Hi ladies,

I used to post here until my son self weaned when he was 24.5 months (beginning of Sept 10 he weaned). Well the last couple of weeks he's been BEGGING for boobies. It came out of nowhere. So I let him try, because I figured he'd see that there isn't any milk left and lose interest, well that is not the case and he even still knows how to suckle, which also surprised me. He's all over me again, asking for boobies all.the.time. I do let him, he usually doesn't nurse long but at night before bed, he could suck for hours if I let him. Is this normal? I just found out I'm pregnant so I'm not sure if that has anything to do with it. What would you do?

First of all, I have to say your children are beautiful!

If it was me, I would judge whether or not to start again on how you are feeling with your pregnancy. For example, if I was as sick with my next one as I was with DD, I wouldn't be able to handle breastfeeding. I wonder why he started asking again? Anything change?

I really believe your pregnancy could be the biggest reason! Kids are not dumb...they pick up on little things that we likely neglect! I would bet you smell like wonderful milk again lol.

Personally, I would let him do what he needs to do. However, it is you that has to deal with all that goes with that. Who knows, he may be done in a week or two or he may end up nursing with your little one months from now. That is your call! I know my mom allowed me to nurse more when my little sister Sarah was born. We have pictures to prove it! She said I did not continue for long before I was just too busy to lay around.

You have to decide how you feel on this. Do what feels right for you and your little one! It is totally normal though! My three year old niece BEGS to nurse with her little brother who is 4 months old. My sister just isn't comfortable with that and doesn't want to have to re-wean her. It is a to each their own deal IMO!

Congrats on the pregnancy though!!

I think we're in the process of re-nursing. He's been asking more and more, and really it doesn't bother me. I had planned on nursing him until he was 3 or 4, but he self weaned at 24months. I'd LOVE to tandem and if that's what happens great, if DS gets bored in a few days and is done, that's fine too. I'm just going to take it day by day. I have to say though, it's kinda nice to have him back in my arms all the time again.
