After getting over some issues in the first month, my daughter and I have had a perfectly lovely nursing relationship. She is 15.5 months now, and baby #2 is due at the end of July. She eats solids pretty much non-stop and drinks a lot of water. She's not nursing to sleep at night or for her nap, but in the afternoon she still wants to nurse all the time. She has been sick and has four teeth coming in, so I haven't been trying to refuse. Over this past weekend, when my husband was home to distract her, she didn't nurse at all (my choice, I'm sure she would have if I'd been more accessible).
I don't really know what my question is, but I am becoming frustrated with the situation. I would like to have her fully weaned well before #2, but I'm not sure how (even more) gradual weaning will work with her, and when it is just the two of us (which is most of the time) I don't have the energy to distract her when ALL she wants is to nurse.
She's a toddler, so she wants all sorts of things she can't have, and I don't want to add needlessly to her frustration or anxiety, but I don't see any end in sight, and I would really like to! Any advice would be greatly appreciated :o)
