DD is almost 22 months, we still nurse a few times a day, and I'm newly pregnant w/ #2. I'm not sure how I feel about tandem nursing, but I definitely don't want to wean, so there it is. Sometimes I think I'm done, and then we'll have a slow day and I'll get so sad! so IDK. I don't think DD is anywhere near weaning, but since we nurse so infrequently, I wonder if my milk will dry up as my pregnancy progresses. Sometimes I'm amazed I still have any!

Thanks!

Hi! Welcome and congrats! I'm Adrienne and though I mostly lurk on this board I had to post today. I got pregnant with #2 when DD was 22 months old and I understand your emotions completely! I could have written this same post 8 months ago. In fact, I STILL don't know how I feel about tandem nursing but I'm pretty much out of time (I'm due in June). Have you heard of or read "Adventures in Tandem Nursing?" It is an excellent resource and pretty much covers everything from weaning to not weaning to sore nipples to supply issues. There pretty much is no "standard" pregnancy and nursing experience. Some people have a drop in supply, others don't. Some toddlers lose interest, some stubbornly persist despite there being no milk (like my DD). Early on I was thankful to still be nursing (though it hurt like heck!) because it meant I could lie down on the couch and nurse DD instead of chasing her around the house. I took things one day at a time and waited to see what would happen and if my feelings changed as time went on. Hang in there and if you aren't ready to wean, don't.

My older nursling just weaned! I approached it willing to go wherever she took things since I got pregnant when she was not even a year. I felt very guilty and that she should have at least until she was 1 and I preferred until she was 2. Here she is 3 1/2 and just weaning. While things weren't always easy, and I wasn't always thrilled with tandem nursing, I still would never change things. It worked out for the best for us.

No matter which way you end up going it will be the right choice for your family. I think you are approaching it in the most perfect way.
