandem nursing (but brother gets "milky"). I do not want a repeat of what happened the first time. Is there any age that is easier to encourage weaning at? My sister's kids all just stopped on there own, and the longest one "only" nursed for 23 months.
