I wasn't sure whether I should put this in the tandem nursing section or here, but figured I might get more responses here. sorry if it's the wrong place.
My older son is 4yrs 8 months, and nurses morning and night, ocassionally more if he's unwell or something.
I'm in no huge hurry to wean him, but he does have to finish eventually, and he's not showing any real signs of losing interest. My eldest self weaned at around 3 and a half years, so I'm just a bit suprised to find him still so enthusiastic.
I'm assuming this is, at least in part, due to the fact that I'm tandem nursing. I imagine my supply would have dwindled a fair bit by now otherwise, and that may have encouraged the weaning process.
Anyway, as I said, I've no specific date in mind that I want him finished by, but with his 5th birthday just around the corner, I have been thinking about it a bit. The problem is, my younger son is only 2 and a half, and I have absolutely no wish to wean him yet. (Don't think I could even if I wanted tbh!)
Does anybody have any ideas how I might gently wean DS1, whilst continuing to nurse DS2, without upsetting DS1 too much? No particular time frame in mind, but assuming DS2 continues for another 1-2 years, if DS1 keeps nursing whilst his brother does, that will take him to nearly 7, and I think I'd like to be done before then.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
