I let them self-wean. Or try anyways. Ashlynn nursed until I was 12 weeks pregnant, and has dry nursed every few days here and there ever since. If she wants to go back to mamas milk when brother is born, so be it.
Originally with her my goal was 3 months. Then 6. Then a year. Then I said the heck with it, she can wean whenever she wants.
I plan to let this little guy self-wean as well
It gets tiring, but it's sooo worth it. Ashlynn got sick a lot less when she nursed..then once she stopped actually getting milk I noticed she was getting sick more often
Felt awful and still sorta do. So I secretly hope she still wants to nurse when brother is born.
