Oh dear, yeah, if he's that little I'd want to keep going too! Levi's 16mos old, will be 2 just after Bug's dd, so I'm not really worried about it with him.
I don't think he's going to wean on his own, but we'll work on it in another few months.

I don't think those are really great indicators. I have had the same things happening for months and months now, and Levi's been nursing the same as normal. The only time I actually noticed a real dip and him reacting to it (getting aggravated while nursing, not satisfied, etc) was right before AF was starting.

I am telling myself I can handle the soreness as long as I still have milk! He (16 mo) still nurses every 2-3 hrs around the clock, so it's impt to us.
