My DD just turned three yesterday, and she's still nursing. A lot. She nurses first thing in the morning (we co-sleep), and usually around lunchtime she'll nurse as well. She used to nap then, so a part of me wanted to keep that nursing session, on the off chance that she'd drift off to sleep (which happens rarely). She usually nurses again to sleep in the late afternoon, and then again to sleep at night.
We've coslept from the beginning, and I've transitioned her over to her own bed. She sleeps mostly thru the night now.
But I'm TIRED of nursing. I've been nursing or pregnant for seven and half years now, and I'm ready to be done. I nursed my DS until he was close to four, and I was midway thru my pregnancy with her.
I can't cut her off cold turkey, I know that. And truly, I've got no desire to have it be a traumatic experience, but I think my supply is dwindling. I don't feel a let down anymore, but it does start to get fairly painful if she nurses for too long, which leads me to believe that the milk just isn't there anymore. I'm hoping for guidelines and help - I was six months pregnant with my DD when my son weaned, and I'm sure that pregnancy played into his weaning. Plus we were able to have my DH take over putting him to bed, which eliminated the nursing to sleep component. My DH is working nights now, so that's not an option.
