breastfeeding waffles anyone?

i keep waffling, yes, no, yes, no, yes, no.

this last two weeks i seriously tried to wean boo. we were down to 5/6 times a day and i got him down to 3 times, and then tried to quit.

i am an evil evil bitch.

i am sticking at 2/3 times a day, no less, maybe more. he was HEARTBROKEN.

how often do you guys nurse your toddlers? boo is 19 months.

i think i got nervous because i plan to ttc in the next year, i really need to "come to terms" with tandem/nursing though pregnancy. i got so depressed. i am MUCH happier now that i'mnot tryign to pry him forcefully off the boob anymore.

have you read the natural child? it really altered my ideas about child spacing, stressing the importance of 3 year spacing in order to not breed problems. another benefit to 3 year spacing would be tandem nursing would be easier, and maybe the toddler would have weaned themself by then.

echo is 24 months old now, and nurses *usually* 3-6 times a day, for varying lengths of time. some days i'm gone most of the day and she nurses only twice, and seems unaffected. i'm sure she'd flip if i tried weaning though!
hmm, i'll look into that book.
before i read it, i was *all about* getting pregnant a/s/a/p. since i read it, i notice more and more families with closely spaced problematic kids :O
Aiden is 18 months on the 24th and he nurses 3-8 times a day depending on what we are doing.

If I am readily avaliable for him, i.e sitting on my ass on the puter, he comes and nurses like I am an all night buffet. However, if we are out and about, then he nurses like twice during the day and that's it.
Sean is 15 months as you know :-P and he nurses about 3-6 times a day. But it all depends if we spend all day inside or if we go out.
