    Question Toddler weaned, planning on BFing newborn, will she want it?

    DD3 weaned around 21 months, when she is about 30 months I will have our baby, I plan on breastfeeding. She doesn't seem to remember nursing. We always said num nums when we talked of nursing, and now when I say num nums she goes to the kitchen to find food. But will she remember when the baby is nursing? Do you think she will want to nurse again? Any advise or opinions will be great.

    She may remember, she may not. She may want to join in, she may not. Great answer, right? Basically, I just don't think that you can predict how an older child will react to a new, nursing baby.

    If she does want o unwean, there's a book out there called "Adevntures in Tandem Nursing" which might be helpful.
