Made it 28 months... now she is weaning. :(

She'd probably still be nursing if I hadn't gotten pregnant. She started telling me about 3 weeks ago that I didn't have any ice cream milk (she says my milk tastes like ice cream <3) And then she took her last drink about a week and a half ago... Followed immediately by the stomach flu (she has been sick ONCE in her life- she had RSV at 6 months old and hasn't had so much as a fever or cough since then.)

She has asked to nurse about 3 times since then but only sucks for about 3 seconds and then just lays her head on my breast and goes to sleep. I am so sad.

Big hugs!! My dd is 24 months and I know that time is coming for us. She's our last, too. But hey, you get to nurse your V baby!! That's kind of exciting. Congrats, and I hope you have a long and wonderful nursing relationship when your new baby arrives.

I hear ya.
My first weaned because of pregnancy, and neither of us took it well. So far, dd2 (26mo) is not weaning, but she's not very interested. more like checking in every day to make sure they're still there for her. but she also has really latched onto the concept that new baby = more milk, so I think I'm in for tandem nursing this time around
