Re: Should I talk to my toddler about weaning?
With the pregnancy thing, I've found it best to just take things as they come. When it hurts too much to nurse, I tell him and we deal with it. When we had gotten down to 3 sessions a day and I was very okay with that and he seemed to be, then suddenly started melting down, we nursed more for a couple of days, then I went back to limiting.
I'm not sure he'd really understand that he has to keep nursing and even if he did, your pregnancy is going to impact that, too. So, I guess I'd probably just follow his lead. If he does want to nurse in a month, you can talk about it with him and see if he really wants to or if the idea just popped into his head. If he does and there isn't much milk, you'll get through that, too. Maybe not without tears for both of you, but you will get through it. And then again, by that point, he might just need a bit of comfort at that moment, knowing it's still an option, and that be the end of it.
Have you read How Weaning Happens? It's a really quick read and there are lots of stories from moms about a wide variety of weaning experiences.
